The Programme 

As a Shift Manager, you’ll have responsibility for the day to day management of a Delivery Station, providing leadership to Operations Supervisors, Operations Assistants and Delivery Service Providers, managing external agency relationships and performance.  
 
This team will work in a highly collaborative environment that’s more start-up than big company. We’re in uncharted territory, doing what’s never been done.

You will need to thrive and deliver results in an ambiguous, fast paced, dynamic environment.
