General Manager - Precision Engineering
PACKAGE: £50,000-£64,750 Basic, Bonus, Contributory Pension
Over the years our Client has earned a deserved reputation for the quality of their third party manufacturing - a combination of an exceptionally equipped CNC Machine Shop and an experienced well trained staff means their customers have learnt to rely on their excellence. With a turnover approaching £4M and nearly 40 staff they can rightly be described as a thriving SME engineering company.
After a decade of success and sustained growth their Managing Director is planning to retire in 2018. An exciting opportunity therefore has arisen for an ambitious and talented candidate to join the organisation as General Manager with a view to becoming Managing Director when the present incumbent steps down. Initially you will be responsible for managing the key accounts, estimating, expediting and the "day to day" control of the machine shop. In time with mentoring you will assume full control of the business including strategic direction and financials (P&L, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow, etc.)
The right candidate will possess the following skill set:
* Engineering background - it is essential you understand how things are made
* Good commercial experience - you will be the face of the Company with Key Clients
* Strong people management skills
* Ability to read engineering drawings
* Excellent communication skills
* Great work ethic
Above all you must have the drive and ambition to move your career forward onto the next level.
