Ocean Import Operator

Job Description

A highly dynamic, progressive and well respected freight service provider operating across sea, air and road, has a unique opportunity for an Ocean Import Manager to join their business at a key stage of their growth. This is a critical appointment for the organisation and a fantastic opportunity for an experienced manager with technical freight forwarding experience to really drive the growth of the department. The position is based at the client's state of the art facility in the West Midlands.

It is essential that you are a pro-active driver of the businesses in which you have worked previously, and are highly adept at relationship building, not only with your existing client base, but also with internal stake holders of the business. You will understand the detail of your clients' requirements, offering solutions based around their exacting needs within the global supply chain solutions environment. This will be backed up by sound operational experience, and knowledge of shipping lines and liaison with them.

It is also important that you are a skilled man-manager as you will be responsible for your team of 12, their own personal and professional development (up-skilling and succession planning) and the management of business KPI's for the team.

You will be commercially astute, possess exceptional planning skills and have a clear vision of where you want to take the department. Your success will not only be measured in terms of how the team develops but also how you grow the business financially. Experience with change management from the perspective of the implementation of systems and procedures will be a huge advantage.

This is truly a great business to join that has shown consistent year on year growth and with exciting future plans within the global supply chain solutions sector, this is a fantastic time to take that next career step.
