Bury St Edmunds

We are delighted to be working with a prestigious, luxury, family run business that has been

providing retail, removals and storage services to East Anglia and surrounding areas for nearly 80 years.

You will be responsible for;

* Looking after a fleet of vehicles, ensuring total compliance of the driving regulations and working time directive (It would be an advantage to be CPC National/International qualified or have an equivalent qualification).

* The Home Removals and Storage side of the business (Experience in the removal industry is advantageous, preferably in a management or operations role, and any specialist removal qualifications would be useful).

* The operation, management, sales, purchasing of consumables, the health and safety of the site, recruitment of the team, staff development and vehicle maintenance.

You will;

* Have excellent organisation and IT skills are required, particularly Microsoft Office, (knowledge of Moveman estimating software would be highly advantageous).

* Have strong leadership and communication skills.

* Ensure that estimates are created accurately using the Moveman software and allocating resources to jobs to stay within the estimated costs, whilst ensuring the highest level of customer service is provided.

The role is mainly office based but also involves house visits, surveying and estimating, customer liaison and planning.

The business operates out of a warehouse facility in Bury St Edmunds, which it shares with the retail delivery service side of the business along with a commercial storage division. 

You will need to live locally to the warehouse. Our client has been offering home removals for over 75 years and has built a strong reputation for offering the very best service, customer care and expertise. This is a rare opportunity to join a family-run business in a management capacity and offers a competitive salary, performance related bonus, company pension and generous staff discount.
