Royal Mail is looking for a highly driven individual, with a flair for thinking outside of the box, to join its Senior Operations Team as the Plant Manager at our Scottish Distribution Centre near Wishaw.


About the role

Reporting into the Head of Processing, this key operational role is responsible for ensuring our Plant runs smoothly, delivering the processing plan in a safe, customer focussed and commercially driven manner. This exciting and fast paced role will give you the chance to make waves throughout the business by driving and implementing national change initiatives, developing the business plan for 2018/19 and working to achieve all unit and personal KPI’s.


As the Plant Manager, you will lead a diverse team of middle and senior managers, holding overall responsibility for performance management, health and safety and performance reporting. Holding a budget of c£20m, you will be required to manage several key stakeholders both across the Group and externally.


This is truly an exciting, challenging and rewarding role at the very centre of our operation. As the Plant Manager you have a real chance to make a genuine difference to the business and gain national exposure.


About you

A self-starter, you will have significant leadership experience at a senior level and the ability to manage both tactical and strategic elements. You’ll be an experienced operational leader with experience in a similar environment. As well you will have drive, determination and a willingness to embrace and embed change. Communication is key to this role, and you will be able to manage senior stakeholders and engage a large, unionised and diverse workforce.


A strong financial acumen would be a huge advantage, as would project management, decision making and excellent interpersonal skills. Due to the fast paced nature of the role, we are looking for someone who can remove barriers and make change happen in the unit. 


A degree level or similar qualification is desirable, but most of all you must be a strong leader, an inspirer of people and be able to demonstrate a proven track record of success.


Assessment dates – we are planning to assess for this role during w/c 19th November.
