Bonus For Us
Relevant education/experience in Supply Chain Management
This is a role with a planned progression path. The initial job scope will be kept very simple. You will learn the most fundamental operational aspects of the business starting from unpacking of products, stocktaking and picking & packing of parcels. On the job training will be provided. The starting salary will be $1200.
Once you master the assigned tasks ( Level 1 tasks), become more efficient, and am able to cope with additional workload, we will train you on more advanced tasks. Once you have picked up the skills and are able to complete the additional tasks with minimal supervision/guidance, you will be given a salary increment, according to how well you perform, immediately from the next month and onwards.
As an example, if you already possess the skills and knowledge to complete Level 1 and Level 2 tasks and are confident of completing them at a high level of competence [such as < error rate], then you can look forward to a Level 3 salary from the 2nd month and onwards.
It is a requirement to master and complete the preceding Level tasks before you can proceed to the next Level. We believe a manager needs to understand most (if not all) aspects of the business before he/she can become competent. While part-time/full-time packers may be hired to do the fundamental packing jobs as the business grows, and you'll be tasked to manage them, you are also expected to help with those tasks should there be a need to.
We are looking for someone whom we can groom to help manage the business. Eventually, you are expected to take on Level 4 tasks and beyond. As such, the initial salary is deliberately kept low to discourage prospective candidates who think they cannot progress pass the initial Levels.
