A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an Assistant Transport Manager to take responsibility for the night shift and join a hugely successful logistics business on a full time permanent basis. You will join a busy, fast paced transport department in Worksop working a 4 on 4 off night shift pattern.
This is an exceptional opportunity to join the largest British logistics businesses. You will provide essential support in managing the transport department including the management of the driving team. It is essential that you come from come from a transport environment previously and can handle pressure whilst maintaining a level head and a calming influence on your co-workers.
The role would suit an aspiring transport professional who is looking to develop their career (perhaps you will have been a Transport Supervisor or Transport Team Leader previously) and are looking for that next key career step. Ideally you will have CPC (or the commitment to obtaining this). Duties will extend to all H&S considerations, the management and the reporting of key KPI information on a daily basis to the Transport Manager and involvement with HR in the respect of driver one to one's, holiday allocations, providing and reviewing objectives for the team and individuals, managing the daily plan and the identification of driver training plans among others.
A sense of humour will be essential as will a positive, "can-do" attitude. Patience, diplomacy and tact when dealing with drivers (especially those whose first language is not English will be required) but equally important will be the strength of conviction in your own abilities to get the job done. A confident, yet humble approach with exceptional communications skills and an ability to convey your message in a clear, concise manner is essential.
This is an exciting time to join the organisation and is a genuine opportunity to make a positive career step. For immediate consideration, send your CV without delay!
