By demonstrating your knowledge, passion and experience in logistics, you’ll inspire your Distribution Centre colleagues to be the best they can be, so that our customers are able to get what they want, when they want it, with the best possible service.
This role is what management should be: leading your colleagues from the front, being visible, and making a difference for our customers.
You’ll have what it takes to lead a customer-focused culture.
As a leader you’ll:
• Drive a culture that empowers colleagues to do the right thing for customers

• Listen to your team, being open and willing to learn, and use this insight to develop the business
• Be a role model so that every colleague knows who you are and what you stand for

• Know how to be at your best and inspire confidence in those around you if things aren’t working out
As a manager you’ll:
• Earn customers’ loyalty through the quality of the products and services
• Develop your management team, with feedback, coaching and plenty of encouragement
• Spot talent, mentor and grow future leaders
• Make sure colleagues have the tools, training and confidence to do their jobs
• Have a strong trade plan in place and equip your team for all trade activities, events and festivals
• Manage costs and colleagues to deliver sales and growth
• Put time into the local community and be a responsible neighbour
Managing a large, complex Distribution Centre will demand all your skills, experience and training to take care of the business, support colleagues and serve our customers.
This is a high-profile role, with hundreds of colleagues and managers looking to you to make sure everyone is fired up, focused and pulling in the same direction. You’ll need to work five days out of seven, with shifts to fit the centre’s operation – including some Sundays and Bank Holidays.
To help you in such an intensive and fast-paced environment, we’ve have a well-defined way of working that you’ll be expect to master quickly.
As a leading figure in a world-class operation, you’ll have a hugely influential decision-making role, where the stakes are high and the potential is enormous.
