Courier Operations Manager
Do you have solid international courier operations experience? Do you have experience in leading others and are you looking for a new career challenge in 2020.
If so, this could be the perfect opportunity for you to start a rewarding journey by helping Yes 2 Ship set up its new international courier department within a fast expanding and cutting-edge digital online platform.
The successful candidate will head-up a dynamic Heathrow team with an ambition for fast growth and potentially massive personal rewards.
You will probably be currently employed by a "same old, same old" style agent with limited prospects and a scrooge like approach to annual salary reviews...
However, the prospects for the right candidate with us are; regular salary reviews, bonuses, training and early project development responsibilities.
The candidate we are looking for will have a confident, inquisitive and creative personality, that will be nurtured in an environment that is both ambitious, and fast paced.
We are an ethical employer that "looks after" its staff and positively encourages a personal "Greed is Good" approach from its team members, needing candidates just like you who understand that what they put in should be recognised and rewarded by the employer as well.
We have already secured hundreds of thousands of pounds of initial funding for our 2020 growth plans, which will be spent on staff recruitment, training and IT infrastructure.
In January 2020, six new senior members of staff, across all operational departments will be coming onboard, so you will not be alone in joining the most ambitious team in the industry.
Unlike other companies in Logistics, we are gearing for rapid growth through; technical innovation, global networking and the employment of candidates just like you.
The Wizard quote & book platform is "Ready 2 Go" and is set to be the number one "logistics industry disrupting" website of 2020.
Our unique approach is an innovation that significantly alters the way that consumers, industries, and businesses will use a logistics provider and is a disruptive technology that sweeps away the systems and habits of old fashioned couriers.
To summarise, there will be a heavy emphasis on the launch of The Wizard booking platform and the right candidate will be given their own part of the project to run, so this role would suit a candidate with a high degree of self-initiative.
Qualities Required :
* Hunger for a position that will be rewarded for the hard work you put in.
* A long term commitment to building your career.
* You will have a natural willingness to lead others.
* Good communication skills with clear written and verbal English.
