The Role

We have opportunities for Lean Six Sigma Delivery Consultants to join our Retail Efficiency Team in either Forbury Place, Reading or Penner Road, Havant. The role holders will focus on cross Retail projects and will lead the ongoing development of the Continuous Improvement Programme. This role will also be pivotal in the planning and preparation for the company following the proposed merger.

Essentially the role will involve working with the Retail leadership to identify opportunities through the lens of Lean, Six Sigma and Systems Thinking to drive value across the end to end processes of the businesses, where it is being lost, and the associated root causes requiring elimination. You will be looking for opportunities to implement efficiencies and in doing so you will determine the change and necessary governance that drives improvement across the end to end process. As part of this you will collaborate with operational leads to prioritise areas for improvement.

Once areas have been identified you will lead strategic initiatives across multiple teams to deliver change. This could be leading project teams, working alongside those on the ground to coach them in lean working or using a top down approach to look at how we can standardise a process to make sure it performs at the optimum level.

The ideal candidate for this role will be a black belt in Lean Six Sigma, have an understanding of Systems Thinking, have business change experience and also the necessary experience to be able to demonstrate how they have used continuous improvement methodologies previously to identify and then enact efficiencies. Therefore, you must have a proven track record in delivering large business change projects and be able to clearly evidence your previous success in this type of role.

Stakeholder management skills are essential in this role as collaboration across different functions and 3rd parties will be key to project success. Furthermore, you should possess good communication skills across all mediums and be comfortable presenting recommendations to various audiences and be able to utilise appropriate reporting in order to influence and demonstrate progress against targets.

It is also worth noting that the successful candidate will be expected to do some travelling between the Reading and Havant sites and potentially other sites. On average this will be potentially 1-2 days per week.
