Greenwich – North Greenwich Station
£50,000 – £65,000

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.
