The GM at this busy food manufacturer is looking for a "Unique Partner"…could that be you?

This manufacturing site has faced some serious challenges this year (haven't we all). Keeping all the plates spinning: deliveries to customer on time; staff morale; breakdowns; commissioning new kit; engineering challenges, not to mention staff numbers down due to self-isolation. It's fair to say 2020 has thrown every curve ball going. Yet despite all this, the Leadership Team have remained clear-sighted and focussed on future goals.

The financial backing of a parent company, with a turnover last year of c£16bn means this business has strong foundations. They look for people who are focussed on improvements, foster a strong CI culture and know what good looks like.

What are the keys for success here?

An inspirational leader, somebody who really understands factory operations from every angle. A leader who can identify talent and develop it; building high-performing teams, engendering buy-in and accountability. Someone who is proud of the business and has helped to create achievements through people.

Your route to manufacturing may have been in a different FMCG setting earlier in your career. However, it's vital you have gained the majority of your recent experience in food production, ideally short shelf-life.

What else will it take to be the GM's unique partner?

A powerful communicator with a dynamic management style, you'll come with good ideas for improvements, making conversion levels a priority. Ultimately, you're confident stepping into the GM's shoes and deputising when the need arises.
