Operations Director - Newcastle upon Tyne

Operations Director jobs

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.

The skills required

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.

Operations Director Jobs in Newcastle upon Tyne

Newcastle upon Tyne has long been an important location in Britain. During Roman times, a fort called Pons Aelius was erected and served as the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall, while the Duke of Normandy built a castle here in 1080.

In the Middle Ages, Newcastle was a fortress on the northern border during the wars against Scotland. By the 16th century, the area had become known for its coal production. The city enjoyed a monopoly on shipping the fuel and thus created a rivalry with other nearby towns like Tyneside and Sunderland.

Printing, glassworks and shipbuilding were a big part of the city's economy as the Industrial Revolution took hold. Then, 19th century innovations such as safety lamps, improved milling techniques, electricity generation and light bulbs paved the way for the city's prosperity.

Of course, you can't forget one of Newcastle's most beloved products: Newcastle Brown Ale. Also known as Newkie Broon, this drink first went into production in 1928 and has been a favourite beverage ever since. Production, however, has been moved to North Yorkshire.

Today, the Tyneside conurbation is among the 10 most populous in the UK, making it a good choice for those seeking new Operations Director vacancies.

Heavy industry has declined over the last 50 years, to be replaced mainly with retail and the service sector. Just some of the many companies that are headquartered or have regional offices in the city include Greggs the baker, the Go-Ahead Group, Northern Rock, Proctor & Gamble UK and Sage, an enterprise software company.
