Operations Development Manager - Distribution
Our client, the in-house supply chain of a major retail brand, is looking to appoint an Operations Development Manager in one of its main distribution facilities. Despatching 1.5 million items per month across 20,000 SKU’s and guaranteeing next day delivery to retail stores, this is a finely tuned pick and pack operation which requires tight control and maximum efficiency. Customer service is the all encompassing passion of this organisation which is reflected in all the key measurables in its supply chain.
Reporting to the General Manager of the facility, this is a wide-reaching role at the heart of the business. You will have functional responsibility for day-to-day warehouse operations and inventory management, leading and managing a team to deliver excellent customer service against ever more demanding KPIs. However, the wider remit is the development of the whole operation to create a truly flexible, lean, robust and dynamic distribution facility – giving the role a focus on areas such as system and process development, project management, continuous improvement and new product introduction.
You will have a demonstrable track record of success in a high-volume fast-paced distribution environment, with project management experience and exposure to warehouse management systems. You will be an effective leader and communicator, with strong quantitative and analytical skills, and have good commercial acumen and financial understanding.
This is an exciting opportunity for an individual aspiring to a future in general management. The team you will be joining is focussed, driven and successful and you will need to match their enthusiasm, commitment and ‘can-do’ attitude. Above all else you must be driven by a vision to create a world class distribution facility with an embedded customer service ethos.
The remuneration on offer will reflect the level of the candidate appointed.
