What you'll do
You’ll lead a team of full and part-time employees on a sorting line in one of our mail centres, supporting them to reach their full potential and upholding the standards of service that our customers expect. You’ll pursue performance and financial targets and you’ll carry out trend analysis to identify areas for improvement.
