GB, London Competitive
Permanent & Full-time 212420835

DESCRIPTION

Amazon is focused on protecting the health and safety of our employees while continuing to serve people who need our services more than ever. Regular testing on a global scale across all industries would both help keep people safe and help get the economy back up and running. But, for this to work, we as a society would need vastly more testing capacity than is currently available. Unfortunately, today we live in a world of scarcity where COVID-19 testing is heavily rationed. Until we have an effective vaccine available in billions of doses, high-volume testing capacity would be of great help, but getting that done will take collective action by NGOs, companies, and governments.

For our part, Amazon has begun the work of building incremental testing capacity. We are seeking a Program Manager to support deployment and rollout of a program within Amazon operations.

· Own and drive the rollout activities relating to packing and shipping at all sites
· Identify and drive incremental process improvements and changes as the program evolves
· Ensure and reinforce process control and quality throughout the launch process and after
· Work closely with the central operations teams and individual business units to ensure the program is operating as expected
· Support wider rollout activities across different functions in a fast paced environment
· Serve as an escalation point for troubleshooting issues

BASIC QUALIFICATIONS

· Bachelor's degree from an appropriately accredited university or college
· Proven experience in launch or program management
· Effective communicator, able to convey complex ideas in a clear, concise manner both verbally and written
