As a business, Hermes is shaped by our four values of Do the right thing, Dare to be different, Strive for more and Be customer obsessed. We run our business by these values and they are reflected in all of our roles, but particularly our Area Manager – London South

This is a critical and highly demanding role in our operation where you will report in to our Director of Depots and you’ll be joining a team of 5 other Logistics professionals; who are responsible for managing our Depot network across the country.

As Area Manager – London Southt, you will be responsible for the performance of five of our Depots: Gatwick, Maidstone, Weybridge and Southampton.

Each Depot has a full site-based Management team but it will be your responsibility to ensure that your Depots are performing against their operational and budgetary targets by providing leadership and direction to your Depot teams

You will also be responsible for delivering strategic improvements and deliverables for the growth of the business, being responsive and agile to operational demands, with the ability to identify issues & solutions through data and people engagement. You will manage projects that are specific to your area and also those assigned to you from our Head of Depots that will make the best use of your experience. Where necessary, you must be able to support and develop your Depot Managers, so that they are fully capable of managing their sites.

You will work closely with the wider business and be part of senior planning teams to ensure that your area is prepared for any increases in parcel volumes or operational change that could affect area performance or deliverables.

You will be client facing (to a certain extent) so being familiar with the working practices and expectations of major e-commerce businesses would be beneficial.

We cannot overstate how key this role is for our operation, you are the link between Board and Senior Leadership and Operational Management, you must be a leader who can inspire and develop staff. Alongside this very necessary skill, you ideally will have budgetary and cost control experience, a broad understanding of forecasting and volume planning tools and the ability to manage multiple sites across a broad geographic area.

If you have worked in an area role previously, have held/hold a CPC or O’ Licence and have a thorough understanding of Health & Safety Legislation, we want to hear from you.

We understand that our Area Manager position is not an easy job, it’s a lot of responsibility but we will offer you a Really Competitive Salary, Bonus, Company Car or Car Allowance, 34 Days annual leave (including Bank Holidays).

We will contribute 3% into your pension, give you peace of mind through life assurance and also provide income protection cover. On top of this, we offer a great range of flexible benefits that aim to provide something for everyone, so whether you want a discount with a retailer,  insurance for your new gadget, or a cash back health care scheme that can include an online GP service, we’re sure we’ve got something for you.

This position is ideal for someone who wants to make a difference and be responsible for positive change. Improved and more efficient ways of working are encouraged. This is a great time to be joining us, we’ve grown year on year and we have plans in place for future growth which give you the opportunity to grow with us.

There are lots reasons to join Hermes, but don’t just take our word for it, let our people tell you why they love working here; “Fun and fast-paced”, “Great choice of benefits”, “Great training and development”, “New challenges every day”, “The company  is growing fast”, “Working with like-minded people who are passionate about what they do”.
