With over 800 employees worldwide, with more than 10 operational state-of-the-art facilities across the world, our client is a well-respected global player within the Medical Devices/Pharmaceutical market and has one of the world’s leading reputations for their laboratory capabilities. They are known as being a market leader with their quality of service and their technical capability, and they are well respected within their field for the calibre of individual they develop, as well as the high level of integrity they hold within the organisation. They have a high customer focus and within the business they put the client at the heart of everything they do. Distributed around the globe, their sites offer diverse strengths and capabilities in analysis, with an unprecedented range of analytical platforms and ‘blended’ analytical techniques.

Their attitude towards company growth has always been centred around the development and retention of their employees, which is shown in their low staff turnover and their excellent employee engagement. To achieve their future growth expectations, they are recruiting for an Operations Director to help them strengthen their presence in Europe and to accelerate their growth potential. Whilst they are hugely respected within their field, their presence is not as widespread as you’d expect, which means that the successful candidate within this position will have a fantastic opportunity to really develop their relationships with new businesses.

  • We are looking for candidates that have strong General Management experience within a Laboratory environment.
  • Candidates must have experience of running change/business improvement projects, they must understand work flows and laboratory based processes, including how to improve efficiency and staff utilisation.
  • Candidates must be able to demonstrate previous experience in leading the operational growth of a laboratory-based business, by demonstrating facts and figures from previous positions.
  • Candidates must be able to communicate effectively and engage teams of staff (both technical and commercial) towards the achievement of stretching goals and objectives.
  • Candidates who are equally confident in front of staff and clients would be at an advantage.
  • Candidates with experience in operational growth planning, organisational development, staff engagement, training and development of staff through mentoring/coaching, and planning would be at a real advantage.
  • Experience of presentations, networking, public speaking, or producing white papers in this field would be an interesting bonus.
  • The ability to lead a team of over 30 people is paramount to success within this role.
  • Candidates with qualifications or work experience in the field of Analytical Chemistry would be at a strong advantage.
