Are you experienced in production operations management, looking to make a difference in a smaller business? Looking for progression opportunity to Head of Ops / GM level in the future?

A Derbyshire based SME is looking for a Manufacturing Operations Manager to join their leadership team.

Your time will be split between people / site management and developing the operations.

You’ll be managing a small team of 10 through 2 shift leaders. The team are highly motivated and competent, meaning you’ll have little to do around performance management. Instead, you’ll focus your time on coaching and upskilling the team.

You’ll also have wider operational accountabilities including site H&S, processes design and development, and CI.

Scrap, defect rates, yield etc are largely tracked and analysed in MS Excel, so you’ll need to be capable of analysing spreadsheets of data to provide improvement recommendations.

You’ll be involved in a range of projects over the next few years, from site upgrades, ISO accreditations, CAPEX installation, as well as projects you’ve identified through a CI focus.  

The business is looking to double in size over the next 5 years, which will give you the opportunity to develop into a multi-site Head of Operations / GM level role.


About you


Experience in a quality driven environment is essential, such as food, pharma, healthcare, automotive, or aerospace.

You’ll be experienced in leading manufacturing operations, with additional exposure to managing CI projects.
