About the job

We are currently seeking an Area Manager for our Boels Rental South West region. As our Area Manager, you will provide professional leadership and management to the seven depots and associated employees within your area. Sounds fun, right? Then this vacancy could be right for you!


Boels Pit Stop

As our next Area Manager, you will ensure that all depots within the region are organised and presented in the best possible manner and that they deliver expected standards with regard to KPIs, stock levels, vehicle availability, quality and customer service. You will regularly visit your depots, to review their progress and support the depot manager with any challenges or opportunities that might occur.


With your keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of the plant hire industry, you will always be seeking to make continuous improvement to our service and standards whilst engaging with regional sales managers to enhance performance. You will understand the importance of the financial performance of your area, and drive results - you get a kick out of achieving your targets! When areas and trends of concern are analysed and identified, you always ensure that appropriate plans exist or are implemented to ensure a positive outcome.

As the go-to person for the Depot Managers in the South West, you will lead, motivate and inspire them and ensure that they do the same for their own teams.


When new staff need to be recruited, you will take an active interest in collaborating with HR to find the ideal new team member. You will take a proactive role in the performance, training and career management of all staff within your area. You take a great deal of pride in your team performing and progressing.


We will provide you with a company car, so that you can regularly check in with all of your depots. You will be travelling to and from South Wales, Bristol, Wiltshire and Gloucestershire. Consistent, open communication with your depot managers will be the key to your success!
