This is a very successful, profitable e-commerce retailer that has grown over recent years because of a strong multi-channel sales strategy and judicious investment in its estate.
Because of this growth, and its on-going ambition, this is a newly created position to manage multiple distribute centres across the southern half of the UK. These centres distribute directly to customers, and operate very high levels of service in a time critical environment.
You will manage a large operational budget, and play a key role in companywide projects across network development, introduction of technology, process optimisation and people engagement.
Your background will be in logistics, and industries could include third-party, food, e-commerce, parcels or similar. You must have exposure to multi-site management. Specific industry knowledge is not important, but you will need to show that you are a forwarding, contemporary leader.
A high standard of education is important, and it is very likely that will have a good first degree.
There is a clear success plan for this person, and your career will still be evolving as you grow into this role. You will be provided with a very level of support and coaching, but also be encouraged to develop you own ideas and put your own personality into the operation.
