Job Description

Operations Manager
East Lancashire

Average is rubbish. (Cue howls of derision from the statisticians)

Ok, in the world of stats, averages have their place. But, in the manufacturing world, is average an aspiration? Do you wake up in a morning being satisfied with average?

(Clue: If you just said yes, you’re not going to be right for this role. Sorry.)

My client doesn’t want to be average. From the top level of management downwards, they want to be World Class.

As an experienced Manufacturing Operations Manager, you’ll share this ambition and will know how to get the best out of your team. You’ll understand how people work and how to manage different characters. You’ll also see the value of a Managing Director who’s committed to improving the business.

Bringing your knowledge of low to medium volume production, in a manufacturing and assembly environment, you’ll now be looking to challenge yourself further in a successful SME, who is hungry for more success.

Everyone in the company has embraced a lean manufacturing approach and are entirely focused on improving their operations, however they recognise they have a way to go on that journey so will need you to mentor, coach and guide the team further.

They manufacture their own range of products and the critical processes on site are CNC machining and assembly. They are continually developing new products for their markets, so you’ll also be able to get involved in the NPD and NPI processes.

The company are serious about their ambitions but recognise they can be achieved in an enjoyable environment which you will be able to create through your management style.

So if you’re not happy with being average, please contact me on 01257 244740 to discuss.
