Operations Coordinator

€28,000 - €30,000

Are you an excellent communicator with great interpersonal skills? Enjoy solving logistical puzzles? Our operation in Rosslare has been a great success and we’re increasing our capacity, along with the recent introduction of passengers. We are looking to recruit motivated, enthusiastic, and customer-focused individuals to join our busy Operations team in Rosslare, as Operations Coordinators. That’s where you come in…

Ensuring the vessels are full on departure, leaving on time and that our customers receive the best service possible. We need you to be a strong administrator who is comfortable communicating with lots of colleagues including the Vessel Loading Officer, Customer Services and Check in Teams. Due to the nature of our business, it’s not a Monday to Friday gig, you’ll need to be flexible & on hand to work various shift patterns, including weekends and late shifts, sharing the workload with other members of the dedicated team, during our busiest periods. 

Variety is said to be the spice of life and you will have plenty of variety day to day. You’ll be tasked with ensuring the ground operations run smoothly when the vessel is on berth. This involves coordinating all aspects of a port call, actioning operational and technical requests from vessels and various entities. Checking all trailers before departure for damages and confirming the booking details match those stated on the system, whilst producing the loading lists for vessel departures. Computer skills including familiarity with Microsoft Office, Outlook and Teams are needed, as well as an ability to pick up new programmes quickly would be advantageous, as you will be updating the IT systems, keeping the trailer park data accurate.

We are looking for a good team player, who can use their initiative if working alone, combined with a positive attitude and the ability to remain flexible in a changing environment, should the sailing be delayed or late on occasion. We don’t necessarily need you to have a background in shipping, but we do need you to be driven, hardworking and confident with a willingness to succeed. If you are detail orientated and possess good planning/organisational skills, then the team can provide all the bespoke training you need in the role to ensure that you enjoy working for us and are the best you can be. Previous knowledge of transport operations would be beneficial.

So, if you are looking for an exciting opportunity, enjoy working as part of a team, willing to take responsibility and make informed decisions, then please get in touch with us.
