COO – Aviation Cargo and Ground Handling Expert

Your responsibilities

In this challenging executive position, directly reporting to the Head of Global Cargo Operations, you assume global responsibility for the conceptualization, design and implementation of warehouse facilities and cargo terminals worldwide, geared to efficiency gains achieved through state-of-the art logistics engineering and optimal usage of material handling equipment and systems. You define the strategy, policy and standards with regard to the optimal warehouse design and equipment usage within the entire Group, all in line with established IATA rules. The building of new terminals is equally relevant as the re-engineering and improvement of existing warehouses, for which you take the project leads. You constantly screen the market for the different material handling systems presently available, to keep pace with the latest innovations and trends. As recognized expert for productivity gains and global knowledge holder of the most suitable handling equipment, you stimulate and invite Station Managers of the Group to constantly review and improve the layout and process flow of their warehouse operations.

Your identity

You have a robust educational background in the field of industrial engineering, logistics or automation, ideally complemented by an MBA or equivalent higher degree. Your long lasting practical working experience has preferably been in the air cargo business and/or operational cargo management, but could also be gained from working with a leading supplier of handling systems and equipment. A thorough understanding of cargo ground handling logistics processes and extended know-how of material handling systems is equally important as your familiarity with the IATA regulations for cargo ground handling. You have a conceptual mind, a visionary view and the capacity to put things into practice. From your own experience you fully understand the challenges of a high “volume/low margin” business and the thereof resulting necessity of lean and mean processes. Your large management experience enables you to develop projects from the scratch to its physical outcome. You are willing to travel half of your time to different locations around the world, so as to be permanently in the field of action. Fluency in written and spoken English is mandatory; you have been used to work in an international environment and are able to easily adapt to different cultures and business behaviours.

Your prospects

You are looking for a challenging and rewarding activity in a dynamic and vibrant international environment? You would like to work for a tier- one market player in the aviation ground and cargo handling services industry, enabling you to unlock your full potential? You are seeking a new professional challenge, offering the opportunity to leave traces and to move things forward. Then, seize this unique opportunity to become part of a global team, characterized by high professionalism, clear commitment and full dedication. This position offers you the possibility to work rather autonomously and independently within clearly defined rules. Given the international dimension of this role, your permanent residency and nationality are irrelevant. You will get a local contract from the Group location next to your home residency. The compensation package and employment terms are attractive and line with the importance of this function for the Group. Thrilled and interested?
