You will be responsible for processing all orders and deliveries for our international sales division as well as retail division for orders that do not touch the UK 3PL.

This means order processing for ex-works orders from out UK warehouse as well as organising different shipments (Sea- and Airfreight) from various international locations (mainly China) using external partners.

  • Receive POs from the retail and international team and add these to the system to allow the 3PL or Factory to work these orders per customer requirements
  • Process purchase orders on the Internal purchasing system (PSM)
  • Book in deliveries with retailers, using the retailer’s procedures and tools
  • Organise the shipments with designated freight forwarders as per agreed rate and service schedule
  • Tender non-standard Sea- and all Airfreight shipments to designated list of Freight Forwarders
  • Control shipments from factory ready date until customer confirmed receipt
  • Ensure all shipping documentation is completed and provided in time to allow a fluent and fast movement of goods and warehouse receipt
  • Update internal systems (PSM) with all relevant shipping information such as dates and documents
  • Proactively compile reference documentation to ensure required information for other departments is available in a structured and "self-help" manner
  • Be the initial point of contact for both internal and external partners to deal with [and effectively resolve] shipment queries.

What you’ll get–

  • £32,000 Basic
  • Fantastic office environment
  • Opportunity for progression
  • Staff discounts
  • Other excellent benefits
