Full Time
Contract Type

A long-established Leeds based printer is on the search for a General Manager to take day to day control. We are looking for a star candidate who can drive the effective strategic management and direction of the business in terms of all activities i.e. sales, commercial, business development, production processes, supply chain, H&S/quality.

We are looking for a driven individual with bags of experience in the printing industry. Your role will be to guide and direct each department, ensuring organisational goals are met. The best General Managers establish goals that force the organisation to stretch to achieve them. Not unrealistic ones that are bound to be missed, but goals that won’t allow anyone to forget about the competitive arena in which our client operates. 

You will ensure effective operations by monitoring results, comparing actual performance to established standards and taking appropriate actions as required. It is therefore important we find someone who is results driven with a proven track record of positively affecting an organisation. Ultimately as General Manager, you will ensure profitability by managing output to achieve operational excellence.

This role requires a self-motivated, flexible team player who can show an ability to multi-task in a fast-paced environment, as well as strong attention to detail and accuracy. The core skills of drive and energy combined with proven management ability will be key to success in this role.

Please note, this role will also be client facing and will involve developing the firm’s reputation. Our client is therefore looking for candidates who have come up the sales/account management route rather than being from a production background.
