Orders Pick-&-Pack

Our nursery is generating hundreds of orders every week and we are in need of highly methodical and organised workers to assemble and quality check our customer orders, ready for despatch.

The ideal candidate will have experience in warehouse assembly operations, be physically fit and happy to work in all weather conditions.

You must be able to work on your own, read orders carefully and thoroughly and judge the quality of stock to deliver the best customer service possible.

Driver – HR

Our main and most important vehicle of our fleet is our Isuzu truck. The majority of our stock is picked up from our suppliers using this vehicle due to its vast holding capacity. And we order in a lot of stock!

We need a HR truck driver with years of experience operating manual trucks and driving Victorian roads. You will be charged with caring for your vehicle, reporting malfunctions, general maintenance needs and damage to our head of operations. And above all it will be kept clean and presentable!

Your main duties would include, but are not limited to, the pick up of stock from suppliers, checking picked stock against paperwork and delivering customer orders. A friendly and professional manner is a must as you will be dealing with a wide variety of people, from suppliers to customers. This job would be an interesting role for an experienced truck driver as you will be visiting a lot of nurseries and beautiful locations.
