This is your chance to join a family run business in capacity of MD.
When we say family run, we mean it. The culture, the ethos and the history has always been centred around working together. You’re the one who will be head of the business, reporting into the owners. If you are not currently a Managing Director, you’ll be in a position of authority (Commercial or Operations Director) looking for a step up.
Setting the scene:
This is a family owned printing business, established for over 45 years, 85 head count and a turnover of £14m. They are innovative, agile and willing to grow.
You’ll be comfortable and well versed in setting the business strategy, reviewing business performance and growth but more importantly, you’ll be engaging with the whole workforce. Clear with the vision, transparent in the delivery and participating in the achievements.
Commercial nous will be second to none. Operationally you will be strong, and your attitude will be one of ‘rolling up your sleeves’ and understanding the business on all levels. You’ll relish in the opportunity to do all the things you’d expect in capacity of MD:
- Providing leadership, management and strategy to the business.
- Overseeing operational improvement across all areas of the company.
- Creation of a long term strategic and financial plan.
- Formulating company policies and strategies with a view to driving growth.
- Providing strategic analysis, forecasts and projections to the business.
- Investigating opportunities to grow the business through strategic acquisitions.
- Overseeing the creation of strategic partnerships with relevant organisations.
Of course, you’ll be supported in the delivery by your senior management team, however your experience has to be around your delivery of such duties.
The business has been producing award winning print solutions for a long time. When we say print, it isn’t the traditional form of print (letterheads and business cards) it is the vibrant, creative side of the industry. Think visual graphics within the sport industry, exhibition displays, vehicle livery, retail displays. The works.
Now you don’t have to be from this world. In fact, it would probably be refreshing if you weren’t. It’d be helpful if you were coming from a production / manufacturing type setting though so the set up wouldn’t be so alien. What you’ll be bringing with you though is your experience in a similar role, your energetic approach and passion to be working for a business that will embrace and support change, development and growth.
