At easyJet, we have a fleet of over 250 aircraft, operating in excess of 800 routes across 29 bases in Europe – and we’re still growing! We’re entrepreneurial, not constrained by today’s way of doing things.  We find new ways to solve old problems so we can continue to offer low fares to our customers. As well as being smart, digital and dynamic, we’re diverse, low-carbon and responsible.

What’s the role?

What we’re looking for:

  • Senior management experience within a matrix environment.
  • Extensive aviation/logistics/supply chain management experience.
  • Proven leadership capability, particularly coaching and developing high-calibre individuals.
  • Deep understanding of airline engineering supply chain systems and processes.
  • Well-developed contractual knowledge/capability and first class negotiating skills.
  • Understanding of all regulatory requirements in contract management.
  • Strong financial awareness and knowledge of airline supply chain accounting
  • Excellent communication and influencing skills.  Able to build strong personal relationships and credibility at all levels, both internally and externally.

What’s the deal?

  • We run on freedom. You’ll have the space to get on and succeed.  We trust people to make professional decisions.
  • This is a vibrant place to work. Our pace makes us exciting. Join us and you’ll experience challenging work in a fun environment.
  • Our people are at the heart of our success, and we love sharing it with them. Travel perks, individually tailored benefits, bonuses linked to both your and the company’s performance – you’ll enjoy it all here.
