Is operating effectively in a transport environment one of your strengths? Is coordinating drivers and ensuring you run a safe and efficient operation a day-to-day occurrence for you? Do you find building strong and sustainable relationships with stakeholders a piece of cake? If so, we are looking for a Site Manager to run our sites in the north west including Kirkby Thore and satellite outbase. We run a contract for British Gypsum, where we run a team of 50 drivers, loading bay operatives and transport professionals within the office.

What you’ll do on a typical day:


  • Be proactive in identifying change and continuous improvement opportunities throughout the warehouse and transport operations
  • Provide operational excellence through leadership and development for the site management team, create a one team culture across all site functions
  • Accountability for site performance, delivering on agreed KPIs and operational metrics, and building strong relationships with stakeholders and the network team
  • Ownership of the site safety strategy, through colleague engagement and delivering a first-class safety culture
