Job Details

A rare and rather exciting opportunity for a high-calibre hands-on individual to manage the day to day operations of this British Producer and eCommerce Retailer of Motorcycle Flyscreens. This is a crucial leadership role reporting into the Founder where your brilliance can have a real impact on the future of this highly successful and established brand. We don’t expect you to be the finished article but if you have the aptitude to lead a growing business in collaboration with the Owner we’d love to hear from you.

Role Info:
Head of Operations / General Manager – Manufacturer & Direct eCommerce Motorcycle Flyscreens.
Greenwich – North Greenwich Station
£50,000 – £65,000
Plus Performance Bonus, Pension and access to motorcycles

Our Story:

Dart Flyscreens Ltd started as a personal project back in 1995. Steve, the founder of the company, had discovered the online world and developed an early e-commerce business, selling his very first Dart flyscreen to a rider in the USA. From humble beginnings Dart has grown to become the best-known global brand in its niche market.

Its success is founded on excellence in design, manufacture and customer service. All products are designed in-house and manufactured in Britain, and about 80% are exported. This success was recognised when Dart Flyscreens Ltd won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2018.

The business currently generates seven figures in revenue with huge growth potential for existing and future products.

The Head of Operations / General Manager Role:

You will have a proven track record in Operations / Business Management, be able to undertake financial planning, exercise sound judgment and decision-making with a strategic focus. You will be responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business, and will require strong leadership skills and a collaborative approach to management of staff.

All the pieces are in place at Dart Flyscreens Ltd as the go-to brand for small motorcycle wind shields. This reputation and brand awareness is perfectly placed for an ambitious individual who has the talent, experience and energy to help take the business to the next level.

Key Responsibilities include:


+ Managing both full-time and part-time resources and third party suppliers
+ Identifying areas which need personnel and recruiting accordingly
+ Managing and growing the company to achieve agreed sales and profit targets
+ Overseeing the company finances, ensuring adequate cashflow, supplier payments
+ Maintaining the brand and reputation for excellence
+ Keeping control of costs and ensuring value for money
+ Analysing current sales channels to optimise profitability
+ Helping develop new revenue streams within the brand
+ Keeping abreast of new systems and best practice in eCommerce, and implementing accordingly

It’s a small business so you’ll need to be adept at problem-solving and if necessary sourcing people who can add value.

An interest in motorcycles would be a great match. But more importantly we are looking for a candidate who is highly motivated and energised by the prospect of running a successful global e-commerce business, with a genuinely excellent, highly-regarded British product at its heart.

Does this sound like an opportunity you'd relish and make a success? If so, get in touch.

# Our Story

Frustrated by poor experiences with traditional agencies, our founders (just two regular candidates), decided that the outdated industry needed modernising and a new balance of power. In 2005, a new kind of agency model was born, putting the client and candidate at the heart of the experience whilst removing the pushy sales, schmooze and high fees.

# What makes us different?

Aside from a sensible fee model, custom technology and a direct unhindered path to candidates we…

…don’t sell candidates and we don’t sell jobs: we facilitate relationships and champion the process of ‘organic hiring’ to help create stronger and longer-lasting engagements.
