Warehouse Team Leader

Department: Production & Procurement
Closing date: Sunday 17th October 2021

What you’ll be doing

Our Dispatch Team manage the last step of our production process, and are responsible for roughly 2000 pallets full of customers’ orders leaving our farm in Devon every week.

As our Dispatch Team Leader, you will manage a team of around 14 people, and be responsible for completing the dispatch process. Using a manual pick list, your team will pick the veg boxes our customers have ordered, add them to pallets, and get them wrapped ready to be moved into the back of the lorry. Checking the pallets at this point will be key; we need to ensure that the right veg box ends up at the right hub for delivery.

You will support the lorry loaders, making sure that the pallets are added to the lorries in a sensible order and that everything that should be included has been packed. This is the last time we see our customers orders on-site; as team leader, you will seize this opportunity to make sure we’ve done everything possible to get the right order to every customer, and to look after each of those orders in the right way.

Our Dispatch Team are usually the last to finish in our production department, so you will need to use your strong leadership skills to build a sense of team ownership – keeping the team motivated and engaged until the last box has been loaded and dispatched. 

Excellent communication skills are essential for this role. You’ll need to work collaboratively with other departments around the business, dealing with issues and problems as they arise and ultimately keeping the department running smoothly.

This is a permanent contract working 39 hours per week. The working days are Sunday – Thursday starting at 1.00pm – 9.30pm. This role is based at Wash Barn, Buckfastleigh, Devon, TQ11 0JU.
