You need: • To be a modern thinking, proactive and intelligent Warehouse Manager / Operations Manager with experience of managing the goods in / goods out process within a distribution or manufacturing business. • Ideally experience in an SME business (less than £100m turnover) where your role is hands on and highly visible. • Ability to directly manage the team / function – there aren’t layers of managers or supervisors beneath you, youll need to be both strategically aware but very hands on and 'stuck in’. • Able to communicate articulately and openly with the Directors / Owners. • Comfortable with a modern Warehouse management system (WMS) • Interested in and au fait with Kaizen / 5S / Lean working. • Driven, proactive and career focused.
