In today’s dynamic market, clients’ needs and wishes change continuously. To serve its clients best and optimize the service delivery, Vistra needs to anticipate and adapt to those changes. 

Vacancy: Operations Director 

The Operations Director will be responsible for implementing and executing global and local initiatives as part of the company’s operations journey to optimize service delivery. Standardization, simplification, and digitization are crucial to ensure operational excellence throughout the Dutch Operations Team, shared service centers, and Vistra’s centers of excellence. The Operations Director will put the processes and infrastructure in place that are required to achieve operational excellence and continuous improvement. Thanks to strong communication skills and an inspiring leadership style, the Operations Director can translate mission, strategy, and policies into team actions and bring all stakeholders – colleagues, clients, auditors, and suppliers – on board. 

Key responsibilities include optimizing operational processes for legal and financial services, reshaping and streamlining payment processes, implementing a centralized automation system, and building the operational infrastructure around existing and new products and services. 

Onshore and offshore operations
Operational processes occur in the Dutch Operations Team (130 HC), shared service centers, and Vistra’s centers of excellence. The Operations Director will set up robust qualitative and collaborative platforms with these centers, ensuring smooth and efficient cooperation. 

The Operations Director will manage the Operations Team directly and work together closely with two Heads of Business. As part of the Dutch Management Team, the Operations Director will report directly to the Managing Director, Nicole van Bunge. 

Each one of us brings something different to Vistra, working as one team to deliver the right solution. That’s why our clients choose to work with us – the power of our combined skills makes us unstoppable. Which is where you come in. Ready to own your career? Be part of our journey. Seize your world of opportunity and join Vistra.” – Nicole van Bunge, Managing Director Vistra Netherlands
