James Latham Yate - Depot Director

31 March 2022

Exciting opportunity for someone with previous experience in sales and operations to take on responsibility for our Yate operation, looking after a team of 50 employees, supported by on-site Operations and Sales Managers.

The successful candidate will report to a Latham’s Limited Director and will be supported by colleagues throughout the business. They will oversee all aspects of the site including budgeting and overheads, performance of sales and operations, and people management. They must be able to implement group policy in such things as health and safety, customer care, supply chain and developing employees in order to build a strong team and grow the business.

They will need to be pro-active, confident and an excellent communicator. It is essential that they have the skills to lead a team and make decisions independently but seek advice appropriately.

The Yate site is soon to be a 65,000 ft3 purpose-built facility located near the A4174 Bristol ring road, close to both the M4 and M5. It opened in June 2017 at 55,000 ft3 having relocated from a site nearby. It has excellent facilities that allow us to meet customer needs efficiently while providing employees with a safe, comfortable working environment.

Previous experience in the timber industry is not essential.

Package is by negotiation but would include a competitive salary, bonus schemes, private medical cover, pension and car allowance. Relocation expenses would be available if necessary.

Closing date 15th April
