About the role
In this role you would join the central Process Improvement team and be responsible for driving cross functional process improvements that support enhanced service delivery, growth, efficiency and other key strategic initiatives. Reporting to the Business Transformation Manager, this position will require you to scope, plan and execute various improvement projects across the business. You will be expected to deliver a number of large projects a year whilst also providing coaching and support that enables business areas to improve quality and exercise continuous improvement.
You will be involved in projects of varying sizes and complexity, sometimes several at a time, often covering our three UK sites in Swindon (where the role is based) as well as Birmingham and Manchester. There will also be projects defined by group that will involve working with partners across France, Spain and Italy and will involve travel to these countries. Duties will include coaching teams in Problem Solving techniques and Visual Performance Management as part of our internal Lean deployment. You will champion the identification, design and delivery of process improvement initiatives and ensure post implementation benefits are monitored and measured.
Ideal candidate profile
As a Lean practitioner you will have a number of completed projects in your portfolio that have delivered tangible benefits and change. If this has been in the leasing or finance sectors, then so much the better. You will be a natural networker, able to build strong lasting relationships across all business areas and at all levels, to quickly understand business objectives and priorities. We need someone experienced in applying the principles of Lean, such as 5S, Visual Performance Management, A3 Problem Solving, Flow Management, Waste Reduction and Coaching. You will also be experienced in facilitating workshops to map current and future processes and have the analytical/statistical skills to make recommendations for improvement.
What's in it for you?
We are a friendly bunch – more human than corporate and you will find our office environment welcoming. You will be given the perfect setting to do your work to the high standard you want, as well as the opportunities to develop your own career.
