Operations Management

Our Operations Managers help us to consistently deliver for customers by achieving maximum productivity from the processing, delivery and collections centres. Across the three areas of Processing, Delivery and Collections, they co-ordinate and guide their teams, ensuring everybody feels supported to have a big impact every time they come to work.

We're in a period of transformation, focusing on a more digital and automated approach, and our managers have a key role to play in that growth. By staying curious and informed about new ways of working, they help their team succeed and make the most of every opportunity. They also need to be adaptable to solve problems at a fast pace as we rely on our Operations Managers to foresee and overcome potential obstacles.
