General Manager

Job Description

A well-established haulage, warehousing and pallet distribution services business has an exciting opportunity for an experienced Transport General Manager to join their expanding business in the Leicester region on a full time, permanent basis.

This is a real opportunity to shape and develop the business's on-going success and to be part of an organisation that operates with integrity and strong ethical and moral values. The focus is on doing it right first time, and in working in partnership with the customer base to expand their offering through the provision of an exceptional level of customer service and the development of strategic business relationships.

The focus will be on growing a sustainable business, and would suit an ambitious, forward-thinking and dynamic individual who is used to a fast-paced environment, who has the confidence, drive and energy to make things happen. You will be passionate about wanting to make a difference and see this opportunity as one in which you can totally make your own. Customer engagement, and an ability to forge very professional, long term business relationships fostering an environment of trust and support is essential.

You will hold CPC, be commercially astute (this includes P&L performance) with a focus on developing strategy. You will have proven operational expertise (KPI management, client liaison) as well as being an inspiring man-manger. Your style will be open, honest and motivational, with the ability to identify talent, nurture it and develop future leaders. Pallet network service experience, cross-dock transport operations and general haulage experience will be essential. The nature of the role would suit someone hands-on who enjoys perhaps a smaller, less corporate environment.

This role is however, a great opportunity for a dynamic, and energetic logistics professional who is keen to play a key part in developing the future direction of the company.

The appointment is open for immediate consideration so please send your CV without delay!
