Transport Coordinator, Hull

At Jacksons, we make Great Bread and deliver Great Service, but to do that we need Great People!

The Transport team is integral to our brilliant business and in this key role you will ensure our fleet drivers are utilised effectively and efficiently to ensure our products are dispatched within the agreed timeframes and standards.

What’s involved?

  • Ensure that all products are dispatched in compliance with food health and safety legislation and delivered to our customers on time and in full.
  • Give guidance and advice in the event of problems with delivery times and/or dates to appropriate Manager, customer or members of our Commercial team.
  • Plan and coordinate the staffing arrangements, this includes producing and monitoring rota sheets.
  • Communicate to all drivers on a regular basis information required for them to carry out their tasks and job duties. This includes liaising with other departments.
  • Ensure all drivers work within EU driving regulations, carrying out monthly reviews of driver infringements and coaches where appropriate.
  • Monitor and manage housekeeping schedules for the fleet (both in-house and agency) to uphold our high standards.

To ensure the department has 24 hour cover, the role will require you to work on a rota basis with a combination of days, nights and weekend working.

About You

You will already have experience from a road transport or planning department and have an understanding of transport compliance and law, maintenance and scheduling. 

Given the cross-functional nature of the role, you will be able to communicate effectively at all levels and have exceptional attention to detail with strong computer literacy skills, notably on Excel.

A full UK driving licence is essential and you will also be a CPC Transport Manager holder.

Why Jacksons?

Jacksons is part of William Jackson Food Group, a sixth generation family business founded by William Jackson when he opened his first shop in Hull in September 1851. Today we have a portfolio of five food businesses in distinct, yet complimentary market areas, employing over 2,000 people. We also have a pub!

We have occupied the current site in Hull since 1907 and we now have 3 bread plants in our main bakery. We recently developed a second bakery, also at our site in Hull, which specialises in premium quality roll, wrap and ciabatta production.

We specialise in the supply of bread and other carriers to the sandwich manufacturers, foodservice and export channels, and in 2012 we launched our consumer facing brand “Jackson’s Yorkshire’s Champion”.

We’ve recently built a brand-new site in Corby, Northamptonshire – one of the largest investments our Group has ever made – and this will allow us to realise our ambition of being the best at what we do.

2019 is an exciting time to join us!

Please note that we reserve the right to close this recruitment campaign before the advertised closing date. As such, we advise you to submit your application at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment.
