We are working with the go-to experts for industry leading lighting, audio, video, and scenic solutions across the UK & Europe.
As the General Manager, you’ll take centre stage, supporting a senior leadership team in the daily operations of the business. You will work with heads of department (HR, Finance, L&D, Facilities) to make sure the business runs smoothly. You’re the buffer between the MD (who you report in to) and the rest of the business – so it’s an incredibly important role.
You’ll be trusted and empowered to execute strategy and make business decisions on a daily basis. This role would not suit someone who needed to constantly seek reassurances on their decisions – we want a decisive, commercially astute manager.
Realistically you’re going to have to come from an AV/Events background, so you understand the subject matter when in your HOD meetings. You will definitely need experience managing people and particularly exposure to managing finance and HR functions, so budgeting, assessing monthly management accounts, approving payroll and dealing with disciplinary issues (not that there is many).
Basically, you’re the person that people go to, look to and depend upon for guidance on decision making and the smooth running of the business. They have built an incredibly strong culture here and you pay a pivotal role in maintaining that.
The office is based In North London (just inside the M25) and you will need to spend the majority of your time with your team, on the ground. This role probably won’t suit someone who wants to spend 2 or 3 days a week working from a home office – it’s a very hands on role.
From a salary perspective you’re looking at between £45,000 and £50,000, with an annual bonus based on business performance. There’s also a long list of corporate benefits (as mentioned they have built a great culture and love to look after their team).
If you are interested or want to know more (including seeing the full client job brief), send me a message, DM, call me – whatever is easiest. Having an up-to-date CV to hand is ideal, but if you haven’t got one immediately, we can still chat through the position, and you can learn more.
Every applicant will receive a response. We sometimes make mistakes and miss things from CVs, so you will be given an opportunity to receive feedback and discuss the role in more detail if you feel necessary. We encourage anyone who feels they are suitable to apply, we love seeing diversity in our applicants. We use specialist technology to ensure there is no gender bias in our adverts.
