You're not a wimp are you? Because this job definitely isn't for wimps! Only the most courageous of Operations Directors are welcome here, the kind of Operations Director that isn't afraid to get their hands dirty. The very best kind of Operations Director that relishes a challenge, who looks at a struggling industrial manufacturing operation, looks at its inefficiencies and sees an opportunity instead of a problem. Sound like you? Read on...
I have been exclusively engaged by a billion dollar turnover, industrial manufacturing & engineering group to help fix a problematic business unit in their global network. The issues begin even before the manufacturing process does with long lead times of semi-bespoke components affecting their materials management and forecasting. On site there are further inefficiencies with little or no KPIs in place making identifying bottlenecks difficult. Some equipment needs updating too, but this won't happen until the other issues have been resolved.
You are an Operations Director with a strong sense of accountability, materials management & forecasting expertise, continuous improvement & lean manufacturing skills and a problem solving mindset. If you are able to wrestle this 35 man operation to optimum performance, then the fun begins. In the words of my client 'you can fix whatever you want!' and your responsibility, if you perform well, could be extended onto a regional scope with oversight responsibility for other business units, the 3rd party logistics network and whatever else you want to wrap your hands around.
