You thrive in a fast-paced, collaborative setting and are comfortable occasionally getting hands-on, whether operating machinery or problem-solving dynamic operational challenges. Your background at larger logistics firms gives you an appreciation for efficient practices, but you now prefer a more personal company culture where your contributions are valued, and you feel integral to the team. You're a resilient self-starter who can work independently and contribute to a tight-knit team.


Is this Role the Right Fit?


Based near the A1 in Peterborough, the role involves Monday-Friday hours from 10am-8pm, with flexibility for holidays/peak periods. The compensation package includes a £38,000 to £44,000 salary based on experience, performance bonuses tied to key operational metrics, and holiday entitlement increasing with service. There are also opportunities for growth as our client opens new depots.


If you have the drive, experience, and passion to succeed in this diverse operations role, apply now. This could be the perfect next step to accelerate your career in logistics.
