Our client is a niche market leading FMCG business that serves the UK market and exports to more than 50 countries. With a turnover in excess of £35 million it is profitable, cash generative and enjoying year on year growth which creates the need for the appointment of an Operations Director to take board responsibility for Warehousing, Logistics and Production. Reporting to the Managing Director the successful candidate will work well in a collegiate executive and be responsible for “driving the agenda” across his / her areas of responsibility.
The individual to be appointed will through his / her team assess processes, working practices, physical layouts and use of technology, set, monitor and review appropriate KPI‘s and mentor and develop the group. He / she will manage team workloads to ensure service levels and deadlines are achieved and take board responsibility for Health and Safety and the ongoing development of ISO standards. The Operations Director will develop plans for the ongoing expansion of Operations to dovetail with the future growth targets, work with Product and Marketing to understand the full operational costs of Product strategy and operational considerations to New Product Development and with purchasing on “make or buy” decisions. He / she will as a board member input to the company direction and strategy.
The Operations Director to be appointed will provide a focus and consistent approach to production, warehousing and logistics excellence and deliver “first class” quality, service delivery and safety standards. This is an entry point in to a dynamic and fast paced business and is likely to attract a current Operations Director in a less complex and smaller business ready to “step up” in to a bigger role or to an Operations professional quite probably a “number two” ready to progress to a board appointment. The successful candidate will be demonstrable capable of contributing at board level, will have an inclusive style and work well with colleagues at all levels and will have the ability to both originate and implement change.
