Managing Director

About the role

Our client, a successful privately-owned business, has grown to be a leading provider of downhole products to the international oil & gas sector. Following a period of sustained impressive growth, the company has adjusted decisively to the changing market conditions and is now in a strong position to retain its core capabilities whilst still meeting the expectations of a demanding customer base. With a view to strengthening the management team, addressing succession needs and adding fresh energy and new ideas to the business, our client is seeking to appoint a Managing Director to run the UK serviced business. This is a senior and critical appointment and the appointee will be required to demonstrate the presence and credibility to quickly command respect internally and with existing and prospective customers. This is an ambitious and dynamic organisation and candidates will also possess these characteristics.

This represents an outstanding opportunity for prospective candidates as it offers the opportunity to lead a complete business, influencing both internal and external factors directly relating to the ongoing success of the business. In addition, perceptive candidates will also recognise the future opportunity to become an increasingly influential figure in a business that has many strategic options going forward. Candidates will probably be of graduate calibre, with a proven track record of achievement at general management level carrying P&L responsibility, ideally gained within the international oilfield product manufacturing, sales and services sectors. Experience gained within a manufacturing environment must be evident within the career profile.
