Assistant Operations Manager



Full Time Contact: Human Resources Reference: d8ZVqo1ALcX7R7bRe9B0fO

Have you ever wanted to work in a business which has a turnover in excess of £35million per year and a varied product portfolio?

Does your job satisfaction come from leading staff and developing them to deliver a product that you can be truly proud of?


If the answer to both of those questions is yes, then we may just have the role for you!

We are currently looking for an Assistant Operations Manager to join our West Cumbrian depot and help us deliver our services in Workington, Whitehaven and across North Cumbria, including the Lake District National Park.


Based on the North West Coast of one of the most beautiful counties in the UK (and yes we are biased!), our West Cumbrian depot operates 84 buses and employs over 180 staff.


We are looking for someone to join our successful team and work with the Operations Manager to not only develop our wide product of services, but more importantly the team of Supervisors and Drivers who deliver those services on a daily basis.


You will be tasked with taking a lead on staff engagement, using all of the tools and resources that working for a FTSE250 national company brings, whilst also making sure that we are a local business responding to the needs of our local people.


Customers form a huge part of what we do also, and so to be successful you will need to be customer focused and know how to take their feedback (no matter how good or bad) and channel that in to making positive tangible improvements to our products.


You don’t necessarily need to have worked in a bus depot previously, but we are looking for someone who has previous supervisory or managerial experience, who likes a challenge and who wants to be part of a good-humoured team.


Closing date for applications is Friday 19th November with interviews to be held shortly after. Please apply with your CV and a covering letter by this date to Lynn Farish, PA to the Directors at
