With over 60 branches, a customer base of 100,000 retailers and a product range of over 25,000 items – Bestway is the largest independent food wholesaler in the UK and we now have a fantastic opportunity for a Replenishment Team Leader to join our Barking Depot.
As our Team Leader you will lead the Replenishment and Goods-In teams, working to maintain 98% stock availability, ensuring the space allocation of stock enables maximum operating efficiency and leading the team to follow effective stock rotation procedures to minimise loss. You’ll also be responsible for the control and management of goods-in, ensuring that stock is received in accordance with purchase order, in saleable condition and is recorded correctly to our in-house system. You’ll ensure Health and Safety legislation is adhered to and drive the standards for great customer satisfaction, working collaboratively with fellow team leader and the depot management team to achieve all targets and objectives.
To be successful in this role, you’ll need previous experience of successfully leading a replenishment/goods-in team in a fast paced wholesale, retail or logistics operation. Highly organised, with exceptional planning skills you’ll have the ability to effectively manage and prioritise tasks while your problem solving skills mean you can re-work situations when required to ensure minimum impact to the business or customer. Commercially focused, you are committed to achieving targets and delivering outstanding customer service. A role model, your coaching and mentoring skills motivate your team to exceed targets and achieve their full potential.
This is a hands-on job where no 2 days are the same. You’ll need to work 5 days over 7 with shifts to fit our opening hours including weekends and bank holidays. However if you like the idea of running a significant department operation and inspiring your team to achieve, you’ll find this a hugely rewarding role.
