Midsummer Energy

Milton, Cambridge
£19,000 - £23,000 depending on experience

Paid • Full Time • Permanent


Sectors: carbon, climate & energy

Closing date: Not specified, apply soon!

We're looking for an energetic and organised warehouse operator to join our team. If you're hard working, organised, good at getting things done and would like an opportunity to join a growing company, we'd love to hear from you.

The Role

You will be working in our warehouse, processing a wide variety of orders from start to finish. We sell primarily to trade customers, and orders vary from single-item packages sent out by courier to commercial PV systems with lorry loads of solar panels and associated mounting systems.

Working under the warehouse manager, you'll be responsible for processing the day's orders: picking, checking and packing them, booking them on for dispatch and ensuring they are labelled and loaded correctly.

You will also help to keep an eye on stock levels, unload, check and put away inbound goods, and help keep the warehouse tidy and running smoothly.

This is a full time role at our premises in Milton near Cambridge. 

About Us

Midsummer Energy specialises in solar PV systems. The bulk of our turnover is in distributing complete solar PV kits, including solar panels, inverters, mounting systems and electrical components, to a network of installation customers. We also sell smaller PV systems for off-grid applications direct to retail customers, and we have developed our own software product for designing PV systems, available online at easy-pv.co.uk.

We’ve grown significantly from humble beginnings - our first storeroom was the front room of a narrowboat, and we’ve outgrown five warehouses since, and opened a subsidiary in Ireland.

We're passionate about the environment, and we've gained a reputation for a helpful and open approach to business. The office is a friendly, dynamic and informal place to work.

What you'll get:

  • A friendly and fast-paced work environment alongside a great team
  • £19k-23k depending on experience. The Company also operates a discretionary profit-share scheme for long serving employees, which can add significantly to basic salary.
  • 25 days holiday plus Bank Holidays
  • A varied daily work life, and insight into all the workings of a small business
  • Enrolment in the company pension scheme

The ideal candidate

You enjoy a challenge, and thrive in a fast-paced environment. You have impeccable attention to detail, and enjoy a role that's often physically demanding. You enjoy a dynamic work atmosphere, and have a friendly and easy-going manner with co-workers and customers. You're happy to get involved with whatever needs doing, and eager to be part of helping a small company grow.

We’re particularly interested in applicants with prior experience of warehouse work, or with previous experience with solar PV. But these are not essential – initiative, enthusiasm and the right attitude are more important.
