Prisoner Escort Custody Services (PECS), Serco operates across 105 courts and 16 vehicle bases throughout London, East & West England. On average we transport over 21,000 custodies per month and at the core of our service is our Operational Control Centre Team (OCC) working to ensure custodies are transported on time, on schedule and in a safe & secure way.


We are recruiting for a Logistics & Planning Lead to join our fantastic 24/7 OCC team - optimising operational performance, utilising resources in the most efficient way to support the delivery of contractual and performance requirements and reduce liquidated damages, whilst evaluating risks to protect the safety and welfare of PECS staff members and custodies. 


The centre is open 24/7 and whilst you'll cover various shift patterns (which will include Nights & Weekends), we do operate on a rota basis that allows you the flexibility to enjoy meaningful time off to do the things you love (we typically work on average 10-hour shifts, up to 5 days per week on a rota basis but we also offer flexible working options).


This is a fast-paced demanding role where you will contribute to the organisational goals consistently through supporting the business operationally.

This will include, stakeholder management/engagement, adherence to SOP'S/LOP's, legal and contractual compliance, welfare and Health and Safety.


Do you thrive off delivering outstanding stakeholder engagement and achieving results through collaboration and providing excellent customer service? It doesn't always run smoothly though, so you'll need to be quick on your feet to adapt to any unpredictable changes and deal with any incidents or challenges that occur throughout the day. You will join a work family that feel valued and enjoy making a genuine difference every day!
