  • The effective management and leadership of the sites teams
  • Hold weekly departmental meetings

Health Safety & Compliance

  • Safeguard all colleagues, customers and visitors safety

Service Standards

  • You will proactively implement and manage excellent customer service standards and strategies
  • Ensure that all customer complaints are managed in line with company policies

  • Senior management experience in a diverse multi faceted operation
  • Excellent leadership skills with a focus on engagement and development
