OPERATIONS CO-ORDINATOR

Window Furniture – Prestigious Brand – Eastbourne

This company is moving some of its production to Eastbourne to be closer to a main supplier, although their showroom and main office will remain in West London. Manufacture and customer service are to a very high standard and they’re often involved in interior designer-led projects and able to produce bespoke items to order.

THE ROLE

Variety and adaptability are at the heart of this position. Reporting direct to the Managing Director, you’ll be dealing with suppliers, customers and other team members every day. Anything that comes regarding stock (including a monthly stock-take), supplies, orders and delivery will come into your tender care – and that includes delivery notes and export papers. Mostly you’ll be working on your own initiative and making things happen on time, every time – and you also be maintaining all the site records so that everything is in order and there are no surprises.

There are practical elements as well: Packing goods and sometimes being handy with a drill or screwdriver and being able to know which screws and fittings are compatible, so the customers gets exactly what they need first time.

THE CANDIDATE

There’s probably no other job quite like this, so exact matching experience isn’t what’s needed – apart, probably, from familiarity working in a production/manufacturing environment working with deadlines and workflows. Otherwise you’ll need to be:

– Happy with a high attention to detail and very organised

– Able to work on your own and make decisions – although there are other group team members close by

– Clear communicator with customers, suppliers, and other team members

– Confident user of all the Microsoft Office Suite products – or similar

– Practical by nature – Able to use a drill, a screwdriver and check screws and fittings

GEOGRAPHY

The offices and main production unit are based in Eastbourne.

SALARY

Annual salary will be in the region of £25,000.
