This role allows for units to be prioritized through the workshop based on what is required by the customer but it should be done through the system without causing any inefficiencies or downtime on the floor.
  • Working with the workshop manager, the workshop development manager, IT and the compound to start utilizing the system so we can eliminate the use of priority lists and utilize the VPC target dates. This will also eliminate a lot of interactions between the workshop and customer operations as the system can be trusted.

  • This role is about continuous improvement. The tasks completed each day, week and for each customer need to be reviewed with the Head of Customer Operations and the VPC manager to see how they can be improved and ensure that all support from other departments are being utilized to improve the processes.



  • Initially working on priority listing with the compound (until the system is operational).
  • Liaising with the subcontractors on workload and priority jobs (if non-technical) – this will move to the stores overtime – need to review the process for subcontractors.
  • Highlight priority, open overtime services, open estimates, holds that are late or not closed to the supervisors/estimators that need completing.
  • Conversions – scheduling kits production with HGV and arranging for the testing to be completed after fitout is done and all the information is feedback to customer operations.
  • Update the customers system if required based on information from the supervisors (where the update is not technical / not SIMS as this is technical).
  • Preparing weekly updates from the workshop in advance of customer meetings.
  • Efficiency & Shortfall reports & Softworks Adjustment – initially completed but work with GOH to automate until we can eliminate some of these tasks and can read this from the system. (ND is currently working with SG on this and it’s down to approx. 10 mins per day – potentially GOH can improve further until the system is working.
  • Daily operations calls with Morning call – Customer Ops Update – Hire Drive calls with Customer Ops / Transport
  • Potentially some work on the wages but sign off remains with the Workshop manager – potentially around updating banked hours reports – holidays updates – sicks certs to payroll/HR etc.
