Main warehouse (Loddiswell, Devon)
Working pattern: 5-6 hours per day, 4-5 days per week (for example, 9.30am-3pm Tuesday-Friday).
We can be flexible with regards to the hours and days of the week that you’re available to work, though there will need to be some overlap with other colleagues for efficiency and fairness. Please specify your ideal working pattern when you apply for the role.

Reporting to: Operations Manager

We’re looking for two Stock Coordinators to manage all goods coming in and out of our brand new warehouse, distributing items between our seven stores, storing replenishment stock until it’s ready to be sent to the shop floor and maintaining an orderly archive. You’ll also work closely with our Store Managers, Commercial Team and E-Commerce team to ensure that all sales channels are well stocked with new and relevant products at all times, and with our Production & Buying team on quality control.


Key objectives in this role include:

  • Implementing and maintaining a storage and archiving system at the warehouse so that it’s ship-shape and has accurate inventory on-hand at all times
  • Receiving and ‘checking in’ new deliveries via our online warehouse management system (WMS)
  • Quality checking new stock with guidance from our Production & Buying team
  • Printing and attaching barcode labels and swing tags
  • Dividing stock between our seven stores and head office as needed, and setting up the relevant ‘transfers’ on the WMS
  • Making in-person stock deliveries to our local stores (those within a 10-mile radius) and booking couriers for stores that are further afield
  • Overseeing the storage and distribution of brand materials/sundries, e.g. shopping bags and tissue paper
  • Other warehouse/operational related duties as delegated by the Operations Manager.

    This role is imperative to the smooth running and success of Busby & Fox, as our business scales and we look to operate in ever-more streamlined and sustainable ways. It’s a great position for someone looking for a busy and fulfilling role, but which doesn’t require a daily 8-hour commitment (or that can be carried out within school hours). There’s also great potential for development within the team; as the business grows, so will our warehouse team.


We’d like to hear from you if you’re:

  • Hard working, with a positive, roll-up-your-sleeves attitude
  • As happy working alone as you are within a small team
  • Able to think on your feet and prioritise tasks as they arise
  • Happy being on your feet for much of the day, and lifting and moving medium-weight boxes
  • Comfortable working with computers/technology (specific experience isn’t necessary as training will be provided on the job)
  • A clear and open communicator.
