Bespoke manufacturing business
End to end Operations leadership

About Our Client

Established in North London in the 1960s, John Jones is a family owned and family run business, who strive to maximise the appreciation of art - both aesthetically and financially. Our team encompasses highly skilled craftspeople, conservators, technicians and designers, with a shared goal of preserving and enhancing art.

We operate from The Arts Building, a six-storey New York style warehouse offering state-of-the-art facilities. With an international reputation for commitment to the care of art, John Jones has become the trusted partner of some of the world's most prestigious institutions, collectors and artists. Customers include the Imperial War Museum, Christie's and David Hockney.

Our services include bespoke picture framing, fine art conservation and collection care. We also offer hand-made professional artists materials via our online store. We manufacture on site, and deliver world class quality.

Job Description

Our Head of Operations will lead our end to end operation - from planning and purchasing, through production and rigorous quality checks, to a satisfied customer each and every time.

Your first priority would be leadership and development of the Supply Chain/Purchasing and Production teams. You will engage them in the wider business vision, inspire them to deliver their best, and really spend the time to understand them and to develop them (both technically and behaviourally).

You will align Operations with the rest of the business via the S&OP process, ensuring that forecasting is as accurate as possible, and that production will be planned appropriately. You will make sure that the right materials are purchased for production, driving down cost whilst simultaneously keeping a relentless focus on quality.

You will embed world class manufacturing principles across each step of production - through the organisation of the team & workload, factory layout, SOPs and health & safety. You will drive a quality-obsessed operation with a continuous improvement mind-set.

The Successful Applicant

We need a charismatic leader to take on this role - someone passionate about what we do, who can motivate and inspire the team to deliver. You will have held a Head of Operations role (or similar) in a manufacturing business, and have a proven record of developing people.

You will have started your career in a factory environment (or have spent significant time in one), learning and implementing world class production principles. You will also have significant exposure to the commercial side of business - collaborating with Sales through an S&OP process, owning a P&L, and being used to contributing to the broader business strategy.

What's on Offer

A competitive package, great office environment in North London, and the chance to really mark your mark in a fantastic business.
