Due to the 24/7 nature of our Container division in Hillsborough, a decision has been made to move the current Dispatchers to a 3/3/3 rotating roster. This has effectively created an opportunity for a new Dispatcher to join the Operations team, reporting to the Branch Manager.
The successful Dispatcher will be responsible for the scheduling and dispatch of relevant trucks for all full container movements within the Canterbury region. This will be on a 3/3/3 roster pattern (3 x dayshift, 3 x nightshift, 3 x days off). Approximate hours of work for these shifts will be 6am-4pm (dayshift) and 5pm - 4am (nightshift). It is anticipated the position will be fully office-based (no requirement to drive a truck during quiet periods).
Along with ensuring the most efficient use of resources by managing driver's workload and allocating daily jobs, the Dispatcher will also manage relationships with key customers and will be tasked with other general dispatching and office duties.
The ideal candidate will have previous experience in a dispatching role and/or scheduling know-how. Top notch computer skills are required as data entry and GPS tracking form a large part of this role. An understanding of the transport industry would be an advantage as would a good geographical knowledge of the wider Canterbury area.
Health & Safety is a key focus at Hilton Haulage, so the successful applicant must be prepared to comply with all safety-related rules, policies, procedures and directions given and ensure the employees under their care adhere also. This includes observing customer site rules and taking all reasonable steps to prevent harm to themselves or others.
If you are an enthusiastic person, with great communication skills, the ability to pick things up quickly, excellent attention to detail and the ability to prioritise, then we want to hear from you.
On offer is the opportunity to join a successful and growing company where your efforts will be recognised. Excellent long term career prospects available for those who are driven and committed. Full training will be provided.
