Responsibilities

  • To develop and deliver process improvement techniques, enhancing business performance, shareholder value, customer service and product quality across all aspects of the group.
  • Build on progress to date by implementing best practise across all the business value streams including support services, at various locations across the UK dealing with a number of emerging waste streams and technologies.
  • Reporting to the COO for Business Development, you will need to lead and direct a team capable of driving the change agenda throughout the business based on both its expertise and its enthusiasm.
  • Since change needs to be initiated and driven from the Board the incumbent will be expected to coach, mentor and influence the business employees from senior executives at Board level to the shop floor.

What will be Required?

'Systems thinking' is of equal importance, as will be strong hands on leadership skills where you can demonstrate experience of developing systems and processes as well as high performing teams to deliver bottom line results and succession planning.

Business Understanding:

You will be financially astute with an understanding of the balance sheet and Profit & Loss, along with a solid commercial understanding. Ideally you will be coming from the recycling industry, however industries outside of this such as FMCG, Food, Pharmaceutical, Chemical and Automotive or similar would also be considered.
