Their largest, busiest Distribution Centre is in Centurion, and spans over 86,000sm.

To be considered for this demanding role you will have at least 5 years’ experience running a technical building facility, combined with a flexible attitude and nature as the DC services a retail environment and therefore operates 24/7.
