Why join this business? 

Our client is a well-established, Australia-wide road transport company, that has operated for over 40 years. This is a quality oriented business who focuses on long-term relationships with their clients and puts an emphasis on delivering in full, on time. The organisation has multiple depots around the country, with the Brisbane depot being an integral part of its overall operations. Road transport and freight is one of this country’s most vital industries. It provides consistency and reliability and as such, a long-term career in this industry can be forged. You will play a key role in an essential business that keeps Australia moving. 

About the role:

Our client is seeking an experienced Office Manager to join their depot team in Richlands, Brisbane. This role will see you interacting with drivers, customers and staff on a daily basis. You will be responsible for:

  • Overseeing and co-ordinating the Brisbane administration team;
  • Ensuring paperwork, consignment notes and manifests are entered correctly into their freight management system;

  • Managing and assisting in the recruitment of new staff;
  • Update the Administration Roster and approve leave in line with business requirements; and
  • General administration duties including dealing with general customer enquiries and taking pickups.
This organisation requires its team members to be “all in”. You’ll be managing and leading a busy transport depot and you’ll be picking up the phone when it overflows as well.  We are looking for someone who gets in there and gets the job done. 

About you:

To be successful in the role, you will have at least 5 years’ experience as an Office Manager overseeing and coordinating a team. You will also have:
  • The ability to prioritise and review individual and team workloads to ensure that timelines are met;
