Transport Manager

Job Description

A very well established specialist haulage, warehousing and pallet services business has an exciting opportunity for an experienced Transport Manager to join their expanding business in the Colchester region on a full time, permanent basis. For the right candidate, there is the potential of assuming full site responsibility in the capacity of General Manager later down the line.

This is a real opportunity to shape and develop the businesses on-going success and to be part of an organisation that operates with total integrity and holds strong ethical and moral values. The focus is on doing it right first time and in working in partnership with their customer base to expand their offering through the provision of an exceptional level of customer service and the development of strategic business relationships.

The focus will be on growing a sustainable business, and would suit an ambitious, forward thinking and dynamic individual who is used to a fast paced environment, who has the confidence, drive and energy to make things happen. You will be passionate about wanting to make a difference and see this opportunity as one in which you can totally make your own.

You will hold CPC, and be commercially astute (this includes P&L performance, management of credit risk) with a focus on developing strategy. You will have proven operational expertise (KPI management, client liaison) as well as being an inspiring man-manger. Your style will be open, honest and motivational, with the ability to identify talent, nurture it and develop future leaders. Legal compliance will play a major part of your role, with consideration for all H&S implications.

This is a great role for a dynamic, and energetic logistics professional who is keen to play a huge part in developing the future direction of the company with opportunity to progress into site General Manager.

The appointment is open for immediate consideration so please send your CV without delay!
