Supply and Delivery Distribution Controller
South Western Ambulance Service NHS Foundation Trust
This job is now closed
There has never been a better time to join the Trust's Supply and Delivery Service as a Supply and Delivery Controller. We have just introduced a new scanning system to manage the consumables both on site and out at station, so crews don't need to spend time ordering stocks from us. This is now done by us against agreed min/max stock levels.
The role of the Stock Distribution Controller is also a gateway to the organisation with opportunities to develop your career with us either within the Supply and Delivery Service or the wider Trust in both patient-facing and a variety of support roles.
This is a fixed term role for 12 months, however we are a growing team and there might well be other job opportunities past the 12 months fixed term contract.
Main duties of the job
Supply and Delivery Controller main duties include:
- Ordering, receiving and storing stocks.
- Processing orders both in house and at station level.
- Delivering goods out to stations, to include pharmacy products.
- Carrying out checking and other quality control processes.
- Supporting the returns and disposal processes.
- Making suggestions for improvements.
We are in the process of making changes to the ways in which we work in all areas to include Consumables, Pharmacy and Deliveries so as we are developing our service and are looking for committed people to be based from Skypark Site in Exeter, to receive deliveries, pick orders and cover drivers getting goods out to to stations across the Trust. Working hours are generally Monday to Friday 08:30 - 16:30.
