I have had very good service from all at the Glasgow Office. They found me a temporary position, which I have now been in for more than a year. As a candidate, you are made to feel that nothing is a bother, which is not the case with some other organisations. They are very prompt at returning your calls and my weekly payment is never late or wrong. I do, however, speak more to Michelle. You are always very pleasant and friendly to deal with, which makes life a lot easier. Thank you Stafffinders for helping me.
Transport Scheduler Jobs
Transport scheduler jobs entail working in the road transport industry where they organise vehicles and routes on a daily basis to ensure that deliveries to customers are on time. Transport scheduler jobs may also work in passenger transport.
Duties for a Transport Scheduler
- Scheduling and supervising vehicles.

- Analysing existing systems and developing new ones to improve efficiency.
- Preparing staff rotas to ensure the best use of drivers.

Although transport scheduler jobs normally work 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, they may have to work evenings or weekends or be on call. Many firms run 24-hour operations and transport scheduler jobs may have to work shifts. The workplace of transport scheduler jobs may be a warehouse or a traffic office, linked to a vehicle depot.
Salaries for transport scheduler jobs range from around £19,000 to £36,000 per year.
Transport schedulers should have good forward-planning skills and be able to organise work schedules, have good spoken and written communication skills and be flexible when dealing with difficult situations. Transport scheduler jobs should also have good numeric skills and be able to pay attention to detail, feel comfortable working in a high pressure environment and be confident using computer packages, including spreadsheets.
Most transport scheduler jobs work in the freight industry for delivery organisations, such as the Post Office, retailers or warehousing and distribution firms. Transport scheduler jobs can also work for national or local bus companies or train operating companies.
For transport scheduler jobs training is usually on the job and transport scheduler jobs may be able to work towards NVQs/SVQs Levels 2 and 3 in such subjects as traffic office, road passenger transport, distribution, warehousing and storage and mail services.
