Commercial Director - Fantastic career development opportunity to join an established, respected and well funded SME business - North West - circa £50k-£60k + benefits + equity potential

Job Description

Our client is an established Health & Safety and Risk Management Consultancy providing services to clients within a range of industries including Construction, Engineering and Manufacturing sectors and has a client list which includes the MoD, BAE Systems and AMEC.

Well respected within their industry, the organisation has enjoyed a period of sustained growth throughout the last 15 Years. Whilst they are based predominantly within the North West, the company has expanded their service offering to cover corporate clients operating nationwide.

As part of their succession planning, our client is now looking to appoint a Commercial Director who it is expected will progress to become Managing Director of the business.

Working in closely with the existing Technical Director and fellow Board members, the role will involve devising and then implementing a strategy to ensure the continued success and growth of the company. This will initially be to consolidate the company's position in the market place, before then focusing on the continued development of the business including exploring new and existing markets and opportunities.

The successful candidate will lead a busy professional services team of approximately 25 technical and administrative staff, overseeing bid processes in line with robust financial controls, through to the planning the delivery of services to the client's satisfaction whilst ensuring profit targets are achieved by anticipating workload and effectively allocation of manpower.

With progression to Managing Director in mind, you will also take responsibility for; contract negotiations in relation to legal and insurance issues, manage relationships with key customers, and most importantly business development and marketing activities in regards to new markets and services.

Applicants will need to be natural charismatic leaders who have achieved business growth ideally within the Construction services, Engineering services and/or Professional services sectors. Candidates will need to have excellent interpersonal, communication and negotiation skills, and whilst knowledge of Health & Safety and Risk Management is advantageous, more important is the ability to demonstrate a proven track record in developing and mentoring the people in your team in order to facilitate organisational success, ideally within a small but fast growing business, division or subsidiary company.

This is an incredible opportunity for an experienced manager to oversee the continued growth of an established organisation whose innovative practice and services currently places them at the head of their field. As well as a competitive remuneration package, there is also the prospect of equity for the successful candidate.

For a confidential discussion to see if this opportunity is suitable for your next career challenge please forward your CV with current remuneration package or contact Jamie Swain or Abi Grogan on 0845 003 9195.
