Supply Chain and Operations Director – Artex, Ruddington

Are you passionate about creating an open and engaging culture? Are you able to act with pace and agility? Are you results focused? – If this sounds like you, then you already align to most of the Saint-Gobain 'Attitudes' and way we like to work at Artex.

How will you add value in this role?

Are you the person we are looking for?

Be a strategic thinker, able to keep one eye on how we need to develop for the future, whilst being proactive in rolling up your sleeves and getting stuck into the detail when needed.
Be confident working as part of the senior leadership team; Whilst we don't require someone with years of 'exec' / board level experience, the ability to work and influence at this level is very important.
Focus on our customer's future needs and continuously improve and develop how we operate in all your key areas of responsibility.
Naturally be able to lead and empower your people to perform at their very best.
Be comfortable to constructively challenge at all levels.
