Can you spot a career boosting opportunity before anyone else?
For our client to process your application, you must have managed a high volume retail motor group or PLC multi-site company, where you can demonstrate an exceptional career with at least 4 years continual operational experience at that level.
As Operations Manager, you will report to the Directors, you will lead the management team and make a significant contribution to the future growth and development of an importer/retail operation that is currently delivering 10,000 new and used vehicles every year ; handling 95,000 on-going servicing/repairs per year - and selling £15M Parts & Accessories every year. Current staff headcount approaching 500 people, from seventeen different nationalities.
Key challenges will include responsibility for financial budgets, planning and implementing strategic and variable marketing programmes to achieve budget/targets for each department, ensuring they maximise the bottom line.
You should have real vision and be an effective negotiator, with a thorough knowledge of motor trade DMS and an analytical and numerical mind that will enable you to negotiate pricing, supply and marketing support from the manufacturer.
You should be capable of working under pressure while having the stature to quickly win the respect of colleagues - and the personal commitment and ambition to further develop your career to take on the most senior operational role in the company.
If your career is matching the job-profile, a secure long-term employment contract is offered for someone in the age group, 40-50, single or married couple only who can commit to living and working overseas for at least 5 years. Middle East experience not essential.
Interviews to be held in the UK during January. So in the first instance please email a CV that details full family and current remuneration details to:
