Freight Forwarder

Job Description

A great opportunity has arisen for an experienced Freight Forwarder to join a small, friendly dynamic team in Kettering. Ideally you will demonstrate experience across multimodal forms of transport to include road, air and sea. This is a full time, permanent role and is a result of company expansion and continued growth.

The role would suit an individual who has previously worked as a Freight Forwarder or has experience with international transport and is looking to further develop their career within a transport related environment.

It is important that you can demonstrate an ability to build positive, professional relationships with a range of customers and internal and external stakeholders, quickly understand the commercial implications of maximising loads and ensure that goods are shipped with maximum efficiency and profitability. Commercial acumen will be required in respect of cost management. in addition to providing an exceptional level of customer service and developing ongoing relationships, you will receive and generate quotations, identify and communicate risks to the Freight Director yet be initiative led in the provision of solutions to problems.

It would be an advantage if you have some awareness of customs, but a solid "nuts and bolts" understanding of the freight forwarding industry will be required. The role would suit an enthusiastic, friendly personable individual with a positive can-do attitude and an ability to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in! You must be IT literate with previous experience in Microsoft Office.

This is an exciting time to join the organisation and it is a genuine opportunity to make a positive career step.

For immediate consideration send your CV without delay!
