There’s every chance you’ll have eaten our food, so why not share our success and come and work for us? Bidfood is a leading wholesale food distributor and the preferred supplier for over 60,000 customers across the UK, ranging from pubs to schools, from restaurants to care homes and everything in between.
From Lands End to John O’Groats, whether our customers want just a teaspoon or a full range of catering supplies, we’ll supply their needs. We work as a team to provide every food option from quality ingredients to finished meals, including a number of own brand ranges as well as all the big brands and regional specialties. We believe in our food, and we know that our people behind the scenes are so very important in our success.
Reporting in to the Head of Operations, you’ll manage the daily operation and performance of the warehouse and its team in order to provide the expected service to our customers within budget.
Effective team deployment and development is vital to ensure the warehouse operation provides the highest levels of operational efficiencies, service excellence and productivity within the business. You’ll be capable of recruiting and inducting skilled and motivated people into our business and will lead and engage teams to be successful.
All warehouse assets need to be closely controlled to keep costs to a minimum and you will work closely with operations and central colleagues to make sure that internal service standards are as high as external ones.
Your success will be measured in the achievement of these service standards, as well as commercial objectives covering cost and stock-loss control, product availability and a wide range of people factors such as training and attendance.
You must have food warehousing and distribution experience. You will be an excellent planner and communicator; skilled at working to both tight budgets and tight timescales.
