    The Operational Excellence Program is the ground-breaking initiative designed to deliver transformational change in our business, like nothing before. A root & branch diagnostic review has been undertaken and a new design or ‘best way’ of working in our workshops, hire offices and depots has been introduced.  We aim to become; safer, more efficient, more productive, and more reliable and vastly improve the financial performance of every depot. Each area of development can be measured and assessed, leaving opportunity for continuous improvement. The Project Manager is the ‘change agent’ responsible for preparing and guiding the depot to prescribed levels of ‘operational excellence’.

    The Project Manager should have an intimate knowledge of how an asset rental depot works. They should understand both the asset and the customer ‘journey’ through our depot business, plus have a keen eye for detail supported by good analytical skills.

    The job holder will have an excellent understanding of the roles and responsibilities within the depot and be able to work closely with depot management to coach and develop their operational competencies.   Having high levels of influence to motivate, challenge and inspire complex stakeholder groups, including Executives, Regional leaders, Consultants, L&D and Project Managers.

    The Project Manager would be working within a national team, assigned specific locations to bring into the Operational Excellence Program and latterly oversee and support their progress to attain ever increasing levels of ‘OpX status’ (bronze, silver, gold).

    What can we offer you in return? You’ll be joining a highly successful FTSE100 company, the UK’s largest equipment rental provider.  We provide an Industry leading flexible rewards package including generous holiday allowance (with the opportunity to buy and sell annual leave), life assurance, retail discount scheme, employee recognition awards and a great Company pension scheme.
