Head of Operations Vacancy - Gloucester £80,000
A global leader in the manufacture of innovative products within the medical device field is currently looking for a passionate, innovative and ambitious Operations Manager to lead the strategic operational development of the site in an exciting period of expansion and increase to their production facility based near Gloucester.
Specialising within medical device manufacturing, my client boasts the leading share of UK and international markets, and, as a result of a recent increase in demand and product range, are now looking for someone who can provide leadership and guidance to manage this rapid period of growth.
At present, some of the operational strategy is not as focused and planned as they would like so as a result they are looking for someone with experience of developing and implementing site wide Quality, Cost and Delivery strategy in a fast moving, highly demanding 24/7 environment to ensure continued excellence in the facility.
Ideally you will come from a non-automated manufacturing background with a demonstrable track record of ramping up manufacturing output and implementing and improving operational business strategy.

-Must be able to demonstrate proven experience in the ability to lead and coach senior level staff as well as manage change through them
-The ability to converse with all levels of staff from shop floor to stake holder in the business
Having been to the site and witnessed the current operation and plans for future growth, I can honestly say this is one of the most ambitious engineering sites I have come across with leadership that will take them to next level.
With planned output increase and headcount increase already in place, this is an opportunity to join a business and manage the continuing growth. This is a great opportunity to stamp your mark at a growing and ambitious company who will be able to take your career forward to the next level.
Salary on offer for this role is around the £80, 000 mark with potential flexibility dependant on background and what you can bring to the position.
As this is an urgent role for the business, there will be interviews scheduled in the coming days/next week with a view to make a decision exceptionally quickly so, if you are interested, give me a call on xxxxxxx xxxxxxx8 or attach your CV by return email and I will happily discuss the role in more detail.
