ODD - Operations & Warehouse Lead (Full-time)

The role:

We are looking for an energetic, organised and personable Operations & Warehouse Lead to help manage ODD’s warehouse operations, product logistics and customer deliveries. Reporting into Minnie, our Sales and Operations Director, you will be hands-on from day one, as a key member of our (very!) small team.

ODD manages all of its customer deliveries in-house, so you will be responsible for ensuring that customers receive products on time and without faults. The role is based in ODD’s warehouse and headquarters in Oxfordshire, with a considerable amount of time spent on the road and daily interaction with ODD’s customers. You will therefore be a key representative of the ODD brand and help to maintain our reputation of exceptional, personalised customer service.

This is a great opportunity to gain experience in a small, growing business and to take on considerable responsibility from the get-go. The role has potential, for the right person, to progress to Operations Manager and ultimately to oversee all of ODD’s logistics, warehouse and product operations.

About ODD

ODD is best known for our ‘Old Rocker’, a fully upholstered swinging garden sofa, designed and made in the UK, and we are slowly expanding our furniture and fabrics range. Our rockers are handmade to order in limited runs by our team in England, each is completely unique, and offers unrivalled luxury and comfort for garden-dwelling.

As our name might suggest, we’re not a typical company. We’re family-run and driven by delivering exceptional products and service, rather than chasing profits. If a 9-to-5 desk job working for the man isn’t for you, but varied and stimulating work on your feet surrounded by lovely people and beautiful products is, then we’d love to hear from you.


● Managing ODD customer orders and deliveries, as well as product logistics

● Liaising with and collecting from the ODD team based near Derby

● Supporting the Sales and Operations Director on new business initiatives, projects and events


● Full-time position based in Chalgrove, Oxfordshire, with willingness and ability to drive nationwide (but no overnight stays required)

● Full, clean UK driving licence held for 2+ years

Skills & Attributes:

● Good communicator who can form and maintain relationships with suppliers and partners, as well as to represent ODD in a customer-facing capacity

● Excellent attention to detail and time management

● Self-motivated to get on with tasks without supervision and be proactive in suggesting ways to improve ODD’s operational processes

● Willingness to spend time in the ODD van delivering and installing garden furniture across England & Wales during busy sales periods

● Hands-on ‘doer’ adept at solving practical problem, with the ability to work with standard tools and to lift heavy items
