Managing Director


Sorry, applications for this position have closed

Smiths Bletchington is an Oxfordshire based independent family owned company operating sand and gravel and limestone quarries, including the marketing and distribution of primary and recycled aggregates on company operated tippers. Other activities include inert waste management and recovery, construction and plant hire and leisure angling. In business for over a century, Smiths have an enviable reputation as quality operators with a significant presence in the local area.

The impending retirement of two family members has created an exciting new opportunity for a Managing Director.

Key requirements are a strong appetite for managing and developing others, a real commitment to health, safety and the environment, strong customer focus and the ability to both improve the business and seek out appropriate new opportunities.

The position comes with full P&L accountability for overall business performance and the leadership of the senior management team.

Competitive package, benefits and bonus scheme commensurate with the role.
