The purpose of this role is to build and improve the fleet management capability of an existing operation. The role holder is to design, implement and embed fleet management processes and procedures. The output is to provide the on-site team with a sustained ability to maintain set target levels of vehicle availability that enables the service to provide fixed quantities of vehicles matching the customers demand plan. This role should implement standard, repeatable practices that ensure vehicles in the fleet are being maintained in line with their maintenance schedules so the service has sufficient quantities of each vehicle variant available to be used to meet their demand plan.

Main Tasks:
- Delivery of site specific communications
- To ensure people under their control are following all HSE procedures
- To build working relationships between the Leconfield team and wider vehicle availability teams to allow better sharing of best practice, problem solving and to build lasting networks between personnel in similar fleet services
- To train on-site staff on new processes, procedures and systems enabling them to become competent in managing their fleet unaided

- Introducing the increased use of IT systems, data and Management Information to raise the fleet management capability on site
- Introducing increased use of visual management techniques
- Introducing standardised processes
- Introducing new reports using Qlickview
- Ensuring work areas remain safety compliant
- Ensuring staff have and comply with PPE requirements

- To create, implement and embed processes and procedures the on-site team will follow in future to sustain vehicle availability
- To learn processes and procedures in use on other similar fleet management services (TUF, ARMCEN, FEPS) and introduce these to Leconfield bringing wider business standardisation
- To develop in partnership with other fleet management services new improved ways of pulling and presenting information to assist fleet management - Introduction of Qlickview to display information from various data sources in a meaningful way that the on-site team can easily use to manage their fleet and make decisions on
- To introduce methods of visual management that assist in decision making and highlights the relevant management information
- To introduce measures of effectiveness and teach/train the on-site team what data they need to be monitoring and how often to effectively manage their fleet
- To introduce improvements to the routine maintenance planning and tasking processes that will increase the level of available fully fit vehicles the service can pull from to meet demand profile, reducing the percentage of vehicles being required back-to-back in the demand schedule
- To introduce improvements to the priority decisions for returning vehicles that require repairs before they can be used again in order to best utilise workshop capacity to best meet the demand schedule
- To introduce rigorous regular fleet planning processes that allow the team to match the latest release of customer demand for the forthcoming period in line with planned vehicle availability. This process should highlight customer demands that will be difficult to achieve due a potential lack of available vehicles due to either planned maintenance / anticipated unplanned repair volumes and will assist in re-prioritising the workshops activity to increase availability to reduce the risk of not being able to meet a demand
- To introduce processes that allows the on-site team to view and monitor the condition and history of each vehicle easily. To train the team on what information to look for, how often and how best to present requests to have identified poor vehicles swapped out of the fleet
- To build good working relationships with the local customer in the aim of improving the visibility of demand further into the future allowing more robust planning
- To improve the commercial awareness within the team building their confidence of customer dependencies to help drive customer behaviours and priorities that will provide a smoother running service for supplier and customer
