I am recruiting on behalf of a client within the contract catering arena. I am looking for a proven senior operations director to take responsibility for the entire operational structure of this privately owned medium sized contract caterer based in the Southern Home Counties.

Whilst this role is operational you will have excellent client skills so any time spent on client retention is a definite advantage and should be highlighted when applying. This role is a healthy balance between client management, strategy and people management. You will of course have the appropriate commercial skills to manage a significant multi million pound business and this must be well evidenced in the cv. Please give details of the size of business you have managed if it is not obvious.

The Director of Operations will have six operational direct reports each managing a geographical patch, mostly within the home counties with expansion on the cards. In order to be successful in this role the client is looking for proven skills at managing in excess of 150 locations around the Southern England. Contract catering experience is an essential requirement and without that I am afraid I will not be able to progress your application.

This company has undergone a whole programme of change enabling this business to scale up from this point forward whilst ensuring a very consistent, well defined product and service delivery to each of the locations. It is therefore likely that you will have worked in a structured environment at some point previously with very clear channels of communication both up and down the organisation.

There is much excitement ahead for this business and for this individual as not only will you be a key member of the leadership team.
