As a business, Hermes is driven 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 positions, especially in our Field Manager roles where you will engage with our couriers to ensure the delivery of parcels to our customers.

We are currently looking to recruit a Field Manager to support our peak period over Christmas, starting 1st October through to the end of December 2019.

First and foremost our field manager makes sure that the courier teams deliver our customers parcels
They are the point of contact for the couriers when they have issues, cannot attend work or need guidance
Ensuring that all work that has been allocated has been picked up by a courier. Where this is not the case working on finding solutions to ensure that our customers' delivery is achieved
Review tracking data to ensure that couriers are on track and where relevant step in to check if there are issues and offer solutions
You will also be responsible for courier recruitment, "on-boarding" and coaching

All in all, it's a busy job!

The ability to deal with people and conflict
A "can do" attitude
The ability to think on your feet and come up with solutions to problems
A good geographical knowledge of the area
An approachable manner with a strong desire to get the job done
An understanding that a role of this type is not your average 9-5 and will involve working on a weekend

What support will the field manager receive?

Sub depot and main depot teams will be on hand to offer assistance as required
Hermes is committed to developing its people and you will have the backing of your management team and the wider business to really achieve in your role and career with the business

What will make you our ideal candidate?
As an agile member of our team you will work out of a number of locations within your geographical area. This flexibility is key and the successful candidate must appreciate this
As part of your role you will review and own the service performance of self-employed couriers and be responsible for delivery coverage within designated areas. Your ability to demonstrate experience in assessing results and implementing change will make you stand out to us
Our job is for someone who is able to efficiently prioritise pressing needs where there isn't an obvious solution and provide feedback to the wider business. Your experience in leading teams and ensuring end results will be vital
Availability to work across the Christmas period
Previous experience of managing a team, coaching and interviewing/recruiting people is essential. Please do not apply if you don't have this crucial experience as unfortunately, we will not progress your application.

We understand that our Field Manager position is a demanding yet rewarding role, it's a lot of responsibility and we are looking for colleagues to join us who have the experience and desire to drive a great customer experience in a fast-paced and challenging environment.

We can offer you a competitive salary, company car and 26 days (pro-rata) annual leave.
