We are currently looking for an experienced Fleet Manager to be based from our Birmingham office overseeing the utilisation of our sizeable rental fleet on a national basis.

We are one of the industry’s largest employers offering excellent career opportunities and are currently looking for someone with a fleet management background to join our Central Rental team delivering first class pro-active service to our rental customers and working with our maintenance teams to forward plan maintenance schedules to ensure down time has minimum impact on our customers business.

The Central Rental team is responsible for fulfilling our customer needs in respect of the timely allocation and provision of an appropriate, clean and compliant rental fleet, together with supporting rental documentation. With the overall aim of enabling our customers to minimise their fleet downtime due to a lack of rental fleet availability. The team uses their judgement to make decisions and take actions which maximise rental fleet efficiency and minimises operational costs.

They will understand the vehicle rental market in order to anticipate and pro-actively manage any supply and maintenance challenges in order to be seen as the supplier of choice to our customers.

This person will also be great at developing internal relationships as they will work alongside our maintenance teams to make sure vehicle down time is both minimised and cost effective; to this end a technical background would be advantageous with a minimum understanding of vehicle maintenance scheduling and being able to negotiate with internal maintenance teams and a dealer network.

Attention to detail and cost management will be paramount to the success of this role as you will be responsible for coordinating the off and on hire rental fleet by asset class and geography as well as predicting demand trends by season and size of potential customer order. You will then develop strategies to minimise the maintenance costs associated with the fleet.
