My client is a profitable c£15m t/o privately-owned group of companies with a very large and geographically diverse property portfolio plus a significant number of small trading companies.

A recent change in the Group’s leadership and direction, together with a subsequent shift in culture and operational style, has created the opportunity for an Operations Director who will report to the Chairman and be responsible for the professional, efficient and profitable management of the organization and the leadership of its teams of people.

This is a hands-on and challenging role with an emphasis on strong leadership and the implementation of efficient procedures, systems and controls.   The remit includes the leadership of seven direct reports who in turn manage small teams of people across a series of separate business entities in multiple locations.  The structure is complex necessitating excellent organizational abilities and close attention to detail.

The successful candidate will be a high calibre general manager with the drive and breadth of experience to be capable of leading change and delivering results through first class leadership, project management, communication and organisational skills.

There is a strong emphasis on financial management and operational control requiring strong numerical and systems skills.  Previous experience must include managing multiple direct reports and inspiring them to motivate their teams over a broad base of operations and across many sites.  There will be the need to travel every month.

Above all the successful candidate will be a team player with a genuine understanding of and empathy with long standing and evolving family owned SME businesses.
