Situated in a rural location, where you will require your own transport to get there, this customer focussed role involves liaising with existing and new customers to administer their order; ensuring all paperwork is processed accurately for the warehouse to despatch orders on time. Responsibilities include taking accurate details of sales enquiries, processing confirmed sales orders through the company software stock management programmes, book haulage and processing of sales invoices

Working in an open plan office, you will be working closely with colleagues to very detailed, exacting procedures and deadlines.
