Warehouse Manager jobs
Keeping track of inventory is an extremely important part of any business. It helps to ensure that the right level of stock is maintained at all times and that customer delivery targets can be achieved. It is also essential for financial, record-keeping and insurance purposes.
The role of a Warehouse Manager is to keep track of the warehouse capacity and to plan the storage resources. After all, too little stock and the organisation may not be able to fulfil orders or maintain production levels, while too much stock means there won’t be enough space in the facility.
Warehouse Managers are responsible for accurately recording and processing goods received, as well as dispatches. In some cases, they may also be tasked with managing deliveries and liaising with colleagues to correct problems like overstocks and shortages.
In addition, the Warehouse Manager should take steps to ensure all health and safety regulations are adhered to and that staff are properly trained and motivated.
The skills required
Anyone seeking to take on a role as a Warehouse Manager should have an excellent understanding of warehouse operations, practices and procedures.
Successful candidates will need to possess excellent organisation skills and be detail oriented. Computer skills should include an ability to use databases and spreadsheets, while knowledge of warehouse management systems and software related to the role will be beneficial.
You should be a confident communicator, able to explain instructions, policies and procedures clearly to team members. You will also need to provide KPI reports to directors and other company stakeholders.
Warehouse Manager Jobs in Chesterfield
Situated 9 miles (15 km) south of Sheffield, the Derbyshire town of Chesterfield has more influence from this city than it does with Derby, its county capital, 21 miles (35 km) to the south. To the east of the town the M1 passes on its Nottingham to Sheffield stretch, and the west of Derby is taken up with 3 miles (5 km) of agricultural land before the start of the Peak District National Park. Chesterfield is connected to Derby, Leicester, Rotherham and Sheffield by rail. Its current population of around 100,000 makes it the most populous town in Derbyshire, second in size only to the city of Derby.
Historically a market town, Chesterfield became associated with coal mining after the discovery of a large seam in the 19th century, when the town’s population grew rapidly. The coal was discovered during the excavation of a tunnel for George Stephenson’s Derby to Leeds railway line. During construction, Stephenson moved to Chesterfield, and it was in the town that he was to end his days, aged 67. A statue of Stephenson stands outside Chesterfield railway station. The engineering legacy continued until recently, however. Chesterfield-based Markham & Co. made the machines that excavated the Channel Tunnel, among other tunnels.
Much of the heavy industry has now left Chesterfield, and in many ways the town has returned to its Market roots, although there is understandably a much larger service and local government sector now. Occasionally, Warehouse Manager positions are filled in Chesterfield, but more so in the surrounding area, particularly Sheffield.
