Operations Director

Operations Director - (Managing Director Designate)
This is a unique opportunity to join a well-established and respected manufacturer of industrial instrumentation. The company supplies products to a diverse range of customers both in the UK and internationally; predominately in the water and electricity sectors.
The current owner and MD is now looking for a successor to allow him to move into a Chairman role and eventually hand over the day to day operations and the development of the company's future.
The candidate will be a strong, charismatic and focused individual who is initially ready to take on the challenging role of Operations Director and in the longer term, promotion to Managing Director.
You will need to have a "hands on" technical background and it is essential that you have a proven track record of leading the operations in a precision engineered, high quality environment - ideally supplying into either the water, electricity or instrumentation and control markets.
As Operations Director, you will be providing leadership and strategic direction through proactive involvement in the day to day activities; including reviewing manufacturing and production processes, product development and engineering improvements.
You will have to demonstrate empathy and understanding of the company's history and processes to ensure a smooth transition and continuity for employees and customers.
