Our client is a large, international, long-established, and highly regarded business that provides specialist engineering expertise and services. Its high-growth subsidiary which designs and produces modular standardised shelters, workspaces and accommodation based on ISO containers, is emerging as the market leader.
Product applications range from field hospitals, communication centres, power generation, and water purification, to accommodation for personnel in adverse and extreme environments, mobile CT scanners, and many more. Rising demand is coming from National Governments, Defence & Military, NGOs and supporting businesses for rapid deployment to natural disasters, floods, wildfires, earthquakes, battlefields, population displacement, health emergencies and other critical, challenging, crisis situations.
Production of our client’s deployable infrastructure is primarily in the UK, but is increasingly international with plans already in place for major investment and a new production facility in North America.
The new role of Operations Director reports to the recently appointed Managing Director who is leading the drive for significant growth by shaping the market through the setting of standards for modular compatibility, connectivity and interoperability. The Operations Director will have a major role to play in delivering the products that are likely to dominate this market. Through a handful of direct reports, the Operations Director will be responsible for leading on all matters in Production, Supply Chain, Quality and Health & Safety and for the transformation of the business into an efficient automated and technology-enabled producer of robust and reliable product. In addition to the upskilling of an already committed and capable workforce, the Operations Director will be the lead on a relocation and reconfiguration of the UK operations and responsible for the establishment, commissioning and in due course performance of a new facility in North America. There is substantial investment coming into this business and the expansion in production must be matched by a transformation in processes to deliver best-in-class products to customers. It is important that the Operations Director is an inspirational and credible figure within the company – this is a demanding hands-on role which will require both leadership and collaboration.
