Established in 1996 by Managing Director Geoff Kerly, KEW Electrical is an Independent Electrical Wholesaler with a network of 26 branches predominantly in the South of England, plus Belfast covering Northern Ireland and Gloucester.

Experience runs throughout the company, led by a board of directors each with over 30 years of electrical wholesaling experience. This is mirrored throughout KEW with the majority of branch employees having spent years in the industry.

Independence allows KEW to be entrepreneurial and not be tied down by rigid ‘large company’ policies. This permits branches to have a large local stock holding of major suppliers across the branch network, resulting in same day stock availability company wide. Furthermore, these branches are supported by our central distribution centre which delivers to the branch network on a same or next day basis.

To ensure competitive pricing, KEW is a key member of FEGIME, one of Europe’s leading electrical buying groups.

This simple philosophy of same day stock availability, handled by experienced, customer focused staff has resulted in KEW’s success story as one of the UK’s fastest growing independent wholesalers.

After full training your responsibilities will include:

  • Managing stock in and out (to external clients)
  • Picking and packing
  • Store transfers and stock control
  • Goods in/goods out
  • Maintaining a tidy and organised warehouse
  • Completing the paperwork
  • Trade counter
  • Face-to-face customer interaction will also be required by working on the sales counter on occasion
  • There may also be a necessity to handle calls to and from other branches

This is an exciting progression role where you will start in the Warehouse and then move into other areas of the business.

As an Apprentice EDA Apprenticeships Plus will employ the successful candidate on behalf of the Branch. If you are looking for a job and qualification that will provide you with a valuable foundation for your future, then this is the role.
