Freight Costs Team's key responsibility is to understand the agreements with carriers and book the incoming invoices based on them. The team works in a turbulent environment and changing conditions. The team leader handles the communication with business partners, sets up the routines and supports and develops team members. SAP system and its module Transportation Management (TM) is the core of the process. We are looking for a leader who can be an inspiration for the team, approaches the bottlenecks of the process actively, comes up with new ideas and represent the Centre of Excellence to Currys’ customers and colleagues. Will you take this challenge?

"Short description of the role from team manager’s point of view is that even though Freight Costs team is one of the smaller ones, tasks are quite challenging. There is a lot of communication with our business partners where assertiveness must be used to achieve all our goals. The new colleague needs to understand the financial part as well because setting up of the new routines is influencing our results. Possibility to cooperate directly with the business partners together with setting up the new routines and controls make the role very interesting." Zdenek, Logistics manager
