You will manage the procurement and disposal of IHC’s fleet vehicles, maximising residual value and minimise repairs and maintenance through appropriate fleet rotation. In addition, you will manage vendor relationships and retain oversight of repairs, maintenance and accident recovery whilst providing key stakeholder engagement. This role will also involve the designing, delivering and monitoring reporting on IHC’s vehicle functions including operations, optimisation, and health & safety.

  • Knowledge and understanding of, and an interest in, the motor vehicle industry.
  • Experience managing motor fleets within fiscal constraints.
