The complexity of warehousing, with its constant throughflow of goods and the need to keep on top of stock, orders and incoming goods, means that the head of warehousing is an important role. While much of the stocktaking and order fulfilment will be computerised, a head of warehousing, with decision making powers, will be required to maintain efficiency and deal with incidents that could affect it.
The head of warehousing will also have duties related to maintaining customer satisfaction, and this could require some contact with customers when team members cannot deal with an issue or when the customer wishes to elevate one.
In many cases, the head of warehousing’s job will include recruitment of staff and training them in the systems used in the warehouse. The role could include overseeing health and safety and security, although head office might deal directly with such matters.
An ability to keep on top of a complex, ever-changing environment will be an essential asset for this role. While the exact stock levels of warehoused goods will be known to individual team members and controlled by the computer system, the ability to predict need and plan for foreseeable events will be useful.
The job might also involve a lot of walking to physically check levels of goods on the shelves, so in many head of warehousing positions, an above average level of fitness is stipulated, although this will not always be the case.
IT skills will be essential, as the head will need to be able to call upon the status of any element under his or her control at a moment’s notice.

Stirlingshire is a historic county in central Scotland bordered to the north by Perthshire and the south by Lanarkshire and Dunbartonshire. Were it not for a few miles of land occupied by Dunbartonshire at its western side, Stirlingshire would stretch all the way from the Firth of Forth to the Firth of Clyde. The town of Stirling is located at its eastern side, 22 miles (35 km) north east of Glasgow and 30 miles (50 km)north west of Edinburgh.
Both the east and the west of Stirlingshire come within the catchment areas of Scotland’s two major cities, Edinburgh and Glasgow, although there are few large concentrations of population within the county area itself. Stirling’s population is only around 20,000. The best prospects for anyone seeking Head of Warehousing jobs in Stirlingshire is to look to the cities and the larger towns that occupy the land between them, although similar positions have been filled in the past within the county area.
