UK forklift drivers take note - the Pall-Ex freight network wants you!
One of the UK's largest palletised operations, Pall-Ex is hiring a range of people for its GBP12 million (USD22.27 million) Ellistown headquarters and is opening a second warehouse at Bardon.
The company needs call centre staff, administrative assistants and "as many forklift drivers as we can find", Pall-Ex marketing manager Chris Martin said.
"We've got room to grow. We need to grow," he told the Leicester Mercury.
Formed in 1996 by Hilary Devey, Pall-Ex employs about 130 forklift operators throughout the UK and Europe.
The company handles up to four million pallets a year through its 90 depots.
The main hub at Ellistown moves an average of 8,500 pallets per night.
