Experienced Operations Manager
Whitworths has an impressive heritage and promising future. We’ve got ambitious growth plans, but as we all know, it’s the people who make the business, so we need you to help us achieve them.
Who are you?
You’re an experienced senior Operations Manager, working in a production facility. There’s not much you’ve not seen or dealt with, so you’re pretty unflappable and know how to deal with just about any situation that arises. This means you can do the day job with your eyes closed – and that means you’ve got the time, the capability and the appetite to help us develop and grow our facility and our people.
Driving continuous improvement is second nature – you look for opportunities in everything you do, and you don’t just think, you act. You get a buzz from developing, coaching and growing the careers of others. You don’t need to worry about getting the t-shirt, yours is well washed, so your focus isn’t on impressing and competing to climb the career ladder. Don’t worry, we’ll take care of your next few rungs – you just need to let your work speak for itself.
You can demonstrate driving improvements across the balance scorecard, you can spot a star at 50 paces and you never go home without knowing you’ve made a real difference. We’ll give you the opportunity to utilise all of these talents daily, but more so, we’ll ask you to impart your wisdom to upskill your team – we want you to create a team that can excel and succeed you. Are you up to the challenge?
Whitworths are the UK’s leader in dried fruits, nuts and seeds. We’re proud to be widely recognised and trusted by our working partners, international suppliers and, most importantly, by millions of customers as manufacturers of innovative, tasty, healthy products.
There are many reasons to come and work with us, but the biggest reason is so that you have a job you love and a company you are proud to say you work for. In addition, you'll also have access to childcare vouchers, a workplace pension, life assurance, on-site occupational health - and of course there are always our delicious products to snack on!
Whitworths is growing every day, so we are always looking for talented individuals (at every level) who can deliver STAR potential. If you're ready to give us your best, let's talk.
