A recruitment drive is being held later this month to find local staff to fill up to 50 new jobs created by the arrival of the Ocado delivery depot in the borough.
They will take place at Barking Learning Centre on October 29 and 31. Both are part of the company’s commitment with Barking and Dagenham Council to recruit from the local area.
Ocado won planning permission to convert the former First Group bus depot in Chequers Lane, Dagenham, into a warehouse for local deliveries. It will open in January next year.
Staff are being recruited for the Customer Delivery Team. The first event will be for residents who have been unemployed for a year or longer.
Each will have a five-minute interview and if successful will progress straight to an interview with the manager, skipping two stages in the application process. It comes off the back of Ocado’s guarantee to offer 50 interviews to the long-term unemployed.
The second event will be for general recruitment for Barking and Dagenham residents. A presentation on the available vacancies will be given along with their company benefits. A total of five sessions will be held with the opportunity to ask questions.
Residents must book beforehand to attend either event. Visit ocado.com for more.
