New Employer Impressed with Applications

Europa Warehouse which is opening a NEW state-of-the-art £60m facility at Midlands Logistics Park in Corby, has been impressed with the calibre of local recruits for its new site, which opens shortly. 

 

The award-winning company launched a recruitment drive in March needing 120 new recruits to join its new facility at Midlands Logistics Park, to start in June.  Despite the worldwide pandemic Europa’s new site is on schedule and the recruitment is almost complete.

 

Europa Worldwide Group is an ambitious independent logistics operator with six divisions – Europa Road, Europa Air & Sea, Europa Showfreight, Europa Warehouse, Europa Contact Centre and Continental Cargo Carriers. The new Corby site will become Europa’s largest and most high-tech warehouse facility in the UK. 

 

Europa Worldwide recruited for roles as Warehouse Operatives, Forklift Drivers, Warehouse Team Leaders, Warehouse Trainer, Warehouse Shift Managers, Warehouse Supervisors and Warehouse Administrators for its new 715,000 sq. ft site.

 

Vanita Dass-Puri, Group Talent Acquisition Manager at Europa Worldwide Group, is leading the recruitment drive.  Vanita commented: “We had over 500 applications for the roles and we have been delighted with the calibre of applicants.   It has been a challenging time for everyone, but despite Covid-19 we’ve managed to host virtual interviews as well as doing visits to the site – all safely with social distancing.”

 

She added, “We were prepared for the challenge to find a large number of new employees who meet the role requirements and fit with our values, however we have been very impressed with the calibre of candidates we have now employed, and look forward to having them join our team.”

 

Europa is still looking for Team Leaders and Warehouse Operatives, so it’s not too late to apply, if interested, CV’s should be sent to corby@europa-worldwide.com

 

Europa has been regularly sharing drone footage of construction of the new Europa warehouse which will be one of the UKs largest and most advanced 3PL warehouses in the country.

 

Midlands Logistics Park in Corby has already created 2,200 local jobs since 2015.  Built on the site of a former British Steel quarry and latterly Stanion Plantation, Midlands Logistics Park covers 150 acres.

 

Europa Warehouse already operates award-winning warehouse sites in Dartford and Birmingham. This new facility is Europa’s largest investment to date and will double Europa Warehouse’s logistics capacity.

 

This is the latest investment in Europa’s logistics operation following strong results by the award-winning team. Europa Warehouse delivers a cost-effective solution offering a range of value-added capabilities including e-commerce fulfilment and the company already supports a wide range of leading blue-chip clients and this new facility will enable it to enhance its services significantly.
