Logistics Job Description and Logistics Manager Person Specification


To work in logistics, you will need a multitude of different skills and qualities. These include an ability to communicate effectively, (both with internal team members and also external distributors, stakeholders, manufacturers, and suppliers), an ability to solve problems whilst under stress and pressure, and also effective problem-solving capabilities. The success of the logistics workflow process will be heavily dependent on your ability to carry out your role on time, and to a very high standard. To work within logistics, or to become a Logistics Manager, you will need to see the bigger picture, continually seek to improve and develop, and also be able to manage a variety of different tasks concurrently.

The Role of a Logistics Manager

Logistics Managers are responsible for facilitating and overseeing the delivery, storage, movement and distribution of materials, goods, and products within very strict timescales. Generally, a Logistics Manager will be responsible for managing a warehouse, taking care of inventory control, transportation, distribution, managing team members, conducting appraisals and also planning ahead to ensure problems are kept to an absolute minimum within the logistics supply chain and workflow. To become a Logistics Manager, you will need a unique set of skills and also be able to answer a variety of tough and challenging situational and competency-based interview questions, many which are detailed on this page.

4 IMPORTANT TIPS FOR PASSING A LOGISTICS OR LOGISTICS MANAGER INTERVIEW

TIP #1 – To work in logistics you need great attention to detail skills, an ability to work as part of a team, the determination to meet very strict timescales and also the ability to solve challenging problems. During the logistics and Logistics Manager interviews, you will be assessed on your ability to do all of these things. Make sure you have examples ready of previous situations you have been in where you meet all of the skills and qualities that are a match for the job description.

TIP #2 – In preparation for your logistics interview, we strongly recommend you prepare for basic questions such as:

  1. Tell me about yourself?
  2. Why do you want to work for us?
  3. Where do you see yourself in 5 years’ time?
  4. Why do you want to leave your job?

Although these are basic logistics interview questions, this is your opportunity to show the interviewer you know their company well, you have a genuine passion for logistics, and you also plan to stay working with them for a long period time.

TIP #3 – Don’t forget to work on your interview technique and your body language in preparation for your logistics or Logistics Manager interview. Whilst it is essential you prepare great answers to the common interview questions listed on this page, do not neglect interview technique. The best way to prepare for your logistics interview, is to conduct a mock interview, whereby you practice answering all of the questions listed on this page.

TIP #4 – Our final tip for passing a logistics or Logistics Manager interview, is to have 4 great questions ready to ask at the end of your interview, Most of the candidates will not ask any questions. However, if you have four intelligent and smart questions ready to ask the panel, this will serve to finish off your interview on a positive note and hence increase your chances of success!
