General Manager
£75,000 - £80,000 + car allowance, bonus and benefits
Multi-channel retailer looking for a General Manager to lead an e-commerce and retail distribution / Transport / Trunking operation .

A well- established multi-channel retailer seeks a dynamic distribution professional with strong leadership qualities to take operational and P&L responsibility for one of their largest Distribution facilities and associated transport / trunking operation.

This dynamic operation services a high street and on-line shopping business and will give the successful candidate responsibility for a sizeable operational budget. The fully automated, high tech DC has an extremely large complement of staff across all functions and it is serviced by a significant fleet of trunking vehicles. It goes without saying that we seek candidates with a strong operational background, a strategic mind-set and the gravitas necessary to manage all the complexities involved in running an operation of this magnitude.

The continuing rise of e-commerce and ever changing customer expectations means that this operation has an ever- shifting landscape. It calls, therefore, for a highly accomplished e-fulfilment / warehouse and transport operator with a thorough understanding of modern distribution and logistics procedures in a retail / e-fulfilment environment. You will have the capacity to continually identify opportunities for improved operational performance, the strategic vision to review operational capabilities for seasonal trends and future growth and the capacity to initiate and execute any changes necessary to improve the operation.

It goes without saying that you will have exceptional people management skills and hands-on experience of managing large teams within a unionised environment. You will be a natural leader who can manage, motivate and develop individual team members to achieve their full potential. By nature, you will adopt an open communication style with your people and inspire a positive and productive, customer centric work environment.

Essentially you will be a financially astute individual who is capable of improving business efficiencies through effective cost control and budgeting. High levels of IT proficiency are also to be expected

In essence we are looking for a customer service driven leader; an individual, who is results focussed, has the resilience and tenacity to succeed in a fast paced Logistics environment with conflicting and changing priorities and who has the gravitas needed to gain the respect of a considerable multi-functional work-force. If you consider yourself up to the challenge of managing this key distribution site and making a lasting impression on the business then Bis Henderson highly recommend that you apply today. This pivotal role would see the successful individual join this organisation at an exciting time as their plans to further develop their operation progress. We would not only be interested in hearing from candidates with an e-commerce / retail logistics background but would also value interest from candidates with a background in a fast paced highly automated environment such as mail or parcels
