Transport Manager - Loughborough

Transport Manager jobs

Whether a business is supplying stock to corporate customers or as part of a home delivery service, the Transport Manager is responsible for ensuring orders get delivered safely, efficiently and on time.

Of course, the role will vary from company to company, but in most cases, this will involve developing best practice procedures, implementing guidelines and continually monitoring and analysing key performance indicators to ensure customer satisfaction.

Tasks may include investigating incidents, providing briefings and reporting to stakeholders on a regular basis. You will also be responsible for ensuring that all activities adhere to legal requirements and company policies.

In addition, as a Transport Manager, you will be in charge of a team, so it’s likely the job will encompass scheduling staff, motivating the team and providing relevant training and coaching. Interviewing potential new team members and carrying out regular performance reviews may also be part of your job remit.

The skills required

If you’re applying for a role as a Transport Manager, excellent communication skills are a must and you should be capable of leading a team in a sometimes stressful and always busy working environment.

A strong understanding of the systems and software used in the day-to-day job can also be also beneficial.

Finally, a customer-focussed attitude is essential and you should always be looking for ways to improve efficiencies and drive performance to a higher level.

Transport Manager Jobs in Loughborough

Loughborough is a town in the north of Leicestershire, close to the Nottinghamshire border. It has been a market town since the Middle Ages, serving the cities and villages in the vicinity, but it is perhaps best known in modern times for its university. Loughborough is in the middle of a triangle formed by Leicester, Nottingham and Derby (all of which have their counties named after them), which are all roughly 10 miles (16 km) distant. Loughborough is served by the M1 motorway, and the A6 runs through the town on its way to Leicester. The town has good railway links to the aforementioned cites.

Loughborough University is generally regarded as being one of the best universities in the nation, but if its sports and engineering subjects are isolated, it could easily be in the top three or four. Much groundbreaking research has gone on in these fields, and the university attracts sporting coaches and strategists, aerospace engineers and students of certain crossover disciplines such as motor racing. Although best known for these technical disciplines, the university does offer the full range of subjects.

Loughborough is not particularly industrialised, but it does have several technical and research parks that are linked to the university. The town remains a thriving market town and the student population ensures its entertainment and nightlife needs to be kept well stocked. Taken together, this could be promising for anyone seeking Transport Manager work in Loughborough itself, but with three quite industrialised cities on the doorstep, the outlook appears even brighter.
