  • It’s essential that you enjoy working as part of a team
  • You’ll be the kind of person who provides solutions and will do whatever it takes to get the job done properly and on time

  • It is very much a hands-on position and you will be getting stuck in with the import operations as well as overseeing the workload of the team
