NEW PERMANENT NATIONAL PLANNER ROLE IN CHESTERFIELD
Your new company
A choice local business with a strong brand, market presence and culture of professional development. Working from a brand new, state of the art and purpose built office facility in Chesterfield, you will be part of a small and efficient planning team. Your new role As a National Planner, your primary responsibility will be to schedule vehicles for the national operations, ensuring correct volume loads and delivery times. You will be ever mindful of customer requirements, cost targets, legality and O licence regulations.
