Strategy Manager - Fast growing Tech and Logistics Business - Central / West London with hybrid working arrangements

£70k-£90k plus bonus, benefits


Our client is one of the UK’s most exciting scaleups operating within the logistics-tech space, recently referred to as a ‘Soonicorn’ with over 8 million people having used their services across the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Ireland. They are backed by a world class PE company giving them the ability to truly realise their vision; to build the world’s most efficient logistics technology.

Technology is at the core of everything they do. It drives continued improvements to their customer and transport partner experiences and minimises their impact on the environment through reducing miles travelled on each and every job. Helping to reduce carbon emissions has always been high up on their agenda and they are proud to say they've achieved carbon neutral status on all of their transport moves.

They are in scale up mode with plans to significantly increase market share and their talented teams internationally.  Although they are driven by technology, they know it’s their people that are at the heart of their success.  They think big and think differently, and they know good ideas can come from anywhere and anyone.  

Their Strategy Team makes it easy for the business to achieve amazing things by defining their strategy as a business, and the plan for the business to achieve that strategy.  They take responsibility for strategic initiatives, balancing strategic thinking with a hands-on get-stuff-done attitude.
They are a trusted thought partner to all areas of the business, delivering high quality and practical intelligence to support improvements and achievements across all areas of the business. They ensure that the business has appropriate ambitions, maintaining a focus on where we can create value and ways that we can maintain a high growth trajectory, and we maintain a fast pace of progress within the team.
Joining the growing  strategy team means you’ll get a broad range of exposure to a wide range of projects to help them deliver on strategic corporate initiatives.  There will be plenty of opportunity to work closely with the CEO, gain genuine commercial exposure and help shape the team and develop and grow into more senior roles as the team expands.
