Head of Continuous Improvement - Gwynedd

Head of Continuous Improvement Jobs

There is no such thing as the perfect business. Every hour, inefficiencies and bad practice are going on without the owners’ knowledge, or the owners know they exist but are powerless to act. This is where the head of continuous improvement comes in. It is an analytical role that constantly audits every business process and looks for inefficiencies that can be ironed out. Depending on the size of the company, this can be a one-person job, heading up a small team or employing dozens of auditors to make the business better.

But it’s not just about the money – not directly, anyway. Often, an improvement is simply one that helps staff with their work and removes those irritations and bureaucracy that reduces job satisfaction. Sometimes it’s an environmental improvement that doesn’t have obvious financial implications but can have longer-term benefits. Improvement takes many forms, and once the head of continuous improvement has got under the skin of the company and found out exactly how it operates, it’s inevitable that the financial benefits will follow.

The skills required

The job of head of continuous improvement has two main strands – analyzing the financial matters and seeking out other procedural activities that can be improved. You will need to be prepared to get your hands dirty (sometime literally) by delving into the business, talking to employees, observing and measuring the way people work and researching alternative methodologies that can create efficiencies.

The head of continuous improvement may sometimes need to make unpopular decisions, for example choosing to outsource elements of the business or making it less top-heavy if inefficiencies are identified. While the final decision will be made by the board, you must have the confidence in your convictions to make such recommendations. Of course, the opposite is also true, and your recommendations could lead to the growth of the company. As long as you have performed detailed analyses, you will be able to present accurate projections to the board.

Head of Continuous Improvement Jobs in Gwynedd

Gwynedd is the county that takes up the whole of the north west of Wales, Anglesey aside. Within its borders are a range of well known holiday resorts and the highest mountain outside Scotland, Snowdon in the Snowdonia National Park. This National Park takes up much of Gwynedd’s area, and attracts visitors from all over the world all the year round. Key settlements in the county are Bangor, Caernarfon (the administrative headquarters), Pwllheli, Porthmadog, Barmouth, Dollgellau, Blaenau Ffestiniog and Beddgelert. Before tourism, the region had a proud mining heritage.

The county of Gwynedd is the second largest by area in Wales but has a relatively small population, 120,000, partly because much of the mountainous land is uninhabitable. However, the static population is only part of the story, and the vast numbers of tourists mean that the supply chain and logistics industry is kept busy. That is good news for anyone seeking Head of Continuous Improvement jobs, and they are quite common in Gwynedd.
