It doesn’t matter if a company operates within the IT, healthcare, manufacturing, food and beverage, medical, defence, transport or retail industry - careful planning and logistical organisation is essential for success.
Operations Directors play an important part in ensuring everything runs smoothly. They work to develop various parts of the supply chain and are responsible for keeping all activities to budget, on schedule and within quality expectations.
By continually monitoring key performance indicators, devising new strategies and implementing changes, the Operations Director will be able to ensure not only that the company thrives, but also that customers are happy with the service.
Of course, you will be in charge of a team - responsible for ensuring members of staff are properly trained, motivated and doing the right tasks to the expected standard.
Those applying for roles as Operations Directors should be excellent communicators with good negotiation, organisation and management skills. A strong commercial and financial awareness is essential and an understanding of the employer’s particular sector can also be advantageous.
Depending on the role, a willingness to travel on short notice may be necessary, while foreign language fluency can also be beneficial.
No matter which job you apply for, however, you should be a highly motivated self-starter who has a strong drive to improve results and who can deal with high-stress situations with ease.

As the UK’s capital and largest city, it should come as no surprise that London offers a wealth of opportunities for those seeking procurement, logistics and supply chain jobs .
Indeed, there’s something for everyone in the Big Smoke, and while the soot and pollution that gave the city its nickname during the Industrial Revolution have mostly disappeared, there are plenty of reminders of days gone by - such as the warehouses and docks that line the Thames.
If you're looking for a Operations Director job in London, the city offers something for everyone. And, although the capital is known for its high cost of living, most employers take this into account when setting wages - in most cases, the so-called London allowance will add between £3,000 and £4,000 to your salary.
Whether your sector of choice is financial, media, retail, electronics, medical, manufacturing, telecommunications, transport, automotive or even government or defence, London has it.
From Ford to Sony, Barclays to Metro Newspapers and Sainsbury’s to Warburtons, the list of British, European and international firms that call London home goes on and on.
And don’t forget the companies that specialise in moving people and parcels around. With organisations like the Port of London and Transport for London, several international airports and trains that depart to domestic and international destinations, it takes a lot of people to keep London moving smoothly.
At Cast UK, our team of consultants are experts in their industries and we are committed to helping make the perfect candidate-vacancy match for our clients.
What’s more, we have regional specialists who can provide advice and assistance to those looking for fresh Operations Director opportunities in new locations like London.
