Head of eCommerce (Manufacturing Company - Industrial Cleaning Products ) Our client is a leading supplier of cleaning products to the UK, Europe and the world and have been established for many years. They have recently embarked upon an eCommerce division to their business and are now looking for a dynamic individual who will oversee and drive this side of their business forward. This role is a senior management role and requires someone who has ideally come from an industrial cleaning background or potentially someone with a degree in chemistry who has worked within an eCommerce business or a sales environment. Candidates must have some relevant experience in one of these areas in order to be considered for this role. Our client requires a candidate who has energy, passion, first class managerial experience and a real 'go getter’ who will assist in taking their business forward to a new level. They also require someone hands on who will come in and truly understand the different facets of the business and the teams that play an integral part in their new world of eCommerce. On a day to day basis you will manage three very different teams from Customer Service to Warehouse and Technical Production. You will nurture, coach, train and develop the existing teams and be involved in all HR and ER issues. You will also be responsible for driving forward the sales agenda across the company’s different brands for their business to consumer market. You will have full responsibility for the P&L and budgetary control, therefore our client requires a candidate who has proven experience working within the financial arena of a business – maybe you have run your own business and have all the qualities, experience and expertise that our client is looking for and you are looking for an exciting new challenge with a progressive, innovative company? You will also be highly numerate and be responsible for the forecasting and stock holding of core products. So once again you will have experience in this area in order to be considered for this role. No two days will be the same but you will be expected to ensure that all internal processes and procedures run to maximum capacity and customer service delivery is at the forefront of everything that you do. You will be a relationship builder across the business and to your ever growing client base where face to face meetings will be a key factor in developing the business and your client’s trust and respect. Your management style must be adaptable to meet the needs of the different areas that you will manage – but you must be influential at all levels and have a professional yet approachable presence to everyone that you deal with.Charisma, personality and a positive ‘can do’ attitude are paramount – with an entrepreneurial flair and vision for taking this area of the business to a whole new level. Our client seeks a creative thinker who has a proven background in managing and growing eCommerce platforms – you will be knowledgeable about Digital Marketing, including Pay Per Click (PPC) advertising, Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) – both onsite and offsite optimisation, social media engagement – Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest as a sales tool and also using email marketing to drive sales. On a day to day basis you will liaise across all functions of the business from Finance to Marketing, Operations, Procurement and NPD, so once again exposure and experience of this level of interaction is essential. This is a really exciting and rare opportunity for a candidate looking to embark upon a new journey within their career and for the chance to be part of the wider management team of this very successful business. They are looking for someone who will truly embrace the business and manage and grow it as though it was their own, but at the same time be part of the wider business and channel all their energies into making our client’s vision a reality. Our client offers an excellent salary/benefits package which will be discussed on interview, together with a company car and the chance to be part of the profit related bonus scheme. Please note that this role is to be based in the Redditch area of Birmingham but will involve travel across the UK from time to time, therefore our client seeks a candidate with a full clean driving licence and the ability to travel when required. Please send a full and comprehensive CV outlining your career history in full together with a covering letter demonstrating your interest and suitability for this role, together with your current/most recent salary/package and your salary expectations for this role. Please Note: When applying for a position online, please understand that whilst we review all CVs and applications that are sent to us, due to the large volume that we receive on a regular basis, we can only respond to those candidates that have been successful with their application. As such, if you do not hear from us within 14 working days, please accept that your application has been unsuccessful. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
