About the Role
The Territory Operations Manager role is a unique opportunity to have a direct impact on the success of Uber Eats in Newcastle and the North East.

This role calls for a combination of communication and stakeholder leadership skills, savvy analytics, strategic thinking, strong execution and the interpersonal ability to work with teams from across the business. Further, as Uber Eats is a new business and remains a fast paced environment, we are looking for a highly adaptable candidate who is able to switch between long-term critical initiatives one moment, and pivot into rapid tactical actions the next.

- High adaptability to change and ability to implement quickly. Able to change directions quickly from long-term thinking to immediate action tactical response
- Able to cope with pressure and an environment where not everything works yet. Much more interested in taking ownership of problems than in worrying about whose problem it is
