North West - Hybrid Working

 

Commutable from Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Cheshire, West Yorkshire Bury, Rochdale, Bolton, Ramsbottom, Manchester, Failsworth, Salford, Oldham, Blackburn, Preston, Burnley, Wigan., Halifax, Bradford, Warrington, Keighley, Huddersfield

 

Our client, a wholesale distributor, is at the cutting edge of the renewable and alternative energy sector and has significant and growing market share through its unrivalled product quality and service value proposition. Its customer base includes B2C and B2B. There has never been a better time to join them and to play a key role in the expansion of its warehousing and distribution capacity, initially across the UK and then Europe.

 

The first stage of this is an overhaul of the facility in North West, followed by an investment in a new facility in the Bristol area. Tentative further plans exist for additional capacity in the UK. Additionally, the business is expanding its operation in Europe, namely Germany.

 

It now wishes to strengthen its HR and Talent Acquisition Team with the appointment of an Interim Talent Acquisition Partner to head up high volume recruiting for its rapidly expanding warehousing/distribution centre operations. A permanent opportunity is also available.

 

Our client is looking for a graduate-calibre recruiter who knows that there's more to recruiting new staff than simply posting an advert and hoping for the best.

 

Due to the increasing numbers of people they need to bring into their business, they recognise the requirement to create a robust Talent Acquisition function. Your core focus will be to head up specific high volume recruitment campaigns to recruit operational staff for its expanding multi site warehousing operations in the North West/Yorkshire. The emphasis will be on attracting and recruiting talent directly via direct sourcing, talent attraction and social media, whilst proactively supporting senior warehousing and logistics operational leadership as the business grows and delivering a fantastic experience to candidates ensuring employee engagement and retention. You will undertake salary benchmarking to ensure that our client remains competitive to attract talent. You will undertake both telephone screening and first stage interviews alongside hiring managers.

 

As the Talent Acquisition Partner, you will use your skills and knowledge to develop an Employer Value Proposition and promote the company's brand in the broader marketplace. By developing a compelling online presence, and framework for capitalising on regional recruitment fairs, you'll create a talent pipeline of candidates interested in working for the company.

 

Our client is growing rapidly and needs to ensure they are attracting and onboarding the best calibre people. As such, you will need to work closely with department heads and the senior management team to understand the future requirements then create appropriate talent pipelines.

 

Having worked, ideally in an-house recruitment role, you'll know what constitutes a high-quality recruitment process at every stage, from the initial briefing, sourcing, and selection to the onboarding of new hires. You will be experienced in high volume in house recruitment, within any functional area eg warehousing and logistics, manufacturing and engineering, hospitality and catering etc and you'll be skilled with industry standard ATS systems.

 

Given the volume of recruitment required, you will need to develop relationships with trusted partner agencies and ensure their processes are of an equally high standard to yours.

 

Our client views this as a long-term, permanent position. However, due to the urgency of this requirement, they are happy to consider an interim role for someone to strengthen the talent acquisition function as a one-off project while they recruit the permanent team.

 

As you can see, there are many strands to this role that we'll need to discuss in more detail, so please indicate your interest by sending your CV, quoting reference LX1152301 to without delay

Managing Director – SME 

“Niche Market Leader seeks Transformation & Growth Specialist with excellent Sales & Marketing background to further expand and develop its online, direct and distributor sales channels.”

£80-100,000 + Excellent Benefits 

Hampshire

Do you have what it takes to lead a successful manufacturing company? If you have a proven track record in sales and marketing, combined with previous experience at Director level, transforming and growing SME businesses, our client would be interested in talking to you.

If you’re looking for a company that can offer you stability, success, and a whole lot of opportunity, then you’ve found it. Our client’s manufacturing company is one of the most successful and well-established in the area. Due to retirement, they’re looking for a new Managing Director to help them take things to the next level.

Their production processes are efficient and well-run, so they aren’t looking for someone to come in with extensive operational experience. However, they would prefer you to have previously worked in a light manufacturing or agricultural products/equioment manufacturing environment.

The person they’re looking for must have a solid sales and marketing background, as that’s where they feel you can add the most value. They have a unique product solution they supply into a niche and profitable sector and have gained an enviable reputation. However, they know they can sell more, so they want their new MD to be an experienced marketer to lead the sales and marketing functions.

In particular, they see tremendous opportunities in developing their e-commerce services. But they know they will need some rebranding and website development before being able to target that market.  

As for your background, our client expects you to be university degree educated perhaps with a strong interest or qualification in marketing/CIM and experience growing a family/privately owned business. From a sales perspective, you’ll have a strong entrepreneurial slant that helps uncover and develop new markets and lead negotiations with distributors to extend market reach.

As this is a Managing Director role, you will be an analytical and strategic, and a strong visionary leader with the capability to inspire, engage and motivate your team as you reshape and structure the business for optimal growth.  

Ideally, you’ll have worked in the agricultural products/consumables manufacturing sector, but our client is happy to consider candidates from other light manufacturing backgrounds.

You’ll be based at our client’s HQ in Hampshire, so proximity to their site is vital.

As you can imagine, there are many other details to discuss, so please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference LX 1054580

Brexit has presented many companies with challenges transporting between Ireland and the UK. Our client is ideally situated to help and advise customers on how to negotiate the new procedures.

You'll be based from their head office in Ireland as you will be a key member of the senior executive team, and our client is also happy to support your relocation if you're currently based elsewhere.
