Job Description

Group Managing Director 

£80-90k + Generous Bonus

Commutable from Stockport, Stoke-on-Trent, Derby, Stafford



It’s all I’m hearing about at the moment in the office. “Did you watch (insert team name of choice) last night?” seems to be the main daily question.

Football isn’t my thing, however football managers do interest me. I wonder how well a Champions League manager would do in a lower division club? For example, could you see Jose Mourinho managing Accrington Stanley? (No offence to Stanley fans). He’d probably get the team performing well but only to a level before he’d want to invest in bigger players and would quickly get frustrated at the constraints he had to work within.

Maybe you can relate to this situation in your current company? You could be the best managing director in the world but if the company can’t support your ambition you’ll never achieve Champions League glory and the best you can expect would be a fourth round FA Cup upset.

How would you like to flex your entrepreneurial muscles within a group of engineering companies, all with a very different set of challenges?

Maybe you want to take a top ten Premiership team to Champions League success?

Perhaps you relish the challenge of taking a Sunday League club to the Premiership?

Probably, you’ve had enough of the football analogy now.

This is a very entrepreneurial board who are looking for a Managing Director to run their three manufacturing and engineering businesses. One of the companies is well-established and performing at a high level but the board know it can be better. You’ll need the gravitas to lead and inspire the team on a daily basis and have a strong background in manufacturing to understand and drive the operational improvements required.

The other two businesses are in their infancy but with massive potential for growth so you’ll need to be creative, strategic and push hard to realise the board’s ambition.

In return, you will have the full support of the board who will generously reward your success and provide the platform for you to really showcase your abilities.

There’s plenty more detail to go through on this role so please don’t worry if your CV isn’t up to date and just get in touch with me to discuss on 01257 244740.
