Warehouse Assistant

Temporary, Full-time · Manchester

About the Role

This role will be focused on two crucial supply chain functions. The first is logistics coordination where you will support our Logistics Coordinator with the movement and coordination of shipments across our global supply chain. The second is warehouse operations, where you will be exposed to many different parts of the warehouse, logistics, and supply chain functions. Your time will be roughly 70-80% warehousing and the remainder logistics coordination. This is a great role for someone driven first starting out in their career. No prior experience in logistics is required and you will be trained alongside some great team members. 


This role is an hourly full-time contract role for 6 months and has the opportunity to develop into a full-time role within the specific career paths of either logistics or warehousing at the end of the 6-month contract. This role is based in our Salford warehouse. 


This role will be fast-paced at times and needs a team player who is willing to take ownership and contribute to support our mission. As an early employee joining a rapidly scaling business, you will be well-positioned to directly make an impact on the business and progress professionally.

About us

Our mission is to make global supply-chain sustainability more rigorous, transparent and achievable for every business.

Sourceful was founded in 2020 by Wing Chan and Shiran Zheng. Together they had spent years helping build and scale global brands. As they did, it became clear that sustainability poses major challenges for businesses.

Global supply chains are complex. Affordable options are scarce. Reliable data is thin. And the language around sustainability is opaque. With these roadblocks, businesses can't make progress — and they can't address the climate crisis.

Sourceful was created to fix this: to help companies overcome the hurdles they face, reduce their carbon footprint and offer their customers better choices.


We ​look forward to hearing from you!
