Warehouse Shift Manager - Devon

Warehouse Shift Manager jobs

Keeping the warehouse running effectively is essential for any business, as it ensures that products are delivered in a timely manner, stocks are maintained at the right levels and records are kept up to date.

The role of a Warehouse Shift Manager will vary, depending on the company in question and the nature of the business. However, whether the organisation operates in the manufacturing, construction, retail, medical or defence sector - or another field - the person in this role will be responsible for leading a team and ensuring all activities run smoothly and efficiently.

In most cases, this will involve scheduling teams, managing operational activities and ensuring all working practices follow guidelines established by the company, health and safety and government legislation.

The skills required

Anyone considering a role as a Warehouse Shift Manager should have a knack for communication, as you’ll need to provide instructions to your team and report to directors, customers and colleagues on a regular basis. Good organisation skills are a must and you should be keenly aware of details.

In addition, an analytical mind and ability to make carefully considered decisions quickly will help you stand out from the competition.

Computer literacy is also a must - particularly knowledge of WMS systems, spreadsheets and databases, as well as the Microsoft Office suite.

Finally, since the role requires working on a shift rota, candidates will need to have flexible schedules and be comfortable with working at any time of the day.

Warehouse Shift Manager Jobs in Devon

Located in the south-west of England, with coastlines on the Bristol Channel, English Channel and the Celtic Sea, Devon shares a border with Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset.

It is one of the largest counties in England and with settlements including Exeter, Dartmouth, Plymouth and Torbay, there are a number of Warehouse Shift Manager positions to be found in Devon.

Devon has been occupied by humans for many thousands of years. Indeed, human remains from as many as 40,000 years ago have been found in the region, while Romans and Anglo-Saxons also called the region home.

In the past, Devon's core industries included farming, fishing and mining, while the seaside resorts brought significant wealth to the area in their heydays.

These days, the region is still heavily reliant on agriculture and dairy, producing products like milk and cheese, as well as the famous Devonshire cream.

A number of well-known companies can be found in the area, including the Wrigley chewing gum company and Beverage Brands, which makes WKD vodka.

The Met Office is also located in Devon, as is the Britannia Royal Naval College and HNBP Devonport.
