Are you looking to join a major player in the Logistics / Distribution arena where you can further shape your career?

This extremely successful logistics organisation is highly respected within the express parcels delivery market. It is looking to offer brilliant career progression opportunities to a logistics specialist with senior operational management experience. If your background lies within the parcels / next day delivery industry all the better! Their complex sortation hub needs a Head of Operations with strong, dynamic leadership skills - an accomplished operator and effective decision maker who can hit the ground running and quickly make a difference at this busy night operation. This could be the springboard you need to realise your future logistics career aspirations! Candidates really do need a huge appetite for career progression as this role is viewed as a stepping stone into Director level prospects.

The bread and butter responsibilities of this role will be the running of a seriously complex night sort / cross dock operation. To be successful you won't be someone who hides away in an ivory tower. On the contrary, you will be a strong presence - someone who likes to stay close to the shop floor and is happy to roll back their sleeves to make sure everything is running to plan. You will be highly innovative and capable of spearheading strategic direction - devising and delivering change and taking challenging the status quo and making unwelcome decisions in your stride.

It's a given that you will ensure operational and financial performances are at expected levels through effectively utilising resources and developing best practice solutions and continuous improvement initiatives. It's also taken that you will be a people person, well versed in managing large operational teams of at least 350 fte's, with the ability to positively influence them not only on a day-to-day basis but also through the effective management of any necessary change programmes. Succession planning and continuous development initiatives will play a big part in your success in building strong night shift management teams.

In a nutshell, we seek a dynamic individual with the drive, energy and tenacity needed to achieve the best possible results in this extremely complex, fast paced distribution environment. Someone who is highly committed to delivering exceptional levels of customer service and can ensure that the operation is able to accommodate changing needs and seasonal trends along with on-going growth and development. Good IT skills are essential. This role will involve working permanent nights but some flexibility must be given depending on the needs of the business.

If you feel that you have the skills, qualities and experience that we seek gained from within a similar logistics/parcels operation then Bis Henderson Recruitment recommend that you apply without delay.
