Job Vacancy Depot Manager - St Austell, Cornwall

8th August 2016
We have an exciting Depot Manager vacancy at our Dainton Self Storage depot in St Austell, Cornwall.

Dainton Self Storage is the largest self storage provider in the South West of England with thirteen facilities currently, three more facilities coming online within the next year and ambitious plans for expansion over the next five to ten years.

At Dainton we strongly believe that our staff are our greatest asset and as such you will play a pivotal role in the development of the St Austell business park. The business park has a mixture of commercial units, self storage units, offices and vehicle parking. You will be given the operational autonomy, backed by the Area Manager, to grow and develop the site to achieve ambitious, yet realistic targets and goals.

Skills and Experience

Totally business focused, you will be dedicated to the provision of first class customer service. Having gained experience at a similar level in the retail, hospitality or sales sectors, you will be driven to succeed with a desire to exceed expectations. You will also be computer literate and possess strong selling and communication skills and have an understanding of marketing.

The successful candidate will be expected to have the ability to use their own initiative and to work unsupervised.

The role is approximately 50% administration based and the remaining time dedicated to the up keep and maintenance of the site, so a general willingness to undertake additional physical work will be an essential requirement. A forklift license would be a benefit, but not a requirement, as training can be provided.

Required Education

  • High school or equivalent.
  • Five years customer service experience.
  • Drivers license.

Benefits and Working Hours

You are required to work a 45 hour week 8.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and some weekend cover may be required.

There is a basic salary of £19281.60 with realistic OTE of £24,000+ with activation of the bonus scheme after a successful probationary period.

Holidays are 28 days per annum including all Bank Holidays.

You will preferably live up to a 20 minutes travelling time (approximately) of the Depot and hold a full driving license.
