Reporting directly into the Regional Operations Manager, this opening requires an experienced Depot Manager who is looking to further develop their career within the logistics sector.

It would suit an individual that not only has experience within a warehousing, logistics and distribution environment, but is a strong but fair man-manger.
The successful candidate will hold IOSH qualification, be operationally very strong and have a commercial head on their shoulders as you will also be expected to take a critical look at the operation and implement new systems and procedures as you see fit (or evaluate those already in place) to make the site as efficient as it can be. In addition, your man-management style will be one of encouragement, development and leadership in bringing the team together to work as a goal focused, cohesive unit.
You will come with fresh ideas on how to effectively run the depot and be a keen advocate of continuous improvement as well as being a concise and dedicated leader. Naturally, Health and Safety will play a key part your role and you will be responsible for managing compliance including processes and procedures and promoting Health and Safety, as a priority within the operation.
You will be inquisitive, pro-active, use your initiative and have a strength of character to work in a fast paced, pressured environment. Flexibility and being very hands-on to pitch in when appropriate will be required. It would suit a candidate who is a visible, integral part of the team. It would NOT suit someone that isn't prepared to lead by example.
