RES is a dynamic and fast-growing business with exciting ambitions to rapidly scale up its operations. To support this growth and continue to deliver excellence to their customers, they need to enhance the business management systems across their global operations.

As the Head of Operational Excellence, you will work closely with both the Support Services and Construction & Development divisions to help deliver the RES global 'Future State' execution programme.

You will be responsible for:

  • Developing a high-level, company-wide framework which is simple to understand, clear and consistent

  • Working with existing functional and operational leads to ensure quality is embedded within the divisional culture and its strategic importance with respect to delivering client-focused results is both understood and applied

  • Using existing forums and capability to develop a communication and education programme that ensures personnel take ownership and personal accountability for the standard of work

  • Developing clear and useable systems and processes for continuous improvement

  • Creating an approach to ensure the practice of effective international collaboration, peer evaluations and change management

  • Working with Key Account Managers to develop an approach to measure how RES is perceived in delivering operational excellence globally

To succeed, you'll need:

  • Knowledge of quality management, business performance and management systems in a complex organisation

  • Experience working in the construction, utilities, renewables or manufacturing sectors

  • Knowledge of the concepts of change management and continuous improvement

  • Strategic thinking and the capability to think from multiple levels, horizons, disciplines, perspectives and regions

  • Experience decomposing and solving challenging business problems, ideally using advanced Excel models

Confident that you can add value but not 100% sure you tick every box? There is no such thing as the perfect candidate. RES prides itself on developing its people. So, however you identify, and whatever experience you have, please apply if this is a role that excites you.
