This opportunity can offer you that platform from which to spring board your career, and provide both personal and professional advancement for those with drive and ambition and who really want it.

This is a very fast moving, hands-on role which would suit an individual who has a track record of success in a similar fast paced environment who, as second nature, maintains very high standards, enjoys instilling a sense of pride and professionalism within their team and who has a real focus on H&S. In addition you will lead and control compliance and overall performance of the operation demonstrating in-depth knowledge in the areas of legislation, productivity, quality and service in accordance with O licence obligations. Sound commercial acumen is essential as a thorough understanding of how each element in the transport environment drives cost and profit will be required.

Excellent communication and organisational skills are essential as are excellent people/man management skills (and CPC) as you will deal with all personnel related issues (recruitment, appraisals, grievance, disciplinary and ensuring that the appropriate level of training is carried out within the transport team). Leadership, a can-do attitude and an energetic and enthusiastic approach to achieving business objectives are qualities for which the client holds in high regard.
