Logistics Manager – Horticulture/Agriculture
Competitive Salary + benefits
A wonderful client of mine has been in contact and is currently looking for a highly experienced Logistics Manager to join their ever-growing business within the Horticulture industry. My client is the UK’s largest wholesale distributor of seed and plants and have been a solid part of the industry for over 50 years. Their expansive and varied product range has seen them climb to the top of their market, and with a strong plan going into 2019, they are set for a brilliant year.
As Logistics Manager within the Horticulture industry, you will ideally need to have an understanding of sensitive living products, and temperature control deliveries. You will have experience with a multi-delivery set up and experience with a hub network. You will be managing a fleet of agency drivers, so previous man-management would be desired. You will also need strong communication skills and knowledge of cost control, with the ability to bring all costs in line.
The ideal background of the right candidate would be from the horticulture/agriculture industry, however, candidates from a fresh food/chilled food background will also be considered for the role. As the business is in the Oxfordshire area, you will need to be based in and around Banbury to be considered for the position.
This is a great opportunity to work with a fantastic business with a strong family feel and a clear vision of what they want to achieve in the coming years.
If you would like to be considered for the position please call James Fowler on 0113 205 4970, alternatively send your CV to firstname.lastname@example.org.
