We are looking to recruit right now.

We are happy to receive applications from staff at rival companies as much as we are from fresh faced newbies – but only if they are certain it is time for them to move on. If coming from another firm or if you have previous experience in the industry or close to it, such as, Deliveries, Estate Agency or Conveyancing it’s an obvious advantage.

Whilst we like to have a lot of fun here there is a steel backbone of rules and guidelines that underpin our service, so if after reading the description/s below you think ‘yes, that is me’, then great – get in touch.

However, please, if you do not fit what is written below then we respectfully request that you consider carefully if you wish to apply.

removal staff;

salary/pay

From 2022 we offer a base (non driving and no experience) starting salary of £20,800 per year. There are structured increases based upon 5% increments related to service and having or gaining a driving license.

If you have a driving license then after a probationary and skills acquisition period you can expect your salary to be just under £23,000 per year.

With C1 entitlement then it's slightly higher than this.

HGV drivers will start with us on more than £25,000 per year. This, after a probationary & skills acquisition period rises too over £28,000 per year.

There are massive uplifts in salary available based upon length of service. We also operate two separate annual bonus schemes. One based upon performance and another based upon revenue of the company. It is possible (at the top end) to achieve a 10% bonus right before Christmas.

Salaries here, as you’ve already read target and exceed the living wage, not the minimum wage.

Basic pay is the same month on month.

Overtime is paid at a flat rate of your normal day rate +50%. Overtime is classed as Sundays, Bank Holidays and some Saturdays (depending on contract of employment)

Overnight stays are in proper hotels. Think Premier Inn or Travel Lodge. The subsistence allowance ranges from £40-£65 depending upon your qualifications.

what the role requires

The role requires physical fitness, a smart, tidy appearance, good personal hygiene and individuals who are well mannered and polite.

These positions are not on fixed hours, however on average the start time will be 08:30, with one 06:30 start once every two to three weeks on average. Hours overall are then varied. In any given year, our employees will barely ever work 40 hours per week, however during peak periods late finishes are very possible. During off peak periods there is plenty of time off available, and many days will be only 4 or 5 hours long. We also offer a scheme
on quiet days where additional days off can be taken at a reduced rate of pay without affecting holiday entitlement.

Tardiness is not acceptable here. On average the time everybody rolls in here is circa 08:15 (where we brief and drink coffee for 15 minutes before commencing duties).

You absolutely will need to have the aptitude and willing to learn how to disassemble and reassemble furniture. You will need to supply and have available some tools of your own. The company will provide some (inc electric screwdriver) but not all. You absolutely will need to be disciplined enough to ensure you have the will to learn the correct methods of packing homes, moving furniture and packing vehicles. Most people here have a work rucksack with all their kit, gloves and lunch in.

what we're looking for

Age is no barrier but aptitude and view on life is! We have no time for sullen behaviour, miserable attitudes nor people who struggle to look up from their phones. You’ll need a thick skin.

We’re old school, that means this company and your colleagues will be there for you through 'thick and thin', however it also
means when needed the hairdryer will be out, and pointing in your direction (do an internet search for ‘Alex Ferguson Hairdryer’).

We don’t have time for snowflakes. Customers come first, second and third on the list of priorities, only after that do we worry about anything else. Without them we’re all bug&*”ed. This should be foremost in your thoughts at all times.

We’re also keen to hear from soon to be school leavers who might be more suited to a manual type job (let’s face it we can’t all be academic superstars and the world is a varied place).

School leavers that are either not going to college or who may only be studying for a couple of days per week from now on. We would consider younger applicants around their studies if those studies are only 2 or 3 days per week, as well as those looking for full time ‘proper’ employment (there are no zero hours contracts here!).

Current age range of removal staff here is 17 to 59 so age is no barrier (either down or up!). The person writing this started at 14yrs old as the Saturday lad delivering furniture.

If you are incapable of speaking the Queens English and choose to converse in either 'text speak', or via 'Chav chat', then it is probable that you might not win the right to wear our uniform, you must be able to talk to and chat with our customers properly.

Our staff are considered professionals, as such, only those capable of adopting a professional attitude fit in here.

what you'll receive

If you’re a great person, and you fit in here then training for driving license, or further qualifications can easily be
arranged. Your contract of employment will encourage personal development with incentives along the way.
