Who are we ?

Are you a dynamic and motivated team player who works well as part of a tight knit team? Do you come from a logistics or transport related background? If so, then why not join our Supply Chain Solutions Hub in Grangemouth as our new Logistics Coordinator.

Here at Saint-Gobain, our Supply Chain Hubs are the operational backbone of our business, ensuring both our branches and customers have what they need, when they need it. For our Grangemouth Hub, that means servicing the UK’s largest House Builders in Scotland. It’s no small feat, but one that’s essential to our success and the exceptional customer service we provide across our many brands.

What impact will I have in this role?

As Logistics Coordinator, you’ll support the distribution of customer orders, deliveries and branch replenishment in the region, maximising the operational and logistical performance of the fleet. Building and maintaining successful relationships is therefore essential, as you’ll need to liaise with customers, colleagues and supplies to ensure we consistently improve our logistical efficiency and provide an excellent customer service.

Your key day to day duties as Logistics Coordinator will include:

  • Planning and scheduling customer delivers for optimised routing efficiency, liaising with Operational colleagues and local branch network as necessary.
  • Supporting the logistics process through managing and delegating order tickets to relevant drivers, fulfilling compliance at all times.
  • Maximising logistics efficiency to ultimately drive down logistics cost to serve through activity optimisation.
  • Demonstrating commitment to continuous improvement to improve efficiency and reduce waste.

What kind of person are you looking for?

First and foremost, we always want to recruit talented people that align well with our values and way of working; we innovate, we’re Agile, we’re Open & Engaging, we care about and know our customers, and we all try to act as entrepreneurs. As part of the Saint-Gobain group, we’re also committed to empowering and developing our own people wherever possible. So alongside the following key requirements, we’d welcome applications from dynamic and motivated individuals who work well as part of a small team:

  • A flexible and motivated individual, with a great attitude.
  • Safety conscious, with understanding of transport related legal compliance
  • Prior delivery planning experience of construction materials or similar.
  • IT literate, particularly with Microsoft Office suite (e.g. Excel).
  • Good Geographical knowledge of Scotland – desirable.

The world of work is changing, and at Saint-Gobain we are open to new ways of working in order to attract talented people to our business. We understand that everyone has different needs and commitments. Therefore, we are very open to discuss any flexible requirement or need that you may have for this role. We can’t guarantee to meet all requests for flexibility when we are recruiting. But, we promise to listen.
