Career Profile: Stock Clerk

This is an administrative career.

The work of a Stock Clerk involves receiving, checking, unpacking, storing and tracking stocks and merchandises. The job requires keeping records of inventories going out and coming into the storage place. Much time may be spent arranging, tagging and organising these inventories and merchandises.

The job may also require one to replenish stocks displayed in a shop or store.

Training wise, a fresh stock clerk may require a short-term on-the-job training. Quality-wise, a stock clerk should have some knowledge of basic mathematics and recording skill. Ability to communicate and relate well with others are also advantageous.

Typically, Stock Clerks work in stores, factories or warehouses where their work is required.
