About The Larder West Lothian

The Larder West Lothian is an exciting, fast growing social enterprise serving food from community settings and training those furthest from the job market for the hospitality sector.

The Larder operates 4 cafes across West Lothian where we provide access to good quality food at affordable prices for the whole community whilst providing hospitality training places for schools and Skills Development Scotland.

A vacancy has arisen for the post of Warehouse Operative/Driver to help support the drive for consistency of quality and fantastic customer experiences across all sites.

You will get to know your customers and be passionate and knowledgeable about our products and services.

For insurance purposes you will have to be over 21 years of age with a clean UK driving license.

Key Tasks & Responsibilities
