YOUR ROLE IN A NUTSHELL
The Sample Logistics Manager is a critical role in our newly renovated content production studio and stockroom.

You are fully accountable and able to direct the sample lifecycle, which spans from retailer through the production cycle and back to retailer. This will include being able to physically move stock from delivery trucks to stockroom storage.
You will ensure all samples and props are logged, prioritised, prepared, photographed, enriched and passed to the post-production team and back to the stockroom, all within the agreed SLA timeframes. Not forgetting, and to the highest of quality standards. You will quickly be able to confirm the status of any sample or prop, and where it is located in the building.
You escalate to the Content Lead well in advance of an issue looming. You are able to report on sample volumes, and these reports are accurate. You confidently use technology to create efficiencies when it comes to sample tracking and coordination, and can assist in integrating and training your team in new technology and associated processes when required.
