FR Military Talent Pool 2018 (h/f)
This position is for former military who are starting to consider a career outside of the military. We have dedicated recruiters who will discuss all the relevant options within Amazon Operations. Our military recruitment program covers a wide range of roles at various levels across France and other countries.
We are Amazon; we pioneer.
Since opening our virtual doors 1995, we’ve been pushing the boundaries of possible further and further.
Our entire business works hard to delight our customers – from the second an order is placed online to the seamless coordination of that order behind the scenes, we strive to stay agile, fluid and intentional. That can be described in one of our core Leadership Principles, which is Bias for Action. This means that our teams band together, roll up their sleeves, and aren’t content with just standing still.
Military hiring is a crucial element of our company-wide business plan, for identifying future leaders; we’re enjoying rapid growth in France and we need high caliber leaders to join us and push the boundaries of possible. Specifically, we’re recruiting military talent for the following two main roles in Amazon Operations:
Area Managers have some of the most crucial, internally-facing leadership roles in the company, leading teams of 50-100. They assume charge of one the major departments within the Fulfillment Center they join, then deliver on targeted requirements/KPIs.
To this end, they implement and adapt the experience they’ve gained in running complex operations environments, such as supply chain, transportation or logistics workplaces. While they achieve this, they combine this action with strong interpersonal and project management skills. Each and every day, they’re comfortable making high impact decisions in fast-moving scenarios. These candidates hold a degree and typically have 5-10 years of military leadership experience.
Operations Manager roles are all about influencing and enacting tangible changes and improvements, throughout all possible aspects of their particular area of operations.
From day one, they assume leadership of a pivotal area of the Fulfillment Center they join: either Inbound or Outbound areas of order fulfillment. Furthermore, their high-level goal is deceptively simple: they need to maintain and deliver on the excellent customer service that Amazon is well-known for. They make this happen by planning resources, managing their direct reports, and through coordinating multiple, simultaneous work streams – both from a program and project management standpoint. Typically, these high-flying candidates hold MBAs and have more 10-15 years military and/or civilian leadership experience, leading teams of 200-400.
