Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Logistics and Transport Manager to join a successful, independent logistics and warehousing business on a full time, permanent basis in the Colchester area (Your remit will cover three locations in the local vicinity). This is a Mon to Fri position and it is an exceptional opportunity for you to make your mark, and really drive the success of this start-up operation as it continues to grow.

Directly reporting into the Managing Director, you will be responsible for leading the transport operations team ensuring that daily operational objectives are achieved as well as identifying areas of continuous improvement, always with a focus on the customer. You will manage and plan both inbound and out bound deliveries (including customer collections), take full accountability of the 2-man delivery service ensuring that the last mile customer experience exceeds the customer's expectations and develop an ongoing rigorous method of continuous carrier assessment. In addition, you will possess up to date knowledge of transport regulations and take on board the legal compliance of the Transport fleet.

It is essential that you possess excellent communication and organisational skills as the role would suit an individual who has an inclusive man-management style - encouraging and supportive, yet firm when required. You will liaise closely with customers, stakeholders and key contacts within the business, as well as managing your team of drivers. You will take responsibility for KPI management, H&S and all personnel related matters. You will require CPC International as you will assume O licence responsibilities.

This is a hands-on position, where you will set the bar and lead the team towards operational excellence - this is a blank canvass onto which you can make the role your own.

For immediate consideration, send your CV without delay!
