Admin Team Leader – Penrith

The chances are you’ll have eaten our food, so why not share our success and come and work for us? We’re a great company to work for and we have permanent opportunities for drivers to become part of the warehouse department in our Penrith depot.

We’re a leading wholesale food distributor covering the whole of the UK, the preferred supplier for over 60,000 customers and our business is still growing.

This is an exciting time to be joining our team in Penrith, as we have recently increased our presence in the North of England by opening a new depot in Penrith where we plan to service our current Customers and increase our service offering in this area. We believe making this move will help us to continue to achieve our mission to deliver service excellence, make life easier and help our Customers to grow.

You will also uphold standards to make sure that processes and reporting requirements are adhered to, so that we meet our legislative and corporate governance requirements.

You will manage, motivate and develop a small administration and stock team, leading by example to ensure that the whole team achieve and maintain the highest standards of administration, customer service and stock integrity.

A bit about you

We are looking for someone with administration experience in a similar, fast-paced environment, where you have constantly driven high standards through attention to detail, process and team development.

You will be happy working in a structured fashion but be looking for innovative ways in which you can solve problems, support colleagues and generally add value to the organisation’s operation and customer service.

A clear, concise communicator at all levels, you’ll play an influential role with your peers with the vision and business acumen to positively affect the wider commercial business.
