At Loomis our staff form the basis of our customer and our company success.

Hiring the best defines the process of how we recruit and vet prospective employees.  We strive to hold ourselves to high standards and we want people who feel the same way to join us.

Our work is sensitive and is done in a high-security environment so strong character and morals are important to us.

The Role

As the Operations Manager you will be responsible for the efficient and safe day-to-day running of your branch.  You will ensure operational KPI's are met whilst striving to achieve the branch and Company financial targets driving our SLA’s.

You will work closely with both the Cluster Branch Manager and Shift Managers to develop and deliver operational plans ensuring continued high level customer service to your local area.

Our employee’s safety is paramount so you will need to work alongside your colleagues in Risk, Health and Safety and Compliance whilst supporting your Shift Managers through coaching and mentoring.

At all times you will act as an ambassador for our business championing our values and 'customer first' approach.

A CPC and experience of managing an O licence would be a significant advantage in this position along with understanding of the transport licence.

We don’t expect our employees to come to us read made for the role.  We will provide you with full training (both on and off the job) as well as continued development throughout your career with us.

About You 

This is a vital role within the branch network and requires skills and expertise in a number of areas.  Above all you will need to be a great team worker with a high degree of resilience.  You will need to engage with our employees and support them as they take on our day to day challenges.

You will also need to be a confident communicator, have a high level of integrity and attention to detail, as well as the ability to work in our branch network partnering with other departments as required.

Specific requirements

We also have some specific security criteria that you will need to meet:

  • You must be able to pass a criminal record check as well as a personal credit and ID check.
  • You must also have a 10 year employment/unemployment/educational history that we can check and verify.
  • An SIA licence would be beneficial but not essential as we can support you in attaining one.

If you take pride in what you do, care about the people you work with, and have aspirations to be the best that you can be, then you’ll fit right in.
