Our new Biggleswade Depot is set to open in January 2022. Not only will the depot be one of the greenest in the country – running entirely on renewable energy – but it’ll also provide a positive working environment that’s committed to colleague wellbeing.

We’ll be recruiting over 1,000 colleagues to work at Biggleswade, and we want it to be a workplace they’re truly proud of.

What will it be like working at Biggleswade?

Co-op is a flexible employer and making sure our colleagues have shifts that fit around their life is really important. As we launch, we’ll be able to provide shifts that fit around everyone.

Colleague wellbeing is also important too, so we want to provide our colleagues with fantastic working conditions, which is reflected in the site’s design. There will be facilities focused on your wellbeing such as:

  • Outdoor areas for people to switch off in
  • Wellbeing rooms
  • Gender-neutral toilets
  • Unisex locker areas
  • Prayer and spiritual areas
  • Food and drink vending options

What’s more, we’re looking to have a best-in-class restaurant for our colleagues to use, with a restaurant provider which will offer a wide range of choice that’ll be affordable.

Building a career in Logistics

We want everyone to know that this isn’t just a job. We want colleagues to feel supported in their role and their development at the Co-op. So, whether you come in as a Warehouse Op, a Driver or in a management role, there will be plenty of opportunity throughout the depot to develop and progress your career.
