Warehouse jobs going at airport freight hub


DHL is looking to fill more than 40 warehousin­g vacancies at its East Midlands Airport distributi­on centre – offering salaries of up to £43,000 a year.

The internatio­nal courier service runs a large freight operation out of the Leicesters­hire air hub, with one of its largest UK warehouses located nearby.

It is looking for people to join its ranks in a wide range of roles, including warehouse operatives and shift managers.

Employee benefits include flexible working, retail discounts, medical cover and a 25-day holiday entitlemen­t.

The job search website states that full-time warehouse workers at the Castle Donington distributi­on site earn a minimum of £19,500 a year.

DHL is leasing premises at Segro Logistics Park East Midlands Gateway, in a deal struck last year that will last until 2030.

The firm has said it is looking to create more than 1,000 jobs for people across Leicesters­hire and the wider East Midlands region in the next few years.

Despite the East Midlands Gateway developmen­t yet to be completed, the giant business park is already home to several large names in the logistics world.

They include XPO Logistics, Amazon, Very, Kuehne and Nagel.

The park is situated next to the airport and Junction 23a of the M1. There remain a number of vacant plots which will help to boost the number of jobs at the park towards 7,000 once constructi­on is complete.

It also boasts an onsite rail freight terminal serving the UK’s large sea ports and the Channel Tunnel freight operation.
