Job Description

A forward-thinking fulfilment, e-commerce, distribution, warehousing and storage solutions business has an exciting opportunity for an aspiring Operations Manager to join their team in the Rutland (East Midlands) region on a full time, permanent basis (days)

This is a fantastic opening for an individual who has perhaps worked previously as a Senior Warehouse Supervisor and has the ambition to develop into an Operational Management role. The ideal candidate will be dynamic and forward-thinking taking responsibility for the management of the busy depot including the Cross-Dock facility which is integral to the general transport and palletline network operations.

You will maintain very high standards of Health & Safety, and customer service is a key measure of success. You will lead and develop an experienced and dedicated team and work closely with the Transport Team to ensure the efficient and effective delivery of the transport operations.

In summary you will ideally need to possess:

  • Previous experience in Logistics / Transport / Warehousing operations.
  • Excellent communication skills
  • IT literacy and be able to run internal and customer performance KPI reports
  • Motivational skills and be a strong team player, and a developer of people
  • A conscientious and self-driven approach
  • Continuous improvement skills and not be afraid to challenge existing working practices
  • Working knowledge of handling hazardous goods
  • The capacity to make a positive contribution in updating and implementing Safe Systems of Work

Whilst the above qualities are important, the client is equally committed to training and developing their staff, so although these skills / attributes are desirable the 'right fit' of person will be a significant factor in the appointment and success of the individual.

For immediate consideration send your CV without delay!
