Job Summary 

Come and join a leading British Manufacturer! 

About Us 

Celebrating more than 34 years at the forefront of the Perimeter Security Industry, Cova Security Gates are proud to design, manufacture, and install high quality, bespoke engineered perimeter security products in an increasingly challenging global environment. 

Since the very beginning, our mission has always been to protect people and property from criminal or terrorist attacks globally. 

Our 20,000 square foot facility is based in the heart of Manor Royal Business District, Crawley and it is from here that our experienced team manufactures all our products specific to the client’s requirements and site conditions, based upon wherever the installation is required all around the world. 

Our products are supplied across all industries including construction, commercial, retail, utilities, power generation, financial services, airports, rail, and emergency services. We are also renowned globally for protecting government buildings including Embassies, Foreign Commonwealth Offices, HMRC, Home Office, Ministry of Defence, Treasury, and Local Authorities. 

The Role 

We are growing at pace and are looking for a skilled and ambitious Operations Administrator who will not only support the Operations Management Team and deliver the demands of a busy operation but want to grow their skills in Operations Project Management. 

As such we need a dynamic individual who is willing to learn quickly, and get stuck in to ensure we can continue to surpass our client’s expectations. 

The role would suit a confident, self-motivated team player with excellent communication skills, someone extremely organised who holds confidence that enables them to engage professionally and politely with both UK and International clients, freight agents, and key suppliers. 

Supporting the Field Services Manager, you will be responsible for managing parts of the project process, including arranging time-critical sea or road transportation via our network of freight agents and haulers, ensuring products meet our waiting installation teams. Ensuring site paperwork, such as Method Statements are completed and approved by liaising with site personnel. 

We will, of course, provide training and guidance on our bespoke products and processes, however, you must possess the desire and passion to learn and grow the business with us as there will in turn be the opportunity to develop and grow to more senior roles within the business. 

Experience

  • Personal Advancement Opportunities 
  • 5 weeks paid annual holiday entitlement + public holidays 
  • Death in service benefit 
  • Company pension contribution 
  • Free secure on-site parking
