Logistics Manager

 

ID&C Ltd is looking for a new Logistics Manager.

This is a full time, permanent position, with a salary range of £25k-£30k, depending on experience.

 

About The ID&C Group:

ID&C is an established, award-winning business based in Tunbridge Wells, Kent.

We manufacture and supply wristbands and accreditation products to leading events all over the world.

In addition to state-of-the-art production machinery in the UK, we have a global supply chain and customer base.

Our level of success up to 2019 attracted the eye of Avery UK, itself a part of CCL Industries, and in January 2020 we were acquired.  Considering the subsequent impact of covid-19 on what has been our primary sectors, this was highly fortunate timing.

Backed by CCL, we are now seeking talented individuals to join our fast-paced team to grow the company even more profoundly, breaking all our pre-covid records.

The timing is now perfect for an experienced Logistics Manager to join our dynamic team.

 

What to expect at ID&C?

  • To become part of a team immediately, ready on the first day, hitting the ground running
  • Teamwork and collaborative working
  • To win! We are on an incredible mission in an exciting sector and need someone who will add fuel to the fire from day one
 

What will you do?

  • Broaden the company’s offering by increasing our shipping options while reducing costs
  • Maintain uninterrupted shipping, proactively identifying risk due to few or unreliable suppliers
  • Manage our shipping carriers and the end-to-end receipt and distribution of all goods

You will be accountable to the Head of Supply Chain for:

  • Managing the Logistics team
  • Supporting Sales with pricing and quotes, including for non-routine deliveries and air or sea freight
  • Increasing our carrier reliability
  • Improving our per-kg importing and inward freight costs as a percentage of costs of sales
  • Post-Sales management, including dispatching and tracking deliveries, fully integrated with our Purchasing and Operations teams and US office

This is a key role that directly impacts on a customer’s experience of ID&C.

 

Skills that will help your application:

  • Experience of navigating Logistics turbulence caused by covid and Brexit
  • Knowledge of commercial codes and incoterms
  • Experience of different carriers and same day couriers and contacts on which to draw
  • An exceptional eye for detail and quality control
  • A strong work ethic with an ability to thrive under pressure
  • The motivation to improve an already well-performing Logistics function
 

You will be:

  • A team player by action not by word
  • A go-getter and self-starter
  • Self-sufficient
  • Positive, happy, humble, and honest
  • Creative and innovative – adding that little bit of magic
 

You must:

  • Want to grow your career
