Apprentice Traffic Operators will assist the Traffic Operators in running our very busy transport operations facility. Traffic Operators are responsible for briefing drivers on what work they will complete, arranging the collection and dropping of shipping containers to ports, maintaining the correct records and managing the utilisation of the company fleet.
You will learn all of the various processes and procedures required for the safe and efficient running of container transport operations, how a Heavy Goods Vehicle fleet is maintained and kept running, the various methods of transport and how to run them as well as the skills needed to effectively communicate with customers both external and internal.
There are no formal qualifications for this post as we will provide a robust training program for you. The applicant must have good communication skills though as well as be willing to work in a busy office environment. The Transport Industry is very busy and keeps the country moving 24/7 so a flexible approach to working hours is essential, this may include weekend work.
