Why would you want to work in self storage? It’s dull, right? Boring. Warehousing. Grey, dusty, cold. Sitting at a desk, waiting for something to happen all day. Nah, couldn’t possibly be anything interesting about this job. And yet… and yet… here you are, reading this. So something grabbed your imagination.
It could be that you’ve seen self storage sites popping up right, left & center and you’ve wondered about this new, fast growing industry. It could be that self storage weathered The Great Recession better than any other property sector, with barely a blip. It could be that you’ve realised that you've used self storage in the past, and that actually, it really wasn’t what you thought.
Bright. Clean. Modern. Friendly. Welcoming. Professional. Fun. Interesting. Different.
Self storage is an exciting, fast growing industry. You will deal with different people every day. No two days are the same. You’re not desk-bound, nor are you on your feet all day. You’ll enjoy seeing the surprise on clients’ faces when they too realise that self storage isn’t about dark, cold, dusty warehouses. You’ll love being part of an energetic, enthusiastic team sharing the will to win, to beat the rest, and to grow the business. You’ll feel fulfilled, each and every time you hit that rare sweet spot – making a sale while also putting a smile on someone’s face, and helping make their day just that little bit easier. It’s just a win-win situation.
Our facilities and our team have been featured on the BBC news, in documentaries, on Sky and in films. We’ve been invited to Number Ten Downing Street (twice) and won awards for a variety of things at both UK and European level. Basically, we like to try and be better than the rest. We’re a Living Wage accredited employer, the first in our industry, and as a paternalistic employer we look after our people.
If you feel you are a mature, reliable and personable individual who enjoys helping people, this could be for you. If you want to work in a team where you will have an impact, and not just be a number, then this could be for you. If you’re worried about hitting a glass ceiling in a large corporate, and want to be part of building something special, this could be for you.
If you’re interested, why not pop in and say hello? We’d love to meet you. Plus, we pay more than our competitors, and we really look after our team in a variety of different ways. Just ask them.
Attic Self Storage. More than just storage. More than just a job.
Strong written and spoken English is essential, as is a good grasp of mental arithmetic. You must be comfortable working weekends, and fully conversant with MS Outlook. No previous experience in storage necessary. Evidence of loyalty and maturity in previous employment will be sought (ie length of service, dependability, reliability). Chocolate-chip cookies & lemon drizzle cake are optional!
