Founded on deep values, entrepreneurship and genuine desire to think harder and act smarter for customers, XL Express is ready to launch the next phase of growth.  To ensure the organisation has the operational foundations to support this growth and to thrive through this expansion, we are seeking candidates for the new role of Chief Operating Officer (COO).

Critically, this role will lead effectiveness and execution in operations designed to ensure growth goals can be achieved and customer and brand promises delivered.

To be successful, you will have relevant qualifications and extensive experience in a similar role leading complex transport, supply chain and logistics operations. You will have led operational improvement and supported exponential growth.  You will be a collaborative, values-led and authentic leader who is as comfortable rolling up your sleeves as working on strategy.  Your experience is likely diverse with exposure to a private company environment.
