Do you thrive in a busy, detail and quality driven engineering and manufacturing environment? Are you ready to step up as number 2 to the Operations Director? An Operations Manager is required to lead a medium volume niche manufacturing business through the challenges associated with growth and expansion.

My client design and manufacture a range of engineered systems for a highly specialist application, sold to customers in a range of industries on a truly international basis. As a recognised global leader in their field they've driven demand for their core range of products across many different end user customers including; Facilities, Aerospace and Construction as well as developing an engineering service offering to support these class leading products.

The Operations Manager will take responsibility for leadership of end-to-end manufacturing engineering and manufacturing operations, ensuring on-time and on-budget supply of quality systems and services to customers. You will be hands-on, driving performance, championing both operations and customer service and ensuring you spend time with your team to assess capability across the functions and leading continuous improvement activity to exceed customer and business performance expectations. You will ensure the business is fit for further growth by developing and mentoring your direct reports and taking ownership of succession planning and recruitment for your teams while reporting into the Operations Director and the Board where required.

You will have demonstrable experience within Manufacturing Operations Management within a low to medium volume environment and an exposure to the supplier base and logistics supply chain would be highly advantageous in this demanding but exciting role. You're hands-on and have proven experience leading and improving a small team to deliver consistent results. You're commercially capable and acutely customer focused, with the ability to upwards-manage when required.
