Looking for full autonomy and a proper chance to make your mark somewhere?

You’d be coming in as an Operations Director in a business that (full transparency here) quite frankly needs you.

It’s not pristine and it’s not perfect, but that’s what you’re here for. It’s not as drastic as a full-blown rescue or turnaround mission, but there are a lot of changes that need to be made in order to assist the business in their ambitious growth plans for the future.

They’ve gone through a period of ‘messy growth’ over the last few years which has played a part in some processes breaking down, or changes not being sustained and they’re at a point now where the brakes have been applied in order to ‘tidy up’ and stabilise the foundations of the business before they look to grow again.

You’ll be responsible for the day to day running of the place, with full autonomy over pretty much everything, you’ll also be expected to drive the financials and will have full P&L control as well so some commercial appreciation/experience would really help.

There’ll be a lot of ‘low hanging fruit’ to start with so you’ll probably make some pretty quick changes initially, and longer term, you’ll be responsible for helping to come up with more strategic improvements on how to get the business closer to where it wants to be.

Ultimately, it’s not a company that’s perfect or anywhere all that close to be honest, but it is a company where you have the autonomy to roll out the changes you want to, a Senior team that’s very much aware of the problems and are honest enough to admit they don’t know how to fix them all, and the trust and backing from the owner himself to even consider letting you own the joint one day.

You’ll be based at their site in Oldham and salary is around the £80-85k mark.

There’s a massive opportunity here for someone to come in, really make a mark and bring the business up to the level they want to be at, it’ll be a challenge, probably quite frustrating at times, and isn’t a ready-made role for you come in to and pick up where someone else left off. It’s a start from scratch, sink your teeth into type of position, so if that sounds like the type of challenge you could be after, get in touch and I’d be happy to tell you more about it
