It is essential that you have man-management/supervisory experience and understand the pressures and challenges within a production / pick and pack environment as you will be responsible for the management of a team of Production Executives in the production of customer orders.

You will need to demonstrate exceptional leadership qualities in directing your team and in gaining their commitment to achieving certain KPI's. It is essential that you have a motivational and engaging style, an ability to get the very best out of each individual and can set the standard for the rest of the team in terms of what excellence looks like. You will need to be "hands-on" in nature, and prepared to pitch in with your team when required.

Your duties will include performing quality assurance checks as per client SLA's, the production of daily and weekly QA reports, carrying out audits to ensure 100% compliance, team delegation, performance management and individual team training plans, updating and maintaining skills matrices and adherence to all H&S considerations. It is essential that you possess excellent communication skills as you will need to liaise with all relevant members of the Client Services team to keep them informed of any issues affecting their accounts.

Ideally you will hold FLT licences, but an attitude of wanting to make a difference and operating with an enthusiastic, motivational manner will be essential.

There are very good prospects for the right individual. The environment can be pressured, but the personnel are friendly and supportive.

For immediate consideration, send your CV without delay!
