Mackenzie Stuart is working with a leading global provider of Freight Forwarding, Supply Chain Management and Warehousing Services.
They provide multi-modal forwarding solutions, high-end contract logistics service and supply chain optimisation solutions worldwide. They have successfully turned around their CentralAfrican operation and as such are now looking to grow from their strong platform in Africa as a whole – with Retail, Hi-Tech and Commodities as the key verticals.
Due to plans for restructuring and subsequent growth, the business requires an experienced Operations Director level candidate with a background in the Freight Forwarding, Supply Chain Management and Warehousing.
Targeting leading clients within select industry verticals – and by optimising internal operations – you will utilise your high level relationships and experience to help set the structures in place to follow strategies that are put in place by the regional team leadership team. As the candidate’s role develops in the company – they will be expected to actively contribute to the development of these growth strategies.
This is a role that combines both a testing team leadership environment and the need for a dedicated ‘hands-on’ approach across East Africa. Experience in a number of key leadership roles is preferred.
Obviously the position is based in a very competitive environment and so any experience in areas such as this would be preferred.
The business is seeking someone with a background in Senior Level Operations positions (Director & Above) – Air & Ocean Freight but critically any experience in Supply Chain Management work will be of great assistance.
The company requires experience of the African market as an essential pre-requisite for the role
As the candidate will be tasked with leading the function across the state, any experience at this level will make any candidate stand out from others of a similar background.
Applicants MUST speak BOTH English AND French have previous experience in the Freight Forwarding and Warehousing Industries respectively (individuals without these pre-requisites will NOT be considered)
Degree level educational qualifications will assist any worthy candidate.
Due to the large number of applications if you have not heard anything within 14 days then unfortunately you have been unsuccessful.
