    At Matthew Clark, we supply drinks to thousands of pubs, restaurants, bars and clubs across the country. It’s a complex operation – and it’s all-go at our depots. As an Assistant Transport Controller, you’ll help us plan deliveries and assign work to drivers. As the biggest name in the industry, we’ve got lots to offer in return: fantastic rewards with a wide range of benefits – plus the chance to grow your career with a fast-expanding business.

     

    What you’ll do

    Every day, you’ll send our lorries and drivers off to deliveries across the region. It’s vital that they follow health and safety rules and have the necessary training. Helping the Transport Controller to mastermind the whole operation, you’ll produce detailed reports and handle a range of admin but ultimately, it’s all about good organisation and making the most of resources. Think you can make sure every customer gets the supplies they want? It’s a tricky challenge – but we’ll reward you well!
