Working with the Senior Fleet Compliance & Driver Development Officer and the Nominated Transport Manager, you will also play a key part in developing training programs, audit plans and policy.
You will possess a high level of tact and diplomacy when dealing with sensitive issues with the ability to influence the behaviour of others by modelling expected behaviours and values and through use of effective persuasion and influencing skills.
You will have the ability to work collaboratively, identify, and adapt to change positively.
