The Apprenticeship

Established in 2011, Gillian Arnold is a designer brand. With products including home wares, furnishings, jewellery and gifts, the brand is famed for its personalised feel thanks to founder Gillian’s hands-on approach to her work. To create her prints, Gillian uses cuttings of British wildflowers and plants, making the brand unique in comparison to other designer labels. Products are generally produced at the company’s production bases in the North-East England towns Darlington and Bishop Auckland. The company works alongside over 150 wholesale stockists across the UK and abroad, supplying them with goods to sell on their websites and at their premises. Products are also sold in the company’s own boutiques and on their website.

As a warehouse and logistics apprentice, you will be responsible for overseeing the dispatching of Gillian Arnold product orders that are placed, and coordinating their deliveries to the appropriate address.  When deliveries from suppliers arrive at the warehouse, you will check them over and then store them carefully in a safe and suitable place.  If there are any stock shortages or damages to stock, you will communicate with your line manager to solve the problem.  You will be involved in both the importing and exporting of goods, working alongside the production team to achieve satisfactory customer delivery dates.  During your time as an apprentice, you will become familiar with the process of stock taking and the importance of maintaining a clean and safe working environment that meets health and safety standards.
