Summary of position

This is a unique opportunity to run two different warehouses out of the same location. The Cartons & Labels portion of the warehouse accounts for raw material inventory and finished goods, while the Pharmacy & Medication Adherence operation is primarily a receive, pick/pack, and ship operation of products we distribute and sell.

Both warehouses include accountability for inbound and outbound shipments, storage of material and products, and movement of goods to customers and our head office location.

If you love the idea of leading a team and managing two different operations, all within a new 145,000 sq. ft. facility, then this position will be of interest to you.

If you get excited by planning, evaluating, and executing improvement and optimization projects in a warehouse setting, then this position is a perfect fit for you.

If you are a natural leader with a passion for upholding a strong health & safety system, ensuring the timely receipt and delivery of goods, and a confident negotiator and decision maker, then you’ll want to consider this opportunity.

  • Ensure all applicable Health & Safety Management System policies & procedures are followed.
  • Ensure requirements of our Quality Management System are followed.
  • Ensure Environmental (ISO 14001) Management System policies & procedures are followed.
  • In conjunction with the team-lead, oversee the day-to-day operations of the Cartons & Labels portion of the warehouse, which encompasses the receipt, storage, management, and outgoing shipment of raw materials and finished products.
  • In conjunction with the team-lead, oversee the day-to-day operations of the Pharmacy & Medication Adherence portion of the warehouse, which includes the receipt of finished goods, processing and preparation of customer orders, and outbound delivery.
  • Create and maintain effective and collaborative relationships with internal and external suppliers and customers.
  • Provide leadership to a team of warehouse colleagues, including hiring, delegation, training, performance evaluation, disciplinary actions, and termination.
  • Plan warehouse layout and space requirements in order to prevent loss or damage, and to achieve full warehouse optimization, considering factors such as product turnover, size, and weight.
  • Recommend facility design and equipment requirements to enhance quality and efficiency, and manage these improvement activities and plans.

If you’ve got:

  • Diploma or degree in a related field.
  • Forklift license and valid driver’s license.
  • 5-7 years of direct work experience in a warehouse management function.
  • Direct working knowledge of operations, warehouse management, and transportation management.
  • Direct knowledge of WHMIS and other safety systems.
  • Experience with radio frequency ID systems (RFID), bar code systems, and electronic data interchange (EDI) will be required.
  • Experience with SAP is an asset.
