You’ll have access to a variety of high street discounts, as well as a cycle to work scheme, a workplace pension and many other perks.


What you’ll do on a typical day:

  • Ensure that all drivers are compliant with EU and working time directive regulations and that any accidents/incidents are investigated in a timely manner
  • Lead your team to meeting and exceeding operational objectives, such as service provision, productivity and fuel KPIs
  • Reconcile weekly statistics and ensure that KPI dashboards are fully complete, accurate and up-to-date


What you need to succeed at GXO:


  • A track record at a supervisory or management level within a complex, fast-paced transport operation
  • Excellent knowledge of driving compliance and associated regulations (a CPC would be ideal)
  • The ability to work with large amounts of data, analysing and extrapolating this into an appropriate format
  • A strong personality with the ability to effectively manage drivers, push for operational excellence and challenge the status quo
