As a result of a proposed retirement, Park Communications, an award-winning printing company, has an unmissable opportunity for a target-driven high calibre Operations Director to join the Board. This is an opportunity to be part of a senior management team developing and implementing the future strategy for this successful business.
We are looking for a strategic thinker who will formulate and implement manufacturing programmes that improve our competitive position and profitability, and who will make a valuable contribution to wider board discussions.
You will manage and coordinate typesetting, print production and mailing operations from within a beautifully equipped modern factory in London, close to Canary Wharf, adopting best practices and initiating processes and new technologies which minimise costs through effective utilisation of manpower, equipment, facilities and materials. A strong commercial acumen and financial understanding will be essential.
As Operations Director, your role will be to maintain the highest level of customer satisfaction while maximising efficiency.
Managing 80 manufacturing staff will be a key part of this role, and therefore we are looking for someone who can command authority and gain respect from colleagues.
Candidates must come from, and show, a real passion for the industry, and be able to impress with their knowledge of relevant technologies.
Successful candidates will be highly ambitious, exhibit a confident ability to manage change, and have a hunger to play a broad part in our long-term success.
An excellent rewards package commensurate with contribution, including equity for the exceptional candidate.
