Aviation – Airside Performance Manager – top 3 objectives

Project description
I applied for a job as Airside Performance Manager in the UK for a UK based airline – Monarch. I need to prepare presentation/speech on ‘What do you feel your top three objectives will be in the role, and how do you plan to meet and exceed those objectives?’
Below you can find the information regarding the job. In my opinion the top objectives are safety, on time performance and supplier performance.

This role will be specifically focused on consistent delivery of excellent operational safety, on-time performance and managing airport and supplier performance relating to Ground Handling, catering operations/logistics, aircraft cleaning & presentation and airfield performance. All of these aspects allow Ground Operations to ensure we meet the demands of the Customer Proposition of Superior Customer Service at a Competitive Price.

Each Airside Performance Manager will be assigned specific seasonal objectives via the PDR process which they will be responsible for managing; e.g. safety compliance, cleaning, catering, de-icing, Ground Ops manuals.
