Operations Manager - Lead role for ops, supply chain, engineering
Do you want to work for a highly successful food manufacturer in an autonomous role where the people agenda is the main focus of management?
I have worked with this excellent business for a long time and someone I introduced once said to me: “When you meet them you realise they actually live their values, it is not just writing on the wall”.
They are a respected international manufacturer of premium quality products. The UK site is very successful and profitable and as you would expect this business has a great working environment.
The UK operations manager will lead and take full responsibility for the manufacturing side of the business. The role reports to the top person in the UK who is very experienced and has a very open, honest and fair style, he believes in setting clear objectives for his team and then leaving them to drive results.
There is still lots to challenge the incoming person, they need to update old systems and they plan to invest in more automation within the factory. The business is very profitable and the company will invest money to bring this site up to the highest standard. This role will be a key decision maker in these changes. The business is already on a good improvement journey and the incoming operations manager must be able to take employees on the journey with them and effectively manage change.
As this is a senior role and we expect to have a good range of candidates I want to state the must haves:
• UK Food manufacturing background in a senior ops role.
• Have been in charge of, or heavily involved in supply chain.
• An open and honest management style that fits the business culture.
The role is East Midlands based and applicants around Leeds, Sheffield, Nottingham, Derby, Leicester and Birmingham will find it workable.
Package circa £75k + car or allowance + 15% bonus + 9% pension
