Change presents enormous opportunity - Strategic leadership position

This South Island-based organisation, a substantial player in the primary processing sector, is entering a new era which necessitates

change to meet the demands of increased competition and customer expectation. This new Senior Executive role will provide

the direction and impetus to shape the future business, maximising shareholder value and business profitability during an

exciting time of growth and development.

As a practical, results focused, commercially astute Operations Manager, this role provides the opportunity to challenge long

established business practices to improve business performance. With reports responsible for managing two processing plants,

this role requires a strong leader capable of realigning the business to meet the requirements of a new, market orientated

culture. This is a change management role, bringing new perspectives to a traditional processing-focused business and encouraging

a paradigm shift through a consultative but pragmatic management style.

The successful applicant will be an influential leader with vision offering a broad operational management background gained

from the primary processing or food manufacturing sectors. In-depth understanding of planning systems and proven experience

in the areas of continuous improvement and profit optimisation is expected.
