Our furniture may be fancy-schmancy, but we are just a team of everyday people. We show up to work every day, relentless in our pursuit to make Amart Furniture Australia’s leading furniture retailer.
Call it Amart DNA. It’s hard to describe, but you know it when you see it.
ABOUT THE ROLE
As a Despatch Manager, you will lead a team of 3 to 10 people, and you will be responsible for planning and delegating the workflow of each day. You’ll love staying active, as this role requires frequent heavy lifting, and you’ll need to champion the focus of safety in the workplace by educating and leading your team on the policies and procedures in place to keep them safe at all times.
You’ll be responsible for making sure your team consistently provides exceptional customer service, and you’ll do whatever it takes to make sure each customer leaves your dock with a smile.
Safety is paramount at Amart. As a Manager you are expected to champion the importance of working safely at all times. You will contribute to the safety management system by identifying hazards and engaging with the Safety Advisor to review safe work procedures. You are responsible for ensuring your team are trained in all applicable safe work procedures and that they adhere to these at all times.
Your previous leadership or supervisory experience within a warehouse environment will set you up for success in this role. You’ll lead by example and challenge your team to grow in their skills, by identifying areas for improvement, and recognising them when they do well.
With many large items of stock constantly coming and going from your dock, you will need to be organised, have attention to detail, and be able to communicate effectively with your team.
