Transport Dispatcher

We are on the lookout for a motivated and experienced Transport Dispatcher in Halifax, to work in a full-time role from 8 am - 5 pm Monday through Thursday, with an early finish (2 pm) on Friday to set you up for the weekend!

You'll need to be a committed and reliable individual with warehouse operative experience looking to continue a career in transport dispatch. The starting salary will be £9 p/h.

This role is very hands-on, and you will be expected to help out now and again in the goods in department when needed.

Transport Dispatcher job requirements and expectations:

  • You will need to understand the function of the warehouse and how it feeds into the drivers
  • Dealing with clients with service level agreements is something you will need to be familiar with
  • The goods you will be dealing with are products and returns, so you will need an eye for detail to check they conform and deal with returns as necessary
  • You will liaise with the transport leader and plan routes so a logistical background would be advantageous
  • Knowledge of Sage and Cypro systems will be also helpful in this role.

The job will suit someone looking for Transport Manager experience, a person who is proactive and can think on their feet.

A sense of humour will definitely come in handy, too, as the team you'll be working in like a bit of banter to break up their day!

In return for your commitment and reliability, you will receive a starting salary of £9 p/h, with options for overtime available, alongside a few company benefits to add to your overall package once probation has been passed.

For the right person, there are good chances of career progression.
