Job Description

Title: Logistics Manager

Company Name: Prima Printing Pty Ltd

Vacancy: 2

Job Location: Melbourne, Bayside & South Eastern Suburbs

Employment Status: Full Time

Dear Prima’s Future Logistics Manager,

Congratulations on stumbling across your DREAM role.

Prima is in a growth phase of our companies story, having recently turned 4 we believe we have already taken the title of the Largest Consumer Print Manufacturer in the Southern Hemisphere.

Before we talk more about the role we believe it is our bragging right to mention that not only are we a growing entity here in Australia, we are a MULTINATIONAL company with MEGA facilities located across the US run by our parent company District Photo (4 to be specific). Additionally, our sister facility Harrier has 2 more facilities located in the Czech Republic and UK. We are the high achieving, up and coming little sister of the group.

So the role… Not only are we looking for an assertive and strategic individual to manage the relationship with our couriers but we also need someone who is BORDERLINE OBSESSIVE with Excel and finds a sense of joy working through millions of lines to validate complex billing from our carriers.

What would a day at Prima look like you ask?

Well apart from indulging in treats in our monthly morning teas, patting the furry friends around the office or reading through our employee comic book your role will provide you with the variety so many of us need.

Just to name a few…… you could be:

  1. Having a face to face meeting with our carriers to discuss their performance objectives (this may not always be the positive discussion we hope for)
  2. Conducting RFP’s to ensure we are getting the best value from our carriers for all of our internal skus
  3. Auditing products to ensure that that the correct materials are being used and match up to our specifications
  4. Designing shipping rules for new products
  5. Elbow deep in excel spreadsheets using your ADVANCED excel skillset to critically analyse sheets and sheets of data to validate bills
  6. Working with our CS Team to answer queries for our customers with carriers
  7. Making suggestions or providing feedback on how we can be BETTER (we always want to be evolving)

With Prima being in our growth phase your ability to mould and influence the Logistics function in our business will likely be unlike anywhere else you have worked, and certainly more than any other grad program can offer. With a significant annual spend and the ability to directly impact our P&L you will play a key role in the Prima Management Team.

The Nitty Gritty? (Absolute essentials)

  • ADVANCED skill set in Excel (we will test you – unfortunately, the trusty sum function won’t cut it on this occasion – when we say advanced, we mean it)
  • An understanding of the MARKET PLAYERS and their offerings
  • EXCEPTIONAL communication skills – you will need to command a room and be assertive if and when required
  • The need for CONTINUOUS IMPROVEMENT- we don’t believe in recreating the status quo part of our blood is innovation and we believe this is the biggest driver of our growth
  • STRATEGIC thinking- we are handing you a KEY function of our business we want you to not only ensure its running efficiently but ALSO maximizing profit
  • A true TEAM PLAYER our secret source to success is OUR people being able to work collaboratively and understanding we need each other to be successful is crucial

The things that will get you BONUS points:

  • Proven TRAINING and/or a QUALIFICATION in Logistics
  • A display folder full of EXCEL TRAINING Certificates
  • Existing RELATIONSHIPS with carriers
  • An understanding of the COSTING of shipments
  • Prior ACCOUNT MANAGEMENT experience

Now since this letter is about you... let me talk about whats on offer:

  • A company that PRIDES itself on its culture
  • A place in the Prima FAMILY with a motivated, innovative and smart team
  • A chance to GROW with a relatively young organisation
  • Career PROGRESSION opportunities
  • Investment in YOU and training opportunities
  • Yearly company BONUS scheme
  • Monthly MORNING TEAS for all of the team
  • Staff DISCOUNTS 
  • Staff EVENTS 

We don’t discriminate here at Prima, we have had huge success with individuals bringing their existing experience but have been equally as successful investing in grads and individuals looking to be given an opportunity to grow and build their career. The non negotiable for anyone we hire into our management team is that they are smart, passionate and hungry.

Now what are you waiting for… quickly draft up the perfect cover letter that tells us why we shouldn’t wait a moment longer to give you a letter of offer - Unfortunately your application wont be considered if you skip this step – It’s step 1 of our selection criteria.

WE cant wait to learn a bit more about you.

From your future employer,

Prima Printing
