Outbound Logistics Manager
£40,000 - £60,000

It's not every day that you get to establish the logistical blueprint for an international FMCG powerhouse's brand-new 400,000+ square foot distribution centre…

But for one lucky candidate, that day is on the horizon.

If you're the type of person who thrives in efficiently getting products out of the warehouse and into the arms of your customers, we need to talk!

The business I am partnered with have seen huge growth across their portfolio in recent years, aided by a very-well tuned business model which has enabled them to remain successful during the pandemic. With a significant UK expansion currently underway, they are able to offer fantastic development opportunities for the right candidates as well as providing an excellent working culture.

Luckily for you, this business benefits from close relationships with major transport providers and utilises these relationships to enhance their supply chain. This means that you're going to need to be a strategic negotiator and relationship builder so you can get the best out of your suppliers.

You'll have a medium-sized team assisting you along the way, so once again your people-skills and leadership criteria will need to be top notch. A lot of your products will be shipped internationally within the EU - so hopefully you've had some experience on this front and you're not scared of the "B" word!

What will you need?

  • Proven experience in a logistics management role, preferably multi-channel outbound
  • FMCG background (flexible with category, as long as you can keep up with the pace!)
  • Ability to lead and inspire a team
  • Supplier management experience
  • Ideally some Brexit working experience - role will involve international supply

This role will be off the market before too long - don't miss your chance to apply!

This isn't just recruitment, it's recruitment as it should be.
