Sheep or Shepherd?
If I was to sit here and ask you all how many of you consider yourselves to be a leader, I bet most of you would say yes. Admit it.
But you're a proper leader. You're not someone that hides in the shadows and tries to pass the success of others as your own, but someone that thrives off grabbing the Technical department by its cojones and dragging it forward.
Look, there's nothing wrong with wanting an easy role that doesn't really present much of a challenge. But if that is the case, I'd probably stop reading now. But let's be honest, you get a greater sense of achievement from turning things round, consistently hitting targets and just generally being a bit of a legend.
Being the leader you are, you thrive off man-management and seeing your team succeed. And given the size of the team you'll be responsible for, experience of this is key!
You might be sat there thinking 'this is all great, James. But this is what I do already?' Yes, you might be. However in this industry, as you know, it's difficult to get the full backing and autonomy from the MD to make change and be able to do things your way. No interference from the layers of managers or group bods sticking their oar in.
On top of this, you'll have the chance to work closely with a crazy amount of retailers. Meaning you can add even more of those big names to your already impressive CV. Names that you won't find at any other companies.
If you're sitting there worrying about product type, you needn't, as it really doesn't matter. As long as it's been within food manufacturing.
If you genuinely see yourself as a leader of people, and fancy testing yourself, apply now or call James Cracknell on 01733 391515
