About the Department

Operations are responsible for keeping the lights on; we are at the front line on the Network. If we find a fault, it is our responsibility to respond to the fault, and dispatch our skilled teams to fix it as quickly as possible. We work in all hours, and through all weathers, ensuring our customers are never without power.

What is the Role?

As Scheduler, you will be responsible for planning and scheduling the operational teams around a four-week plan that ensures priorities are managed effectively by staff and that all work delivered meets both programme and customer requirements. This will involve managing competing priorities, ensuring all work is risk assessed in line with Company standards, identifying opportunities for future improvements, identifying and recommending appropriate actions to schedule and dispatch work as we all as highlighting the risks of failure to complete jobs on time.

You will ensure efficient optimisation of resources and manpower so that the Region can achieve business targets, reduce costs and travel time as well as staff development by supporting the Scheduling Manager with arrangement of any team coaching or training requirements.

You will support and embed a process of routine checks to guarantee that job closures are completed in a proficient manner, highlighting any anomalies and taking appropriate action to ensure that they are dealt with. It will be your responsibility to collate and process all required paperwork and submit to the relevant parties once full validation checks have been undertaken.

What do I need?

Previous experience of planning and scheduling work combined with your strong Microsoft office skills will enable you to effectively analyse performance data and use scheduling programmes as well as gather, edit and input data to create and produce detailed reports that drive productivity, efficiency and highlight any areas of concern. Strong attention to detail and organisational skills will also be crucial.
