Job Description

Job Title: General Manager
Location: West Midlands

 A rare opportunity has arisen to join a bespoke engineering company, as a General Manager, as they continue to thrive and venture into new markets.

On offer is a high-level, autonomous position where you will manage the entire running of a thriving and modernising engineering firm. 
This company is beginning its journey and it has ambitious plans. The products are entirely bespoke, and they have contracts with a range of high-value clients. 

In line with the growth and objectives to develop new products and tap into new markets, they are looking to employ a highly-skilled General Manager to oversee the running of the business. 
This is a new position based at the facility in Staffordshire, and it is a management position reporting to the CEO. You will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the business, managing day-to-day operations, directly managing the Engineering Director, Quality Engineer, and another Engineering resource. 

A key part of this role is providing management information and ensuring that the engineering products are delivered on time and to budget. They are looking for somebody to lead a culture of continuous improvement to ensure projects are managed successfully from cradle to grave, managing the safe delivery of projects, providing monthly feedback on Time, Cost, Quality, and Risk.  
The ideal candidate is somebody with a Rail or Engineering management background who is comfortable managing a team and implementing systems to improve performance. This candidate will understand the entire process; from customer engagement at the quoting process, allocating the appropriate resource to a project, ensuring the correct quality documentation is in place, avoiding design and project creep, and keeping projects on time and within budget. We are looking for somebody who can demonstrate a proven background of delivering budget against performance, managing the P and L.  
This is an autonomous role where you will have the ability to shape and influence the business for the future with the support of a well-established team.
