Park Cameras Jobs

Full Time

The Company

Park Cameras is a leading retailer in the specialist photographic market, with an award-winning store / head office based in Burgess Hill, as well as a state-of-the art London store opened in 2013.  We are a growing and exciting family-run business established for over 40 years, and we aspire to become the first-choice speciality photographic retailer across the UK.

The Role

An exciting opportunity has arisen to run the company’s Warehouse Team (6-8 additional FTE).  Reporting to the Operations Director, you will be responsible for managing all aspects of warehousing - including goods in, stock transfers, stock returns, inventory management, stock-takes, internet order despatch (pick / pack / despatch) and customer repairs.  You will ensure that inventory is accurate and organised, that orders are accurately picked and despatched on-time, and keep the warehouse clean and tidy.  You will be able to self-motivate and inspire enthusiasm within your team, whilst holding team members accountable for their performance.  You will drive the warehouse forwards to meet the company’s growth ambitions.

The Person

The ideal candidate will be enthusiastic and energetic with a positive outlook, with solid warehouse experience in a retail environment, as well as a strong customer service ethic. As well as being flexible and adaptable you will be highly organised, able to effectively manage your own time and prioritise tasks for your team, and have the ability to get the best from people.

You will be hands-on and not afraid to get stuck in on a daily basis.  You will work closely with our contact centre, stores, buying and finance teams to meet the company’s objectives. A keen interest in photography would be beneficial but not a necessity.
