Operations Manager

75k plus package

This Operations Manager role is a key role for the future of this business and ideal for someone who is looking for an environment where they can see the value they add. This medium sized FMCG site is in growth and is keen to source an ambitious and driven operations candidate who understands the pace and demands involved when supplying the major retailers.

This could be a sideways move for someone looking for pastures new or a step up for a shift manager who has manged teams and has delivered successful improvements through people. This is definitely a hands-on role requiring a good communicator able to challenge and fully embed themselves in the heart and soul of the operation.

What will the role involve?

  • As the Operations Manager you would drive day to day performance ensuring quality and customer service are centre to the KPI's.
  • Reporting into the Site Director with the autonomy to deliver the operational agenda.
  • Working as part of a cross functional team, communicating vital operational information to ensure that all teams understand the priorities for the day, week and month.
  • Further development of a continuous improvement culture within the site where everyone has accountability and helps promote an improvement culture.
  • Taking the lead in making key decisions around product integrity and technical issues.
  • Working to deadlines and to customer time constraints prioritising with organised and effective planning.
  • Continually setting out best practice in operations management, reporting on key deliverables.

In terms of background the ideal candidate will have:

  • A manufacturing management background ideally in an FMCG, packaging or food production environment.
  • Examples of delivering operational targets through teams in fast paced environments.
  • Able to demonstrate a proactive approach to continuous improvement and ability to drive and be involved in added value projects.
  • Previous success of developing teams and developing strong engagement plans.
  • Experience of working with a variety of stakeholders to deliver success in operations.
  • Ability to plan, prioritise the key areas within operations having both a strategic and tactical approach.
