This is a really meaty job opportunity for a Transport Planning expert and would be a great career move for someone with the right level of resilience and character, wanting to land a high profile role in the Midlands.

This is not as straight forward as the title would suggest…..there's a lot in terms of leading the future of National Transport Planning. You will lead a full assessment of current systems and capability in the area of transport planning, tasked specifically with identifying the actions and investment needed to build a central control tower. You'll be responsible for redesigning the whole structure, starting with the relocation of planning operations and the start up of a centralised planning function, so there needs to be a real mix of systems knowledge, modelling, continuous improvement focus and excellent stakeholder management.

In addition to this you will be fully accountable for developing the transport end to end planning strategy, focussing on reducing transport movements across the network and delivering against both cost and service targets to maintain the highest levels of availability for their customers.

Your network will consist of 7 Regional DCs, 1 National DC, 18 Manufacturing sites, 500+stores, 3 Consolidation Centres and a growing numbers of suppliers in Primary.

You'll be joining a key player who is a growing and energetic organisation. They are looking for transport planning specialists that can demonstrate a proven track record in transport planning, solutions design, strategic and operational modelling and commercial viability. You will have a reputation for delivering excellent results through an engaged and capable team. It is hoped that you'll have experience in a similar sized transport network and have expert knowledge of Paragon, GTS, Microlise and Isotrack.

Package includes a base salary £65,000 to £70,000, Car/Car Allowance, 25 days holiday plus stats, bonus scheme up to 20%, family private healthcare, pension scheme and staff discount.
