Booker accelerates recruitment drive

Booker has accelerated its recruitment drive, with an open day at its Haydock Distribution Centre planned for 10 May and the launch of a new recruitment page on Facebook.

The wholesaler is currently seeking warehouse operatives (full and part-time) for its Haydock Distribution Centre, and is encouraging people to turn up to the open day with either their passport or birth certificate and National Insurance number. “By the end of it, you may be walking away with a new career working for the UK’s largest wholesaler!” said the company.

Booker is highlighting benefits of working for the business. These include 10% off Booker and Tesco purchases year round, with double discount days; life assurance; Tesco home/pet/life insurance; and discounts on Tesco Mobile.

Meanwhile, on the new Facebook page, Booker will be posting additional job advertisements and any new campaigns it launches across all 193 of its locations in the UK.

According to the Institute for Fiscal Studies, vacancies for warehouse workers in the five months to February 2022 were more than double the pre-pandemic level, and vacancies for drivers were 80% higher.
