Job Details

Are you ambitious, people orientated and looking to have the autonomy to drive your next site to the next level?

This is a business that is a leader within their division. You will be working with highly experienced food manufacturing professionals, reporting into an ambitious senior team that is seeking their next Site Director successor.

This site is true to their values; you will be people orientated and be passionate about your own career development as well as developing those around you. After all, a business is as successful as those who are working within/running it!

Current focus is heavily within the day to day operation. If you prefer to spend a majority of your time behind the desk, this role may not be for you. You will thrive from getting into the thick of the action; working/engaging with the work force and driving the site forward with a strong presence on the factory floor.

You will of course also be involved heavily in the long term strategy for the business. If you are keen to roll your sleeves up and develop the team whilst getting involved in ongoing projects across the business that will aid the long term strategy, this role may be for you.

Responsibilities are typical of a senior operations position within the food industry. You will come from a strong background of Operations/Factory/Manufacturing Management within the food industry and have overseen significant teams in the past.

Reporting into the Site Director you will have an outstanding mentor, who is looking for their next successor. Long term this will give you many development opportunities and exposure that will enable you to move to the next level.

You will be able to demonstrate many examples of quick problem solving, having a customer focus (retail) and thrive within a fast paced environment. To be considered, you must have a strong food manufacturing environment within chilled or strong short shelf life product background.

If you would like further information please apply, email your CV to or call Lisa on 01780 483999 for a confidential conversation.
