It's not often that you come across a newly created General Manager position, especially one within a business that has experienced rapid growth and shows no signs of slowing down.

This Food Manufacturing business is going through a modernisation period and are in the middle of making major improvements to their processes.

… this is where you come in!

With a proven track record in heading up chilled food manufacturing sites, you will be accountable for delivering year on year improvements and taking the business to heights they haven't experienced before. You're approachable character will only work in your favour as you look to expand the customer base in what will prove to be a forward facing role.

You will need to be a General Manager with a visual presence on the shop floor and own the ability to combine both your hands on and strategic skills. Ideally, you are someone who thrives on not only developing the business but more so the people who are the back-bone of it.

What else?

This role will give you the opportunity to implement the continuous improvement skills you've picked up over your career.

A CI strategy will need to be deployed. Of course there are plenty of quick wins but there will need to be a lean culture set out to a workforce that have had limited exposure. Waste reduction and yield optimisation will be your initial focus however a longer term vision with a continuity plan will only aid you in your success.


It is essential that you have a background in chilled food manufacturing with exposure to managing full site operations including full budgetary responsibility and remits over Engineering, H&S, Technical, Supply Chain and Operations.

Most importantly, you'll need to be a personable character. The business prides itself as a family and will need you to retain this fundamental element in your work.
