Transport Operations and Warehouse Manager

Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Transport Operations and Warehouse Manager to join a leading haulage and warehouse businesses on a full time, permanent basis in the Milton Keynes area. This is a Mon to Fri days position, with a one in four Saturday morning required. The business specialises in general/heavy haulage, warehousing and storage and pallet collection and delivery services, whom for the past two years, has experienced significant growth.

Directly reporting into the General Manager, you will be responsible for leading the transport operations team ensuring that daily operational objectives are achieved and that the team achieves their performance targets. It is very much about identifying areas of continuous improvement, always with a focus on the customer.

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 pallet distribution network, as well as managing your team of drivers and warehouse personnel. You will take responsibility for KPI management, H&S and all personnel related matters with regards to the teams' progress, personal development, training requirements, appraisals and disciplinary.

A pallet network background would be an advantage, (but not essential), however what is a requirement is a very flexible approach, passion for the job and the people with whom you work, someone with fire in their belly, who cares about delivering on objectives and brings the team with them. A natural ability to forward plan, anticipate bottle necks and to have a plan of action in place to ensure a smooth running operation is essential. You will also possess sound transport legislation knowledge.

The rewards and opportunity to make your mark in a forward thinking organisation are very genuine. For immediate consideration send your CV without delay!
