£150,000 pa + full package
As one of the UK’s largest retailers with a comprehensive network of stores and a compelling customer proposition, this company has continued to exceed market expectations and is setting new standards of customer service. The business has a wide range of product streams and supplies across all consumer channels, including a very strong dot.com operation.
In this critical role, you will report directly to the board and have full accountability for the entire logistics estate, covering all Distribution Centres and the complete transport network along with corresponding responsibility for the operating budget of over £250m. In addition to managing a highly complex day-to-day operation, you will also orchestrate a complete review of the physical distribution operation, and develop a long- term strategy for step change and continuous improvement. This will be led by the need for greater network capacity, a new operating model and a continual search for cost reduction.
Your background will be in large-scale multi-site operations, in a fast-paced, highly seasonal environment. This could be with a retailer, a large 3PL, wholesaler or potentially a manufacturing business. More important is your ability to lead and connect with a large group of loyal, committed staff as well as leading a programme of Continuous Improvement.
There will be a high degree of travel with the role, so flexibility is important.
