Responsibilities of the Technical Designer Regional Manager:
Backed by a team of support staff at their Head Office in Preston, you will be responsible for their Southern manufacturing region. The current structure consists of circa 60 independent enterprises that manufacture goods on their behalf. You will be required to build a strong working relationship with all parties and monitor, motivate, and develop their activities accordingly so to ensure production targets are achieved and high levels of customer satisfaction are delivered.
In order to meet increasing consumer demand, you will be instrumental in enhancing our production network. You will be comfortable and confident visiting and presenting to prospective manufacturers, explaining their procedures, detailing what they require from them and assessing whether each prospect can offer an excellent service and a quality product.
You will possess the ability to build a successful working relationship with the Sales Team and Regional Sales Managers, being a fountain of production knowledge, a proactive problem solver and an ambassador for effective communication between the two departments.Â
Reporting directly to the National Manager, you will be accountable for maintaining and developing the manufacturing base, quality of service and product as well as the overall regional performance. Some customer visits may also be required, so a positive customer facing character will be required.
Requirements of the Technical Designer Regional Manager:
Experience within the upholstery or soft furnishing industry would be a distinct advantage but not essential. More importantly, is the ability to inspire and influence those around you.
