Contract Type

This is a genuinely unique opportunity for an ambitious Managing Director to take the helm of a well-known, well established and profitable UK based engineering services business. It has built an enviable reputation, using its expertise, high value assets and cutting edge technologies to deliver services critical to the success of major infrastructure projects across a number of sectors including, oil & gas, utilities and the rapidly growing renewable energy sector and global internet infrastructure industries.

Reporting directly into the main Board, this role will suit an individual who is striving for personal development but is already comfortable managing a P&L and proven running a successful business unit autonomously. You will be given considerable autonomy and scope to implement your plans and as their markets are expanding, a creative and entrepreneurial, mind-set for growth is essential. 

The business provides, state of the art, subsea geological data acquisition, analysis, imaging and mapping of the world’s oceans. As such it operates across multiple locations and ideally you will have a proven background in strong operational control in a capital intensive, engineering services environment. They recognise the competitive advantage to be gained by the transition from a traditional engineering focused company into a customer services focused organisation. Therefore you will naturally display a talent for strategic leadership facilitating this transition together with strong commercial and financial acumen. You will have a successful track record of operating in a customer focused engineering B2B services business and be comfortable managing a significant P&L, winning multi £m contracts and operating in the divisional structure of a £1bn+ group. 

As Managing Director all functional heads will report directly into you and as some of these can be remote from the head office, a strong, decisive and clear communicator is essential.  Naturally you will be a committed and driven individual, you will inspire trust in others and have an open management style.

Graduate qualified, you will have the requisite interpersonal skills to lead and inspire change across the business. Of most importance will be your track record of success in the B2B engineering services sector, ideally aligned to major projects though specific experience in their field is not necessary. You will have a strong business development capability and experience of winning major contracts. As part of a larger group, career advancement is very real limited only by your talent and ambition.

The role is based in the North West and the company is offering excellent remuneration for the right candidate which will include a six figure basic salary, plus bonus, LTIP and a benefits package commensurate with the position.
