Document Logistix is a relatively small company (approx. 35 employees in Milton Keynes) and although people have specific roles they have opportunity to influence and work with other aspects of the business.

Main tasks and responsibilities:
  • Familiarisation with the DLX Product range and functionality

  • Maintain timely and accurate records of testing results
  • Contribute to improving working practices/efficiencies of the team

Things to consider

Document Logistix invests in its staff and has good staff retention, with opportunities for growth within the organisation. Many staff have been with the company for 10+ years, some since its inception.
