•    As a qualified vehicle engineer (with membership of a professional motor industry body), you'll have previous transport management experience, with a background in working in a fast-paced workshop environment. You will also hold a transport CPC or equivalent.
•    An excellent knowledge of transport legislation and experience in operating computerised fleet management systems.
•    A can-do attitude, with the capacity to manage your own workload and work effectively under pressure. You will also enjoy taking management responsibilities when necessary.
•    A customer-focused approach to all that to you do, with great communication and interpersonal skills.
