An Operations Manager is responsible for the daily operations of a facility. The success of an Operations Manager lies in ensuring maximum efficiency of personnel, machinery, and equipment utilization.
In an industrial establishment, the tasks of an Operations Manager may include preparing schedules coordinating manufacturing activities, implementing processes to ensure smooth production, and ensuring products meet specifications. As part of a logistics company, an Operations Manager may be responsible for managing inventories, scheduling deliveries, and routing trucks. The key responsibility, however, is the smooth and cost effective functioning of shipping and material handling.
Apart from great responsibility, what makes the role of an Operations Manager challenging is the real-time decision making and ensuring uninterrupted productivity and customer satisfaction. An aptitude for troubleshooting and a deep knowledge of the production process bodes well for someone aspiring for this role. Computer skills are highly desirable as well, since Operations Managers typically work with advanced software to aid management and ensure compliance.
An Operations Manager should be keen to improve safety conditions, ensure quality, and lower fixed and variable costs. If you have what it takes to be an Operations Manager, simply upload your resume on our website and we will take you through our pre-screening process.
