Location: Workington, Cumbria
Our lovely engineering teams need you... and so do our amazing customers!
Okay, so now we've grasped your attention with the sympathy vote, let's get down to the detail of why we'd love you to join us as Engineering Manager in our Workington Depot for Stagecoach Cumbria & North Lancashire.
You've probably seen some of our 53 vehicles driving around West Cumbria - from Workington to Carlisle, Keswick to Penrith and everywhere in between - transporting our fantastic customers over 3 million miles every year!
Our customers rely on our services to get them to work, the high street, to hospitals, to days away and nights out - and our engineering teams make sure our vehicles are in tip top condition to do just that.
It's a big team of mechanics, coach builders, electricians and cleaners who do some incredible work to make this happen everyday, meaning we already achieve reliability scores of 98%. And who knows, perhaps you can get us to 100%?
"What will I being doing?" we hear you cry! You'll be leading a team of professionals who are pretty nifty with a spanner or mop - both of which are as equally important. Let's face it, none of our customers want a dirty bus that works, or a clean one that doesn't.! You'll have the responsibility of supporting, advising and managing the team on a daily basis to maintain and repair our Modern fleet of 53 buses. It's a really important role within our depot, so we'll trust you to ensure vehicles are presented to the high standards that our customers want - you'll have autonomy over resource management, stock and people. That means you'll be getting stuck into ordering, managing inventory, recruiting, training and health & safety... so variety will be aplenty!
And speaking on variety, we're a multi-site operation so you won't be staring at the same four walls every day! Perhaps you're happy sticking at Engineering Manager level and that's fine by us, but if you do want to progress we'll support you every step of the way. You'll have the opportunity to work alongside our current director Paul Lee - gaining exposure to work which will develop your skills and experience to allow you to progress your career further.
It goes without saying that there are a couple of things we need in our prospective Engineering Managers... You don't have to come from a bus background (but we wouldn't be put off if you are!), but you will need to have worked in a related field - such as the truck / haulage industries in an engineering setting. People management won't be completely new to you either. You don't have to be an existing manager, but you'll need to be able to evidence how you've managed teams, irrespective of their size.
Sounds like the job for you? So if you love working in engineering, have a passion for leading teams, and want to do both with the incredible Stagecoach family in Cumbria & North Lancashire, please click apply by Friday 31st May!
