Six figure salary + bonus + benefits
TalentSphere currently seek an experienced Distribution Manager with experience managing multi site distribution facilities to join our client, a global manufacturing business.
Managing an employee base of approximately 120 unionized employees, the distribution manager is ultimately responsible for the distribution operations being as efficient and effective as possible. Accountable for the Canadian operations' on-time in-full delivery performance across their network of distribution centers, the Manager Distribution will set and monitor KPI's, design and continually improve efficiency of processes, manage workforce planning requirements, measure and manage shipping costs, take responsibility for inventory management, and drive productivity of the labor force within the boundaries of the union relationship.
Responsible for internal employees and external 3rd party logistics suppliers, this role is very much a leadership role and will make a significant strategic impact to the overall business performance. The right candidate will balance strategic input with hands on delivery and it is important that they have a 'roll your sleeves' up mentality and are always willing to get involved in activities within the warehouse or yard operations.
The ideal candidate will come from an industrial manufacturing environment and will have been managing a similarly sized employee population. They will have hands on, practical experience of distribution and will likely have worked their way up through the distribution side of a manufacturing business. They must have proven people leadership experience at a similar scale to this and should be comfortable being both strategic and tactical in their management style. Experience of a union is preferred but not essential.
This role is hiring ASAP so please do not hesitate to send us your resume.
Thank you for your interest in this position, we look forward to hearing from you.
