FILLED: Warehouse Manager

Location:
Calgary, AB
Industry:
Distribution

PLEASE NOTE: This role has been filled. We thank all applicants for their interest.

Today our Western Canada office is thrilled to be working with yet another new client on a supply chain leadership role! This company is a not-for-profit distributor based in Edmonton, AB with a proud history in their industry, currently launching a new Warehousing Distribution facility. As part of this effort, they’ve tapped Argentus to recruit a Warehouse Manager! 

Working out of Calgary, AB, this Warehouse Manager will take on operational oversight and hands-on leadership duties for the company’s new warehousing facility! In other words, this is an excellent greenfield opportunity to help set processes and KPIs in a new warehousing environment  (approx. 7,000 square feet). In this role, you will lead, coach and develop a small team to deliver high performance in the warehousing function. You will help set up inventory organization and KPIs, help execute the company’s ongoing ERP implementation as they work to stand up the facility, and then lead the warehouse to a high standard of efficiency and effectiveness in servicing the company’s clientele. With oversight for the warehouse budget, you will help to plan the warehouse based on space requirements, efficiency, and optimization. You will work to develop and set a strong customer service culture in the warehouse, and work to communicate performance against KPIs as well as any issues to the company’s leadership. Once operations and processes are well-established, you will manage ongoing performance while working to develop and implement continuous improvement initiatives that continue to drive value through the company’s warehousing and distribution function. 

In short, this is an excellent role for a high-potential warehousing / distribution professional who wants to make their mark with a greenfield opportunity. It’s a chance to develop people and processes to help drive efficiency and help a great organization expand their capability. It’s a perfect role for someone with at least 5 years of Warehousing / Distribution experience, ideally a high-potential Warehouse Supervisor looking to move up into their first Warehouse Manager role, or an accomplished Warehouse Manager who’s looking to work hands-on and help stand up a new facility. Experience with establishing processes and KPIs is a must, as is experience executing ERP implementations.
