Yard Supervisor

Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Yard Supervisor to join a very well established pallet repair and distribution business on a full-time, permanent basis in the Derbyshire region. This is a truly exciting time to join the company, as they continue to successfully expand their portfolio of clients.

Reporting directly into the Depot Manager, you will play a key role in supporting the management and smooth operational performance of the depot. As Yard Supervisor, you will manage your team in a manufacturing and pallet repair environment in respect of achievement of critical KPI's on a daily basis. This will be realised through highly tuned resource and planning skills and effective man-management. It is essential that you can fully engage, motivate and direct your team as your success will be measured by delivery against KPI's and customer satisfaction.

This is a high pressure, fast moving operation and would suit an ambitious, forward thinking and dynamic individual. In additional to experience within a warehouse/manufacturing related environment, you will need to show experience of productivity improvements, raw material control and general stock control. As a natural leader, you will possess excellent communication skills, have a positive, can-do attitude and enjoy finding resolution to issues that you identify as impacting on achieving business goals and objectives. You will need to demonstrate a proven track record of performance improvements (continuous improvement), have a focus on quality, H&S, risk assessments, and an ability to keep an eye on the bottom line by keeping waste to an absolute minimum. You will be used to appraising your team, rewarding and recognising positive performance, but equally managing under performance in the most appropriate way. Your management style will be firm but fair with a strong, no nonsense attitude.

You will work with attention to detail and be capable of making difficult decisions but ultimately operate with integrity, professionalism and fairness. An FLT licence would be a huge advantage.

There is genuine opportunity for career advancement with a business that has strong growth plans.
