Job Title: General Manager Location: Crawley Salary: £60,000 per annum benefits Our client has a fantastic reputation for delivering quality temporary structures to a whole range of clients including some of the leading professional sports clubs across the UK. The business is now reaching a point where they are looking to hire a General Manager who can take part in an MBI over the next 5 years or so and continue to drive the organisation forward. This is a brand new role within the organisation and as such the owners are looking for a General Manager who can bring an entrepreneurial streak to the team and help the business develop further. This is the chance to take a brilliant, proven and respected business and make improvements to the organisation across the board. Beyond being responsible for driving the strategic growth of the business, as General Manager you will be fully responsible for all technical enquiries (basic CAD experience and engineering qualifications would be highly desirable) and act as the client facing part of the senior management team.
