An ambitious bakery business, currently under expansion is looking for an Operations Manager to join its leadership team.
Having recently opened a new manufacturing site to increase the capacity and flexibility of the business this Bakery company is now looking to add an Operations Manager to its team. This will be a multi-site role reporting to the Operations Director with responsibility for Production, Planning, Finishing, Despatch and Warehouse.
The site manufactures a small range of products for the retail and food service sector with a real desire to widen the customer base. Product quality is high with very low levels of customer complaints however with an increase in customers there will be an increase in the level of auditing and a move to an audit ready mentality is needed. As the Operations Manager you will be a key member of the leadership team who will influence the operations teams across both sites. Broadly the challenges fall into the following categories; leadership & management; Alignment of KPIS, culture and processes; performance improvement; audit readiness; and resource planning and management.
The background that will suit this position would be of an existing Operations Manager or perhaps an ambitious person looking for their first Ops Manager role. Familiarity with BRC and a range of retailers such as M&S, Co-op, Tesco, Sainsbury's, Aldi etc. Someone high standards who knows what good looks like and has a good commercial understanding of the food industry.
