  • To process customer transactions efficiently and accurately together with undertaking associated warehouse and stock management activities within agreed service levels


As part of the branch team you will engage in Continuous Improvement and share best practice with colleagues together with having a strong focus on supporting the Field Sales Team and other key support departments within the business to support the larger world class sales teams we can be proud of.


What they are looking for:

We are looking for proactive, dynamic people who are willing to work hard, willing to provide the flexibility that working in small/medium sized teams demand. People who are looking for the challenges that working in a competitive business environment will provide.
