Paul Nyman Consultancy is supporting the recruitment of the Head of Operations for this FMCG manufacturer who is recognised as one of the most highly regarded businesses within their sector.
A family owned business with a heritage spanning over 50 years; an iconic name within its category. The business has ambitious growth plans that will focus on both retail and foodservice customers, and has already made significant investment in marketing to further boost brand awareness. Whilst delivering the leadership for this operational plan you will offer the direction, in conjunction with your Colleagues to uplift the strategic plan as the business expands into new areas of production in the next 12-18 months.
To succeed in this role, you will demonstrate a diverse range of skills and be a true operational leader. Working together with the senior management team this role will look to improve production efficiencies withing the current business structure. You will implement Continuous Improvement and LEAN principles throughout the operation to get the very best from your team during a period of continued business growth. Part of this role will look at changing shift patterns in order to accommodate the long term increase in customer orders, and as a result this role is as much about winning the hearts and minds of a loyal workforce as it is about delivering to the needs of every customer.
To be successful in this role you will already be a Senior Operations Manager or Site Manager working in chilled food manufacturing. You will naturally lead from the front and possess a “can do” attitude combined with the humility to recognise that you don’t know everything and can still learn.
