Becoming a Devanner

Since Oak Tree was formed in 2002 we have never stopped growing so we are always looking for new people to join our team.

If you are self-motivated, enjoy hard physical work and are a team player, Oak Tree could be the place for you.

What's the job?

Devanning is the term for unloading product from containers. Oak Tree has contracts with many major logistics and freight companies to do this work.

The work involves getting in with a team mate and working together to hand unload the product onto pallets, shrink wrapping and fork-lifting the product, and completing the job  as fast as possible. Clients book through our innovative Oaktree app which sends a notification straight to our devanners.

We also load containers and have some contracts to provide casual labour and forklift drivers.

What's the pay like?

You'll be paid at a fixed rate per container which varies depending on container size.

What skills do I need?

  • Physical Strength

  • Reliability

  • Neatness and Accuracy

  • Attention to detail

  • A forklift license is helpful but not required


The most valuable asset you can have is reliability - the ability to arrive at work on time is also essential!

What else do I need?

You'll need steel capped boots and your own transport to get to and from work.
