Transport Coordinator, Hull
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.
This role will require you to work days on a rota basis, working one in three weekends. The hours will vary but will be a combination of early and late finishes.
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, or be working towards this accreditation.
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”.
