Are you an experienced Operations Director or Senior Manager with an Aerospace / Industrial production engineering background who is seeking that next step in your career that offers both a challenging role and a career development opportunity for the future into senior leadership?

Are you tired of the regular mundane operations roles that produce the same components day in day out with little to develop and lack true challenge and business / organisational development?
This role for an experienced Operations professional offers a step away from this with the opportunity to develop systems and process within a diverse engineering and manufacturing environment supplying into some very true blue chip customers worldwide and is not about just "ticking over" but about innovation and creating best in class supply.

You will be a strategic thinker, leader of people, a champion of lean and the operational figurehead for the site and report directly into a board level function. You will need to be tenacious, driven and possess a desire to achieve and progress your career. At the same time you need to be able to get your hands dirty with the team from time to time and lead by example.

That hands on Industrial / Aerospace / Defence operations / production background is a must and a solid understanding of what it takes to deliver the highest level of components into the Manufacturing elite is essential as this role will deliver that challenge daily but with great reward within a growing and supportive environment. Strong problem solving and lean / continuous improvement skills will be essential in this role to get the best out of the team.
