If you enjoy working for an organisation that thrives on values such as teamwork, integrity, responsibility, encourages personal growth and celebrates achievements, then we think you would enjoy working for us.
In the same way that the moving experience is not just about providing the right type of removal vehicle or the right type of packing material, working for Robinsons is not just about providing the right desk or company car – it’s about the friendliness, commitment and dedication of our people. That is why we remain one of the most trusted names in moving, as well as one of the most genuine companies to work for.
Whether your interests lie in finding a practical hands-on role working locally or in different locations across the country, or you enjoy providing a real moving solution to customers, the opportunities at Robinsons are as diverse as the people who work here.
We are looking for people who have good communication skills together with a friendly personality and ‘can do’ attitude, common sense, the ability to work in a team but also show that little bit of an entrepreneurial spirit, commercial awareness, energy, resilience and adaptability. But above all, we are looking for people who believe in really looking after our clients and putting that into practice.
This is a rather unique job and will take someone very special to fill it.
Let’s state right from the start that unless you have demonstrable and proven skills in managing and scheduling the delivery of household goods across Europe within the moving industry you will not be selected for an interview.
With that out of the way lets tell you why this is a terrific challenging and rewarding role for the right person.
This is for someone who relishes the day to day challenges associated with moving goods across Europe, hates the idea of running an empty load and loves operating within given cost guidelines. You already know that two days are never going to be alike, and without effective communication you will be sunk without a trace. One moment you could be talking with one of your colleagues about a company problem to solve; the next, one of the major interior design houses about a VIP project with a very small time frame target to meet and the next email you look at is from one of our agent partners in France.
This will be the key part of the role and will probably take around 60% of your time. But, this can also be very seasonal and the role combines management responsibilities to oversee and provide support to two Site Managers based in Manchester and in Redditch. You will need to successfully combine hands on skills with the European part of the role and effective development skills for the remote management of the two site managers.
What proven skills and knowledge must you already have?
Financial and commercial awareness and be experienced in people management, development and motivation
Trip Management and full awareness of ‘local’ transport restrictions of each country for effective European road freight operating
Confidence and organisational abilities
Costing and pricing, cost management and reconciliation
Internal and external client liaison
Supply chain management
Assist with operative recruitment and training
Ability to communicate effectively in the key European languages
Holder of International CPC
Employment package with a value of up to £40k
Including salary, pension scheme, health scheme, use of pool car for external visits
Direct reporting to Group Operations Director
Working from offices in B98 – Redditch, Worcestershire
Full job description will be sent to successful candidates
