You will have developed your career within a warehouse environment previously and possess excellent man-management/supervisory skills. It will suit an individual who is looking to make a mark for themselves and drive this already successful business to the next stage of its growth.

It is a KPI performance driven environment with wider team responsibility for c100 staff. You will need to fully understand process, productivity and quality control. As this is a highly operational role, you will constantly be looking at ways to increase productivity, introduce change and manage stringent KPI targets and SLA agreements to exceed expectations. In addition to the provision of key metrics into the Board, you will promote the Investors In People Standard, and the ISO accreditations.
