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 Shift 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 Fulfillment Center. 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.

· A Bachelor’s degree or equivalent qualification
· Experience managing a medium to large size team
· Demonstrable track record of problem-solving, alongside strong analytical capabilities,
· You possess close attention-to-detail: you can establish root cause analysis, while manipulating and extrapolating any data, as and when necessary,
· Previous, accomplished performance in overseeing project delivery: always within scope, timeframes, budget, while meeting required standards of quality,
· Solid command of Excel, with data analysis skills to back this up,
· You’re an excellent communicator, with fluent written and spoken English, alongside the ability to communicate at all levels of seniority within a large organisation,

About the company

Amazon strives to be Earth's most customer-centric company where people can find and discover virtually anything they want to buy online. By giving customers more of what they want - low prices, vast selection, and convenience - Amazon continues to grow and evolve as a world-class e-commerce platform.

Founded by Jeff Bezos, the website started in 1995 as a place to buy books because of the unique customer experience the Web could offer book lovers. Bezos believed that only the Internet could offer customers the convenience of browsing a selection of millions of book titles in a single sitting. During the first 30 days of business, Amazon fulfilled orders for customers in 50 states and 45 countries - all shipped from his Seattle-area garage.

Amazon's evolution from Web site to e-commerce partner to development platform is driven by the spirit of innovation that is part of the company's DNA. The world's brightest technology minds come to to research and develop technology that improves the lives of shoppers and sellers around the world.
