Manufacturing businesses naturally require skilled and experienced staff members, of all relevant disciplines, in order to not just function but also flourish. This of course also applies to the organisation’s leadership structure. An experienced manufacturing Director will oversee the manufacturing operation and make sure that deadlines are met, standards are maintained and budgets are not exceeded.

The right Director can make a huge difference to the operation of a business, helping to drive it forward and reach new heights. Responsible for the selection and training of new hires, including appointing new supervisors and production managers, directors are expected to perform routine employee evaluations.

Businesses rely on the leadership skills of their directors to keep everything running smoothly and also to provide accurate and timely reports. When choosing their directors, businesses will very often outsource rather than promote from within - this is especially true in larger organisations or where the position needs to be filled sooner rather than later.

Manufacturing recruitment specialists such as H-Seventeen are perfectly placed to find manufacturing organisations the experienced Directors they are looking for. How are we different? Quite simply it is because we ourselves have strong backgrounds in the manufacturing industry, and this is how we are able to help businesses and directors find each other with an expertise and professionalism that other recruitment companies are just not capable of.

Generic, broadscope recruitment companies are not always the best option. By specialising in one area, manufacturing, we can focus totally on your needs and deliver exactly what you are looking for.

Of course, when you are looking for new staff you are naturally going to want to make sure that you are hiring the best people for the job. H-Seventeen can help you with that by gathering the talent in one place, saving you the time and effort of advertising on multiple platforms. 

This approach applies whether you are a director looking for your next challenge, or a manufacturing organisation looking for a skilled director to help push your company forward.

Directors looking to either switch companies, for whatever reason, or kick start their careers again will be able to find their ideal position right here at H-Seventeen. Because we are a specialist recruitment company, working exclusively within the manufacturing industry, there is no need for you to trawl various recruitment sites, scrolling through endless pages looking for the right position. This scattergun approach is not always appropriate, sometimes the correct approach is the more focused one.

We have already narrowed the field for you, whether you are searching for staff or a position, meaning that you are only ever searching within the industry that is relevant to you - manufacturing. This streamlined process saves everybody time, frustration and in the case of organisations, money.
