Job Description

Role First Line Manager / FLM

Location London

Salary up to £30K, plus pension, over time, staff discounts, 25 days holiday

Ref IE 59944

A hugely successful leading UK parcel delivery business has a fantastic opportunity for experienced First Line Managers / FLM to join their growing business at one of their key sites in the London region on a full time permanent basis. This is truly an exciting role and a chance to join the business at a key stage of their on-going development. There are two vacancies, which require flexibility to cover any 5 of 7 (one role is offered on the early shift, the other position on back shift)

Reporting directly into the Site Manager, you will provide essential support in managing your team of personnel to include "man-in-van" operations, a variety of couriers and on-site warehouse and admin teams. It is a very fast paced, reactive environment in which you will be expected to juggle multiple priorities.

Key to your success will be in your man-management style; the role would suit a strong individual who has passion, drive and enthusiasm to assist in shaping the development of the Depot. You will be a natural people person, a team motivator, lead from the front and be capable of giving direction. You will communicate clearly, engage with the team and have an open and honest style and these are the qualities you will instil among your team. Firm but fair, you will be resilient and be highly tenacious in your approach.

As an individual, you will ideally come from a fast paced parcel delivery environment and/or demonstrate a strong 3PL/logistics background. You will have a keen eye on continuous improvement initiatives with focus on productivity, process flows and SOP's, efficiencies, client engagement and H&S. It will suit an assertive, pro-active and dynamic manager with strong communication, planning and influencing skills, highly customer centric with a passion to deliver.

An excellent package is available with career opportunity to develop into further senior management.

For immediate consideration send your CV without delay!
