Description

We are Amazon; we pioneer.
Since 1995, we've been pushing the boundaries of possible further and further.

Our entire business works hard to delight our customers ' from the second an order is placed online to the seamless coordination of that order behind the scenes, we strive to stay agile, fluid and intentional. That can be described in one of our core Leadership Principles, which is Bias for Action. This means that our teams band together, roll up their sleeves, and aren't content with just standing still. We're aiming to become the most customer-centric company on Earth.

To help us meet increasing demand, and to keep our world-class service running smoothly, we're currently seeking an experienced Sortation Area Manager. We're seeking someone who's organised and motivated about driving meaningful changes and improvements in how we coordinate resources in our busy Fulfillment Centers.

Your responsibilities:

You will join the fast-moving Amazon Logistics team, so the role you play will have a considerable influence on your specific site. At a high level, you will be responsible for optimising our transportation, sortation and delivery network plans, with the ultimate goal of greater efficiency in all processes.

You'll be in charge of the daily management of our Outbound parcel delivery operations. Therefore, you'll need to keep the following in mind: continuous improvement of any and all processes is a fundamental element of our operations culture.

Day-to-day, you'll manage, control and direct a sortation area, either in receipt of parcels, or parcel delivery. While you're at it, we'll rely on you to exceed productivity goals, as well as the development and maintenance of a stable delivery operations team. Just as importantly, you'll manage and drive effective implementation of the Amazon Business Plan in your sphere of influence. That will include: monitoring, auditing and reviewing staffing plans, schedules, quality initiatives, performance levels and process change initiatives on-site.

Finally, you'll champion and maintain a strong culture of Health and Safety best practices amongst your team: this will involve oversight and review of practices on the ground in your Fulfillment Center.
