JOB POSTING

Position: Warehouse/Receiving Manager
Organization: 100km Foods Inc.
Location: Toronto, Ontario

What would it feel like to be part of a team that is making a difference in the local food landscape in Ontario every day?

To support farm-fresh, local food that chefs and restaurant patrons can really savour?

To support local farmers to access a growing market and emerging economy?

To be part of building a great organizational culture, where people can be themselves and change the way business is done?

If that door opened in front of you, would you walk on through?

We hope so!

100km Foods

We’re 100km Foods, and we connect local farmers with urban markets. With our help, farmers get access to large, urban markets and customers get access to delicious, farm-fresh food at local restaurants, hotels, and retailers. It’s a win-win for all involved.

We deal fairly with farmers, allowing them to set their own prices, and we seek to treat all of our employees, suppliers, clients, and community with a high standard of fairness and cooperation. That led us to become a certified B Corp (ever heard of that?).

Working with us, you’ll get to be a part of that purpose. You’ll work with great people who care about what they do, who bring a positive attitude to work, and who like to have fun. You’ll bring your whole self to work in a casual (no suits here!), friendly, and supportive environment.

Warehouse/Receiving Manager

As our new Warehouse/Receiving Manager, you will use your skills to lead a team of warehouse packers, develop and implement new warehouse procedures and be an integral part of our growing management team.

Success in this role means the following:

  • Effectively leading a team to efficiently pack orders of fresh, locally grown products for our discerning group of customers
  • Developing and implementing an effective inventory control strategy in conjunction with the Wholesale Manager
  • Being responsible for receiving products, processing vendor invoices, and communicating with vendors regarding order discrepancies

The ideal candidate for this position will have great people skills and experience managing a team, have excellent written and oral communication skills, and be very detail oriented, but also able to step back and see the big picture. They will envision and lead a team in executing procedural improvements. They will have high emotional intelligence and treat internal and external partners with respect and professionalism.

Although this is not a primarily physical position, the successful candidate will need to be able to comfortably lift and carry up to 50lbs, be comfortable on their feet for extended periods of time and be prepared to get involved and assist with packing/receiving/storing of product as needed.

The Practical Stuff

You’ll work from our Toronto office 2pm to midnight, Monday to Thursday, and a four hour shift on Friday may be required. We offer a base salary, group benefits, and above all, the chance to do meaningful work on a great team.

Qualifications

You have a desire to make a positive difference in the world. In addition, these qualifications will help you stand out:

  • Experience working in a warehouse/logistics environment
  • Experience managing and supervising a team
  • Proficiency in MS Office (Word, Excel etc.)
  • Experience and proficiency in E-commerce environments is an asset
  • Experience with SAP Business 1 or other ERP software is an asset
