Leading Logistics company requires Logistics Planners £25-32k plus benefits and further progression

Your new company
This company is a leading specialist logistics service provider, enjoying significant growth and creating jobs with significant opportunities for further progression. Logistics or Supply Chain experience is useful, but any background that combines excellent communication and planning skills, along with IT literacy and an ability to work at pace within a customer focused environment, is applicable.

Your new role
In this position you will join a team of planners, operating in a fast moving environment ensuring that volumes are effectively planned onto the network. You will impact efficiency by paying close attention to various KPIs and Service Levels including vehicle fill, miles covered / units delivered, and on time delivery success rates.

What you'll need to succeed
As stated above, Logistics or Supply Chain experience is useful but any background can be considered so long as key skills are demonstrated within your CV, that you can also display in person. These skills include excellent communication skills, the ability to deal with multiple contacts and collaborate to bring about successful outcomes, good IT skills, problem solving skills, and a customer focused mentality.

What you'll get in return
Excellent salary and benefits with opportunities for further progression within a well structured career path. Please note these roles are on a 4 on 4 off shift pattern which sometimes includes weekends. This pattern doesn't work for everyone, but if you would enjoy having 4 days off every 4 days, then it can be a very enjoyable shift pattern. There are also opportunities for paid overtime if you would like to take it.
