Site Manager

Date: 07-Apr-2021

Location: Washington, GB

Company: XPO Logistics

Logistics done differently.


Are you looking for a career role but not sure how to get on the ladder? Come and join our Hovis transport operation in Washington. The role is a great opening for someone to get experience of their first Site Manager position. It’s a small cross-dock operation with 16 class 2 drivers, delivering bread to local shops in the vicinity of the depot.


Pay, benefits and more:


We’re looking to offer a salary of between £40,000 - £45,000 per annum. In addition, we offer access to a variety of high street discounts, as well as a cycle to work scheme, a workplace pension and many other perks.


 What you’ll do on a typical day:


  • Day-to-day you will actively manage the P&L for the site, whilst being the O-licence holder and ensuring the site is safe and fully compliant at all times – ask us about our ‘road to zero’ campaign
  • A large part of your role will be to ensure a smooth handover between shifts, ensuring debriefs are informative and problems are dealt with in a proactive manner
  • You will lead and develop your team of drivers, ensuring their continued development and progression is at the heart of everything you do – although the operation is small, our people still matter
  • Continuous improvement is really important to us. Although we’re good at what we do, we always strive to improve whilst ideas are welcomed from all employees


What you need to succeed at XPO:


  • Previous transport experience looking after multiple drivers – it would be a bonus if this is from a cross-dock environment but it’s not a necessity
  • You’ll need to have good exposure to compliance issues, H&S processes and procedures – compliance and safety are really important to us and our customer
  • If you hold a Transport Managers CPC this would be a big plus, we’ll still consider those that don’t but want to learn


Be part of something big. #LI-DL1
