Warehouse Assistants

Online Retail

Fixed term contract: immediate start until Christmas 2021

Salary £17,374 per annum pro rata

Wisley, Woking, Surrey GU23 6QB

Full and part time hours available

We are looking for Warehouse Assistants who are enthusiastic, adaptable and energetic to help at our busiest time of year in the online retail department at Wisley Gardens. The work includes picking, packing and despatch of our customers' orders in the run up to Christmas.

As a Warehouse Assistant you will be focused into one of the two following areas:

  • Pick & collate: picking products for orders, matching up products with paperwork and collating the order for packing.
  • Packing: packing orders of all shapes and sizes, bagging parcels for collection, completing paperwork, assisting with moving stock.

The role involves a great deal of physical work and requires you to be methodical and organised. You also need excellent attention to detail and be able to work under your own initiative but also as part of a team.

Due to unprecedented demand we are looking for an immediate start, applications will be reviewed upon receipt rather than waiting for the closing date.

To work for the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS) is to join a thriving charity, whose mission is to inspire everyone to grow. Everything we do is built on the transformational power of gardening - and the benefits it brings to people, places and our planet.

Known globally for our inspirational Shows and five spectacular Gardens, our work extends to leading ground-breaking climate research, running community outreach programmes, and setting the standards in horticultural education. With the recent opening of RHS Garden Bridgewater and Hilltop, the world's first dedicated Centre for Gardening Science, at RHS Garden Wisley, there has never been a more exciting time to be part of our journey to make the UK a greener, and more beautiful place.

And we couldn't do this without our people. We're proud of the knowledge, enthusiasm and ideas that each one of our team members brings. From working across our social media channels, to volunteering in the Gardens, from serving customers in our Garden Centres to running national marketing campaigns, we believe that every member of the RHS team should have the opportunity to make a difference.

The RHS provides a number of great benefits for employees including:

  • Free parking for staff working at one of the five gardens
  • Free access to all RHS Gardens and Flower Shows
  • 20% discount on all RHS Retail
  • Discounted food and drink from the catering outlets at the gardens
  • Employee discounts at high street retailer and cash back scheme
  • 25 days' holiday (increasing to 28 and 30 with service)
  • Bike to work scheme
  • Pension with employers' contribution, which increases with length of service
  • Employee Assistance Programme for staff and immediate family
  • Monthly Garden magazine and access to gardening advice
  • Sponsorship for external studies

Safeguarding and Inclusion

The RHS is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children, young people and adults at risk and expects all personnel to share in this commitment. We are an inclusive employer and welcome applicants from all backgrounds.
