Are you capable of leading a business through operational change, creating a model factory within their UK footprint? Are you the type of manager who gives your team support to hit day to day goals, while helping them build their capability for the long term through active coaching and development?
My client is a UK market leader in their field, manufacturing high volume products that are critical to the everyday infrastructure of the UK. The Operations Manager will help transform one of their most important factories from good to great, working with a highly-willing and enthusiastic team to drive improvement activities across the plant and drive the future development of the site.
Highly profitable, the group has been through important structural change over the last few years; this change is now reaching its factories in the form of changes in leadership, investment and ultimately, the goal to increase capacity across their UK supply chain. The Operations Manager is a critical appointment in driving localised strategy and resulting improvement and is seen as an opportunity to appoint succession planning for the future
You will be a proven Operations Manager or Plant Manager, with a track record delivering improvements in culture, efficiency and productivity. You know what world class looks like, but importantly you've previously led a business through a similar journey - so you'll have the battle scars and understand the challenges that come with this sort of project and be able to clearly demonstrate the results you delivered. You understand the impact of leadership on culture, and the impact of culture on processes - you aspire to get the best out of your people by creating the right working environment for them to thrive.
The leadership culture is mature and accountable, the work-life balance achievable is fantastic compared to many manufacturing environments, and continued growth/development is available due to the organisation's multiple UK sites & succession planning strategy.
The successful candidate will be paid a competitive basic salary plus a benefits package including car/allowance, 20% bonus, 10% matched pension and private health care.
