We have an exciting opportunity for a Depot Manager to join an independently owned food wholesaler and distributor in Poole. This is a very "hands-on" role which offers variety and a chance to take ownership of the operation.

You will be responsible for ensuring the 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. You will lead from the front and engage with your team to ensure you meet and exceed KPI's. This role calls for candidates that have a keen eye for detail and the ability to identify and deliver improvements across the operation.

Candidates will have 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.
