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 Wolverhampton
A West Midlands city that was historically part of Staffordshire, Wolverhampton is said to be named after King Wulfhere after he established an abbey in the seventh century. The city first became prominent as a market town around the 1100s and it was known for its wools and textiles, although it was not granted a royal charter for a market until 1258.
From the 16th century, Wolverhampton started manufacturing items like keys, locks, brassware and ironwork.
During the Industrial Revolution, the city grew significantly, as local mines produced vast quantities of coal, limestone and iron ore. Other goods manufactured in Wolverhampton during this time included steel and japanned ware.
Later, Wolves gained a reputation for producing motorcycles and cars, and the first vehicle to beat the 200 mph land speed record was built in the city.
These days, Wolverhampton is an excellent spot for those looking for Warehouse Manager roles. It is mainly known for engineering works, with a specialty in aerospace and precision components - companies in these industries include HS Marston, MOOG and Goodrich. The service sector is also an important part of the city's economy and it is one of the largest retail centres in the region.
Birmingham Midshires is based in Wolverhampton, while Marston's operates a brewery in the city that produces Banks's, Hanson's and Mansfield beers. Other large businesses include Beatties, Chubb Locks, Tarmac and Carillion.
