Description

The company 
Our client is one of the largest fully integrated logistics providers operating in New Zealand. Due to their global supply chain ties and local network, they are in a prime position to grow their market share as an end to end solution for both domestic and international clients. 

Our client deals with a variety of commodities across all industries and has a close link across the Tasman that refers business through where possible. There is also a heavy focus on technology to help both internally and create more visibility for customers externally. This role looks after two sites in Wellington and is a key cog in the national network. 

The Opportunity….
This role reports to an outstanding National Operations Manager – Logistics, who will hold you accountable, but at the same time will be a great mentor. This position looks after two sites in Wellington, which also act as a key cog in the national linehaul network. 

Each site has a very different client base, where one is larger, more fragile items, and the other being on the opposite end of the spectrum with smaller items and more picks. You will be managing 5 people across both sites and need to be a hands on leader that is happy to do a bit of everything. This person will float between the two sites and be responsible for continuous improvement initiatives as you see fit. 

You will obviously be accountable for your team’s performance, but at the same time, you will be given autonomy to run your own show. The operation is running well but there is definitely room for improvement in overall performance. 

What’s in it for you?   
The chance to lead a multi-site operation with a solid client base. Significant growth opportunity as volumes continue to increase. Future career opportunities available across the business if you perform well in this role. 

The challenge will be balancing your workload between sites while building capability in both teams. This is a successful branch, but the challenge will be to improve on what’s already there by running it lean and efficiently. Would only suit someone who is hands on and action orientated. Previous site management responsibilities are critical for anyone wanting to be considered.
