Warehouse & Distribution Manager

C£45000 Benefits

As an experienced Warehouse and Distribution manager, how often have you gone into a role where you can make massive, positive changes?

Maybe you've worked in previous roles where you knew the company's systems could be much better if you were allowed to use your skills.

Guess what?

This is that elusive role.

Our client is a privately owned business who've been trading successfully for almost 30 years. They're a manufacturer and wholesaler of high-end, fixed installation, domestic products, with their own manufacturing facility in China.

Historically, their routes to market have been through merchants and retail stockists. However, they've now moved into the specification world and supply developers for larger-scale commercial and residential projects.

Their new CEO is focused on growth and has facilitated the development of new products, which have been very well received by the market.

So, they're setting the scene for significant growth and success.

However, their warehousing and distribution systems need a significant overhaul. And that's where you come in with your skills and ambition to create a world-class operation, almost from scratch.

You'll work closely with the new Supply Chain Director to implement an effective warehouse management system to complement their existing ERP platform. A core part of that process will be creating process maps of the order profiles, flows and layout of the warehouse to choose the correct warehouse management system. The warehouse regularly receives imports/containers from its China manufacturing facility.

In addition, you'll be leading the day-to-day operations in the warehouse, including managing a team of distributors and drivers and liaising with a 3PL provider.

The overall focus for this role is to future-proof the company for its future growth plans, which will include reviewing the structure of its delivery fleet and distribution operation. So, you'll be able to draw on your experience in distribution management to facilitate that and liaise with third party transport pallet and carrier networks.

They will also likely need to alter their current day shift. So, you'll also need to run a performance review of this pattern and productivity levels to ensure OTIF, based on the best methods of goods receipt, put away, replenishment, picking, order preparation, loading vans and ensuring there is staff cover. This may include negotiations with staff over hours and terms and conditions. As such, you'll be able to use your first-class people management and communication skills to introduce those changes.

As for your background, our client expects you will have significant experience in operational warehousing and logistics, ideally within a UK B2B business. Plus, with safety being a prime concern, you'll need to show proven leadership in Health and Safety (IOSH / NEBOSH qualified).

Ultimately, you'll thrive on the challenge of transforming a warehouse and distribution facility to create a future-proofed, world-class operation.

 

As you can imagine, there are many other details to discuss. So please indicate your interest by emailing your CV, LX 1182461 or call us on 01905 381 320.

  • Maintenance & Engineering Manager

    MAINTENANCE & ENGINEERING MANAGER

     

    "Experienced Maintenance Manager with Electrical Engineering bias & high voltage experience sought for Plastic Processing and Recycling Plant."

     

    Sheffield

     

    c£50000 Bonus Benefits

     

    Our client is a very successful and expanding large family business across 2 sites in Sheffield and North Derbyshire. The focus of this role is the Sheffield plastic processing site with occasional visits to the recycling plant and warehouse a short distance away. The company operates to the highest H&S and environmental standards.

     

    The business is concerned with extruding, manufacturing, and supplying plastic materials and components to the construction sector. The recycling plant uses plastic waste materials from construction sites and reprocesses them.

     

    The Maintenance Manager will manage a small team including a mechanical specialist and an apprentice. The production lines, which are relatively new, operate on High Voltage. Although not fully automated this is something that may be considered in the future. However, the systems, drives, motors, inverters etc are controlled with Siemens PLC's. Support from OEM equipment.

     

    The recycling plant consists of a shredder, washing plant, pelletising, and water purification equipment. Cutting, shaping, and printing of polypropylene sheet is also an activity.

    Considerable investment has been made and both plants have expanded over the years with further growth planned and so will the maintenance activity.

     

    The company is very environmentally focussed in its approach. PPM and TPM are important principles with downtime minimised and reliability optimised. Integrating Continuous Improvement in efficiency and effectiveness are key.

     

    The role would also entail the management of a small maintenance team one of whom is mechanically focussed and experienced. Accordingly, the client is seeking a dual skilled Maintenance Manager who has ideally also served time as an electrical engineering apprentice with 17th or 18th Edition wiring qualifications.

     

    You will have experience in processing, industrial, manufacturing or engineering plant maintenance. Plastics or recycling experience would be useful but not essential. Any experience with pneumatics, hydraulics and air handling is useful.

     

    Experience of managing or supervising others is desired so you may currently be a supervisor, team leader or senior engineer for example or similar. Experience in working with equipment manufacturers, contractors, suppliers, etc is valuable.

     

    Although this is a 24/7 continuous operation you would be on site 8am to 4pm and very unlikely to be called out due to the exceptionally high standards of equipment, quality, and maintenance.

     

    You will be the kind of person who is dynamic and enthusiastic, likes to grasp and take ownership of an issue or problem, is friendly and with a sense of humour and who likes involvement with others in the team.
