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.
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.
