JOB VACANCY

Shipping Co-ordinator

We have been a leading figure in publishing for more than 500 years. We have always been a forward-looking organization, maximizing the technology for the day, but the digital revolution is bringing enormous change, fast. That same spirit of adventure and entrepreneurialism is critical to our future success. In a fast-changing publishing landscape, OUP welcomes the inquisitive, the inventive, and the ambitious; people who challenge the conventional, and pioneer the possible.

About the Role

This is a great opportunity to someone to gain experience within a busy logistics office on a global scale; working with branches and customers in many countries across all transport types.

  • Follow up on all shipments to ensure smooth flow to destination
  • Liaising between OUP stakeholders, customers and freight forwarders to ensure timely, accurate delivery of goods to destination
  • Process accurate shipping/freight reports and logs, create purchase orders against supplier invoices
  • Request freight quotes (air/ocean/road/parcel) and POD’s record data locally.
  • Troubleshoot shipping issues and queries efficiently
  • Support the Global Freight & Logistics Supervisor as and when necessary, attend team meetings and produce local KPI data.

Essential:

  • Previous administration experience
  • Logistics/freight knowledge and/or experience

Benefits

We care about work/life balance here at OUP. With this in mind we offer 25 days’ holiday that rises with service, plus bank holidays and Christmas closure (3-days) and a 35-hour working week. Our Kettering office has a discounted onsite canteen. We also have a great variety of active employee networks and societies. 

We help make your money go further by contributing to your pension up to 12%, offering loans and savings schemes through our partnership with Salary Finance, in addition to travel to work schemes and access to a wide range of local discounts.
