Job Details

High margin branded opportunity to set the manufacturing strategy and execute the plan via high functioning teams across three different factories.

This Head of Manufacturing role is a compelling opportunity to both create and implement your vision and strategy of best practise across three different manufacturing sites.

Headline details:

Head of Operations for three complex, automated factories
  • Successful; Seven of the parent company brands are leaders in their category including this segment taking first and second spots in its niche
  • Instantly recognisable brand
  • Significant CAPEX investment for you to lead
  • Part way through a change program

This change is a great opportunity for you to come in with fresh eyes and a different angle to understand what the next steps of the business look like and impart your view of operational best practise.

As a proven Head of Manufacturing / General Manager / Operations Director within complex food / drink manufacturing environments you will be able to quickly assess where this business is and what it needs to do.

You will have a large CAPEX budget in tow to support you, the company has a good track record of investing (£17m across the estate) and this role will be instrumental in leading £4m that has already been earmarked for you to innovate the capabilities.

Potentially a major selling point drawback are one and the same thing depending on your personal circumstances - the three factories are located through the East of England and so flexibility and travel will be required (but given in equal measure with home working / flexible working for you to self-manage).

This is a rare opportunity for you to enter a business that does not recruit often at this level.
