Do you have the ability to lead the transformation of UK wide transport networks?

This is a really meaty job opportunity for a transport planning and transformation expert and would be a great career move for someone with the right level of resilience and character, wanting to land a high profile role in the Midlands. This retailer is bucking the trend and posting strong profits and growth forecasts in a highly competitive sector.

This is not as straight forward as the title would suggest…..there's a lot in terms of leading the future of the National Transport network and its plans. You will be fully accountable for developing the transport end to end planning strategy, focussing on reducing transport movements across the network and delivering against both cost and service targets to maintain the highest levels of availability for their customers.

Your network will consist of 7 Regional DCs, 1 National DC, 18 Manufacturing sites, 500+stores, 3 Consolidation Centres and a growing numbers of suppliers in Primary.

You will lead a full assessment of current systems and capability in the area of transport planning, tasked specifically with identifying the actions and investment needed to build the future of planning in the form of a central control tower. There needs to be a real mix of systems knowledge, modelling, continuous improvement focus, project management and excellent stakeholder management.

You'll be joining a key player in the market who is a growing and energetic organisation. They are looking for transport planning specialists that can demonstrate a proven track record in transport planning, solutions design, strategic and operational modelling and commercial viability. You will have a reputation for delivering transformation projects through an engaged and capable team. It is hoped that you'll have experience in a similar sized transport network and have expert knowledge of Paragon, GTS, Microlise and Isotrack.

Package includes a base salary £85,000 to £90,000, Car/Car Allowance, 25 days holiday plus stats, bonus scheme up to 20%, family private healthcare, pension scheme and staff discount.
