I'm looking for a high-quality Logistics Operations Manager who can drive productivity and shift KPIs for a dynamic distribution and assembly logistics business based at their site near Nottingham…

The culture of the organisation requires you to be hands-on and action-oriented - you will need to be the sort of leader that makes things happen! While responsible for a significant sized warehouse you will be required to be present on the shop floor to drive daily activity levels. They are a leading distribution business that assembles onsite their final product before despatching to their end service provider and the successful candidate will earn a competitive salary c£60,000 with car or car allowance plus additional benefits…

You will be tasked with analysing data and using it to drive performance, delegating tasks effectively when required. You will communicate on performance issues and identify the training required, personally coaching and developing your team in order to improve performance. While you will be joining a UK wide business, the culture is one of accountability - you will have some freedom to deliver as you see fit but will be accountable for performance. As a result, the business has exceptional retention rates and service records and a great working culture.

The new Logistics Operations Manager will report directly to the Head of Operations onsite and will be part of implementing site strategy, the site is a dynamic fast-moving FMCG distribution environment where the key responsibilities will be to engage with your team to drive shift productivity. There is definite career progression for the right candidate as the company have a proven record of promoting from within, they have worked very hard on producing a great culture onsite where everyone is pulling in the same direction.

A candidate with experience within FMCG distribution but with an emphasis on sectors where assembly of the product takes place onsite could transition nicely into this role although good people managers from fast moving warehouse environments will also be considered, as with most distribution environments understanding fluctuating volumes will be paramount. Having a six sigma (green belt) qualification would be preferable but not essential…

Ideally you will have experience within a pressurised, fast paced and challenging warehouse environments. Based near Nottingham you will be paid a competitive salary c£60,000 with a car or car allowance available also, the role will suit a self-starter who is team driven and can communicate at all levels.
