Assisting the Transport and Logistics Manager you will contribute to the provision of an integrated national transport and logistics service and assist in the delivery of a cost-effective transport service by maximising vehicle/driver utilisation.


You will be responsible for supervising the day-to-day allocation of transport duties and ensuring our fleet of vehicles are fit for purpose, including monitoring and maintaining fuel stocks, ensuring any defects or accidents are reported and actioned, checking timesheets and vehicle logs, dispatching drivers and updating our manual and computerised records. We’ll also look to you to take care of routine vehicle maintenance and cleaning as you bring a real sense of team spirit to our workplace.


You will have the ability to demonstrate recent experience of a supervisory role within the transport industry, managing a fleet of vehicles subject to Road Transport & Operators licensing legislation. You will need to possess a full and valid driving licence, allowing you to drive in the UK.  You’ll probably have a driver assessment qualification too.
