Welcome to jd Sports

Since 2019, PROMAN has been a trusted partner of JD Sports at their distribution centre in Rochdale. We are proud to recruit on behalf of one of the world's largest fashion and sportswear companies, and have several fantastic roles available for trainees through to experienced warehouse staff. Find out what it's like to work in one of the UK's largest distribution centres and the career opportunities it presents.

working at jd sports

The distribution centre at Kingsway is a 24/7, 364 day a year operation, so its most important asset is its people! We're looking for applicants from all walks of life to make sure JD Sports' online customers receive their orders on-time and the retail stores have plenty of stock available for keen shoppers. 

Working in the warehouse requires you to work well as part of a large team, whilst having a keen eye for detail. You will be responsible for sorting stock, packing small and large orders, picking, labelling and more! If you haven't done some of these duties before then don't worry - there is plenty of training and development available to make sure you can perform to the best of your abilities. JD Sports have an excellent track record of taking agency workers onto permanent contracts, with many colleagues going on to develop into senior positions within the warehouse. 

culture and values

The culture and values at JD Sports is one of fun, energy and hard-work. The Distribution Centre is a fast-moving environment and operates all year round, so those who come with plenty of energy and enthusiasm often excel here.

JD Sports and PROMAN work hard to engage with agency and permanent workers, which is reflected in our monthly engagement activities. This is often educational and interactive, with the highlight of the year being Logistics Day which happens every summer. 

Our values of being People Focused, Ethical, Winning Mindset, Consistent and Credible are mirrored by JD Sports. Both PROMAN and JD Sports are customer-centric in our approach, and invest in innovation, which has led to a successful and long-term relationship.
