Although not a sales role, this does require a great deal of customer contact and stakeholder management to develop and grow the business.
This is potentially a first MD role for someone with a rare mix of leadership and commercial skills – someone who can build on both the sound business base and a highly positive team culture.
The business supports its clients in delivering innovative, transformational and mission critical projects through its team of highly skilled engineering and technical-specialist staff. The client base is growing and operates in key business sectors including aerospace and defence, energy and utilities, telecoms, transportation etc.
Key objectives for the new Managing Director revolve around organisation development, building on processes and efficiencies, and developing revenue opportunities and profitability.
There is a genuine opportunity to double the size of the business (at least) in the next three years. That won’t be easy, but it presents the chance for someone to make their reputation in this exciting and growing industry sector.
You are an exceptional leader: someone who understands that people are your principal asset – and you will be able to demonstrate how you live this every day.
You are an experienced commercial or business manager with experience in an Managed Service Provider or Recruitment Process Outsourcing related industry.
You have strong business management skills e.g. financial/P&L, systems, processes, managing performance, creating efficiencies and continuous improvement.
You are strategic and innovative, able to create clear roadmaps and persuasive business cases for investment and growth.
You are used to working at pace and in a high-pressure environment.
You are sales oriented and highly customer focused – able to support business development and account management activities.
You have experience of working with major clients in one or more key industry sectors, which include aerospace/aviation, defence, energy, rail, telecoms, transportation, utilities.
You are looking for autonomy and responsibility – a chance to play a major role in the future growth of a substantial and successful business.
This a hybrid role, requiring some time in the office, meetings with clients across the country, and some time working from home. The ideal location will have excellent transport links and easy access to London.
The right candidate will be well-rewarded: in addition to future career opportunities within the wider group, you will receive a salary and package that will be agreed and based on your knowledge and experience and with good performance incentives.
