Wanted: New Right Hand Man (or Lady)

....to work in our busy Gravesend, Kent shipping and forwarding office....

The pay is nothing special, but you will find the work interesting and varied.

We are a shipping, freight forwarding and warehousing company established in 1994, and like to think pretty good at what we do.

I need someone to help keep me on the straight and narrow.

You must be from a shipping or freight forwarding background, articulate, numerate, have a good working knowledge of IT, resourceful, organised, good with people, mature in attitude and flexible.

You will never be bored but sometimes challenged. One day you might be arranging a pallet delivery to Newport Pagnell and the next organising the shipping of a Mclaren F1 super car to New Zealand.

As far as I know everyone who has done this job (only 3 in the last 20 years) enjoyed it. Age is not important. The oldest doing this job was 65; the youngest, 18.  

The reason for the ad is that Charlie is retiring for a well deserved rest after over forty years in the business. 

They will be big boots to fill but if you think you may be the one to fill them, please write an e-mail telling me about yourself to glen@wavecrest.co.uk
