  • Fast expanding business. Brexit proof and recession proof – we can 100% deliver on stability, security and a fantastic company culture  
  • Low to medium volume manufacturing (so not Six Sigma but still a push for lean and CI).
  • Evolution rather than revolution – you will be joining a successful, profitable manufacturing / engineering business
  • Direct reports are Operations Manager, Purchasing, CAD Design, Sales Manager, Production Manager

This Ops Director jobs role will suit:

  • An Operations Director or General Manager or Operations Manager who has a track record of improving engineering SMEs / manufacturing SMEs
  • Alternatively you could be an MD or Business Unit Director (with a manufacturing background) who has that nice mix of manufacturing + commercial acumen (running a business with P&L responsibility)
  • Experience in engineering / manufacturing SMEs with low to medium volume assembly and manufacture would be highly beneficial, giving that “wear a number of hats” experience.
  • An Operations Manager / Operations Director / General Manager who wants to make a successful business even more successful
