Depot Operations Manager - Passenger Transport


c£35,000 + benefits

MVP is working with the UK's largest provider of accessible passenger transport services to recruit a Depot Operations Manager for one of its major depots in Birmingham. Reporting to the Head of Operations, you will be responsible for managing operations across a number of different transport services, ensuring that service excellence is delivered at all times, and that the operation is fully compliant with relevant legislative requirements.

You will provide strong leadership to the existing depot team (150+ staff), in an evolving and fast-moving environment. There is real scope for development of services and the depot's client base and you will be expected to play an outward-facing role, fostering excellent relationships with user groups, clubs, societies and other external bodies. A serious focus on the maintenance and evolution of excellent standards of Health & Safety is also required.

Candidates for this role should have:

- Previous experience of successfully managing distribution or logistics operations. Experience of managing passenger transport operations would be an advantage, but is not absolutely necessary.
- Exceptional management and leadership qualities in order to motivate, inspire and develop your operational teams.
- You should also be resourceful, clear thinking and able to function with the minimum of direct supervision.

You will need to be able to relate well to passengers, being sensitive to their needs and sympathetic to their difficulties.

There is a real sense of community and team work within this organisation, and this is an excellent chance for the successful candidate to really make their mark, with long-term progression opportunities available for the right individual.
