About the job

Do you dream about taking that next step up in your career and becoming the managing director of one of the leading printing companies in the UK? Well you could be one step closer to making that dream come true. 

Not only is this a great progression opportunity, it is the chance to join a company that has continually invested in technology to place them at the forefront of the printing world. They have shown innovation and embraced the need to offer a complete marketing solution across digital and printed mediums. You will be shown the ropes and learn what the driving forces are behind being a company of this stature, with the anticipation of one day becoming their MD. 

The role of highest-ranking manager in the organisation is undoubtedly responsible for the overall success of the business. We are looking for someone who has the aptitude for preparing and implementing comprehensive business plans to facilitate achievement. 

Steering the company to the most profitable direction while implementing vision, mission and long-term goals will require a strategist and a leader. Strategies will ensure the company is constantly moving towards fulfilling objectives both short and long term, and that it does not diverge from strategic guidelines set out by the board.

So what type of profile will fit this pivotal role? Forward thinking is at the heart of what this print pioneer does, so exhibiting this personality trait is paramount. You will have shown true innovation in previous senior managerial roles, and will continue to do so throughout your tenure as Head of Operations, improving processes through the implementation of lean manufacturing methods.  These skills will have been honed through a career of working up the ranks in production/operations roles. It is inevitable that when there are so many variables to consider in an industry like print, everything doesn’t always go to plan. Most of the time you can count on there being some deviation from the original blueprint, so as managing director you must adapt to changes and make quick operational adjustments when required. Solutions to any problems will not always be obvious and straightforward, but while acting as Head of Operations,  you will show you have the capacity to think outside the box to formulate new methodologies – these are the exact qualities our client is looking for to be their next Managing Director.
