An Operations Manager is required to lead a privately-owned manufacturer of precision-machined supplying customers in automotive, food and power industries amongst others, at their factory in Coventry.

In recent years the business has grown around £7.5 million turnover and the business has targeted an ambitious £20m turnover. The business is varied and fast-moving with short lead times and an emphasis on customer service, proud of its ability to react quickly to customer requirements. This means ever-changing production schedules and requires flexibility and adaptability on the shop floor. It could be described as organised chaos, but it wins business; the Operations Manager will bring it all together!

The Operations Manager will be responsible for a diverse team, reporting directly into the MD and leading approximately 25 reports within the machine shop. You will manage a fast-paced and highly flexible production facility, driving improvements by managing daily KPIs and establishing processes and procedures within the business to facilitate a more efficient and reliable operation.

You will be a results-focused and energetic leader who can demonstrate the ability to motivate your team, provide a positive working culture, deliver improved results and ensure good processes and procedures are in place. It is vital that all applicants for the role have progressed their career within a machining environment and have expert knowledge of both manual & CNC machining processes. Essential experience and/or skills will include:

- Experience of leading a highly flexible, fast-paced CNC & manual machining facility as Operations Manager, Manufacturing Manager or Production Manager;
- Demonstrable experience improving performance to delivery, cost, quality and safety using appropriate KPIs;
- Continuous improvement focused and able to create a culture of improvement;
- A highly skilled communicator at all levels.

The successful Operations Manager will receive a basic salary of approximately £50,000 depending on experience plus a company vehicle, production bonus, pension and 25 days' holiday plus stats.
