Operations Director Resume
Operations directors must relate to a constantly complex global operating environment as competition can be far and wide, even if operating within a limited geographical area. Understanding latest best practice, operational risks and benchmarking competitors are often crucial, especially for improving capabilities and managing changing requirements.
Leading operational teams, managing key projects, applying methodologies (i.e. Kanban; 5S; Six Sigma; Lean) and effective planning are key to delivering productivity enhancements, greater efficiencies and cost reduction. Improving performance, process controls, analysing KPI metrics and ongoing reporting are also integral to these roles for achieving operational excellence.
Operations Director Job Description
Depending on the company, operations directors often have additional responsibilities for company procurement, supplier sourcing and managing supplier relationships (includes supply selection and performance). There may be a requirement for conducting investment appraisals (new plants), implementing capital investments (i.e. new production lines and equipment) and working with R&D teams to scale-up production capabilities for new products. These are just some of aspects we consider when writing an operations director CV.
