Established over 40 years ago, Friars Pride is an independent, family-owned company and one of the premier suppliers to fish & chip shops, fast food outlets and bakers. We’re also a member of the Q Partnership, a group of three independent organisations collectively offering a pan-UK distribution network and working together to initiate trade innovations and supply exclusive branded products nationwide.
The Plymouth depot is the sixth depot of Friars Pride, taken on board from an acquisition of Plymouth Agencies. With a passion for the trade and desire to grow into the South West, Friars Pride are putting investment into infrastructure, Lorries, and Sales and Marketing support to help the Plymouth depot grow its already established customer base.
As Depot Manager in this varied "hands-on" operational based role, reporting to the Area Depot Manager, you’ll assist in ensuring our Plymouth depot runs smoothly, profitably and efficiently, managing its day-to-day running via its established team of office staff, drivers and warehouse. From depot opening, through picking and loading, rolling stock takes to vehicle dispatch and return, there’s a comprehensive range of responsibilities which also include liaising closely with our Sales team to help increase sales. Other key elements of the role include:
• stock control
• site maintenance and cleanliness
• day-to-day staff issues
• health & safety
You will also take responsibility for vehicle maintenance, MOTs and service schedules.
The role of Depot Manager requires a proven track record in managing a busy distribution depot, where your strong people management skills have combined with excellent customer focus to deliver first-rate service. You should have strong IT skills, enjoy the challenge of meeting and exceeding KPIs, and be familiar with drivers’ hours and tachograph law. The right person will proactively control costs as well as provide industry leading service. You will also have the strength and vision to help our management team with growth plans and improve the sales focus at the depot. A full UK driving licence is essential.
