Regatta Distribution Centre to Create 60 Jobs in Ringaskiddy
Writes Ciaran Dineen
Regatta Ireland are opening a new distribution centre in Ringaskiddy and are currently in the process of hiring up to 60 new staff with people living in the Carrigaline-Ringaskiddy area currently being targeted for employment.
In what has been described as an “exciting new project”, potential candidates will have the opportunity to take part in an assessment centre in Carrigaline next week on Monday 11th, Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th for people who may be interested in applying.
This is the latest boost in the local area, with the creation of jobs becoming a regular feature of late, particularly in Ringaskiddy.
The jobs on offer are for Permanent roles, including multiple Warehouse Operative positions, with two shifts available to apply for;: 06.00am-2.00pm (€13 per hour) 2.00pm-10.00pm (€14.95 per hour). No previous experience is required and Full training on Mechanical Handling Equipment (e.g forklifts) will be provided.
The Warehouse Operatives will be part of a team fulfilling customer orders, ensuring goods are dispatched efficiently, in full, on time, and are well presented. This will include receipt of goods, stock replenishment, pick, consolidation, pack, dispatch, returns and specific customer requirements.
Regatta will be aiming to dispatch approximately 2 million units worth of product from the site in Ringaskiddy, with potential further opportunities to expand operations given the close proximity to the harbour, which will become the official Port of Cork in the coming years.
The main source of distribution from the clothing company currently comes from their headquarters in the UK, but due to the impact of Brexit, they have been keen to expand their warehouse centres into the EU.
The assessment is being handled by HR and Recruitment company, Collins McNicholas, with those interested in attending the assessment next week required to arrange a slot by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org, where CV’s should also be attached.
So far it would appear that there is considerable local interest in the roles, with assessment slots filling up fast for next week. Interested candidates are therefore advised to book their place as soon as possible.
