A fantastic opportunity has arisen for a dynamic, senior logistics management professional who has operated at General Manager level, to join a hugely successful logistics business in the capacity of Head of Network. The company are specialists in freight distribution. This is a very exciting time to join the group as they continue to expand their freight solution offering. Ideally you will be located in the central belt of Scotland, (although home based), but will travel to various sites and clients 3-4 times per week.
As Head of Network (reporting directly into the Network Director), you will ultimately be responsible for the overall performance of your freight distribution network, which will include the recruitment (and exiting) of a variety of transport companies all over the UK (from smaller family run businesses to the larger transport organisations) to ensure the most efficient network coverage as possible is achieved. This performance management will include assessing and managing the service quality, efficiencies relating to a number of KPI's, as well as developing transport partner relationships so they perform at optimum capacity from a network, service offering and cost/profitability perspective.
It is essential that you are an experienced logistics professional who has operated at a senior level, and possess strong operational and commercial expertise. Overriding qualities however will be your personal integrity and strength of character and your ability to forge collaborative relationships that provide a win win situation. You will possess a natural diplomacy, yet be fully capable of securing the results that you want, through influencing in the right way.
As further growth is set to continue, this is a fantastic platform from which to further develop your career and make a very positive mark on the development of this area of the business.
