    The ARI Way


    The ARI Way is an change program that was introduced in ARI four years ago to determine and implement the best ways of operating the business globally. The ARI Way team is a specialised, high profile, transformation focused process improvement team that works with all ARI business units across the globe to solve business problems, standardise and improve processes, create efficiencies and ultimately look to improve the performance of this global retail business. Given the nature of this global retail business the scope covers all areas including Direct Retail, Category Management, Buying, Business Intelligence Supply Chain, HR, Bidding for new Business and IT.



    This role


    This permanent process improvement role sits as part of a team of five reporting directly to the Global Head of Process Development (all based in the Dublin Head Office).

You would be joining a high-profile team whose work has a significant impact on various strategic business decisions. You will be exposed to all aspects of the business and will gain an excellent understanding as to how the entire global organisation operates. There are lots of opportunities for learning and development and it is anticipated that there would be lots of opportunities for progression internally for someone that can succeed in this role over the coming years here in ARI. You may also get to travel at times to visit one of the 14 different airports ARI currently operate in.
