Warehouse / Logistics Manager
£25k to £27k + good benefits package
With a history in excess of 165 years, my client has been based in Nottingham and has sold and delivered their products across the UK and across the world.
Due to the expansion of their on-line sales and their confidence for the bar / restaurant / wedding sector, they are now looking to bring in a Warehouse / Logistics Manager who is familiar with working in a fast-paced and tight-knit team, and who can help continue this impressive growth.
This position involves working for a small but successful business, where you'll be involved in a variety of activities. Even the MD has been known to help unload a lorry or answer the phone and speak to customers and suppliers. So a real hands on attitude, and willingness to do what needs doing, really runs through the DNA of the company.
As already said, this is a very varied and hands-on role. Shown below are some of the typical duties, but you'll be expected to lead from the front, and be responsible for developing your own team as the business continues to grow.
Direct, optimise and coordinate full order cycle, from order receipt to dispatch.
