You should hold an Honours degree (or higher qualification) in an engineering, technical, business or supply chain related discipline and have significant practical experience of physical logistics and distribution. You will also need to be versatile, possess excellent communication and presentation skills and be able to operate in a flexible team environment.

We are supportive of staff with caring responsibilities including a generous maternity/paternity/adoption/parental leave policy, onsite childcare facilities and the childcare vouchers scheme. We will consider applications for employment on a part-time or other flexible working basis, even where a position is advertised as full-time, unless there are operational or other objective reasons why it is not possible to do so.
