Operations Manager

Food Manufacturing


£65,000 - £70,000 + Car Allowance & Bonus

As far as opportunities go, this is about as rare and exciting as they come.

This is an opportunity to join a world-class manufacturing business who are going through one of the largest £multi-million investments in their last 50 years.

Not only has it transformed the way they do things, but it has also provided the opportunity for you to have an impact and create a long-lasting legacy.

You will take on a highly automated food manufacturing plant and guide them through the transformation, manage any teething issues and support the team in their development. Given the changes that have happened, you will have a focus on driving improvements – increasing OEE and reducing costs (waste, stock adjustments, excessive stock disposal etc).

Despite being in a heavily automated plant, you will still have a team of c.100 people, who require your support. Given the level of automation, it’s no surprise that you will be responsible for both Production and Engineering teams whilst being involved in the wider decisions as part of the SLT.


For this one you will need a background in high speed/volume manufacturing, ideally food/beverages but we could potentially consider Pharma/Chemical. You will need to have experience as a Manufacturing Manager, Operations Manager or Factory Manager with some form of qualification/background in engineering.

Please apply below and Dan will reach out for a confidential conversation.   


Recruitment specialists for the food manufacturing, FMCG and engineering sectors covering the UK and USA.  Contract, Interim, and Permanent specialists covering Engineering, HR, NPD/Process, Sales & Marketing, Operations, Supply Chain, and Technical.

We like to think we are a little different, taking a human-centric approach to recruitment. We match candidates and clients using shared values and visions alongside experience, qualifications, and ability.

We know that when candidates and clients have good synergy, great things happen. The Sterling Choice team are ‘people’ people and have come together from a variety of consumer-facing backgrounds such as customer service, sales, hospitality, and the leisure industry.
