Porterbrook Leasing Company specialises in the leasing of all types of railway rolling stock and associated equipment. Based in Derby with a corporate Head Office in London, the organisation is well underway in delivering a transformational change programme under the leadership of Mary Grant, Chief Executive. The business is leading the way in fleet innovation and added value services whilst ensuring that the fleet assets are managed to deliver the highest levels of performance and reliability for our customers.
We are looking for an experienced Fleet Auditor to join the Engineering Audit Manager based at the Head Office in Derby. This is a key role which will provide a highly effective fleet audit service for the extensive fleet owned by Porterbrook and operated by passenger and freight train operating companies across the UK. The main accountability will be the delivery of supplier audits in line with the company’s requirements and to comply with the company’s RISAS (Railway Industry Supplier Approval Scheme) certification. This role will also involve supporting key projects across the business from a QA / Inspection point of view.
The role will involve extensive travel across the UK with the audits being carried out at the train operators’ depots and on supplier sites. In addition, there will be the requirement for a high degree of flexibility to deliver audits in line with business requirements which may change at relatively short notice.
Ideal candidates will be from either a ROSCO, consultancy or train operator and they will have a minimum of at least 5 years fleet audit experience. Highly confident and professional in style, individuals who can manage the resolution of audit issues in a timely and effective manner will fit well with this role. Experience of rail vehicle manufacturing / maintenance quality and in-service routine inspection activities is essential along with being a qualified Lead Auditor within the rail industry. Practical experience in a rail depot or overhaul works environment would also be an advantage. We are particularly interested in individuals who can demonstrate a track record in continuous improvement.
We are seeking the very best talent to join the team, and offer an excellent salary, along with bonus and benefits. This is a fantastic opportunity to join a great organisation with excellent people and a road map for the future to grow and develop the business.
