Executive Recruit have another Managing Director job vacancy for a Glasgow based client – handled by our Scotland office.
Lead our client’s established industrial business into overseas markets in this exciting Managing Director role.
Our clients have designed, developed, patented and sold specialist equipment for several years, establishing themselves as one of the market leaders. Their products have appeared in several documentaries as they have been used in some of the government’s most ambitious construction projects.

Experience in penetrating overseas markets is a must, as is an acute awareness of the sensitivities surrounding different cultures, customs, legislative and environmental challenges and the need to take a localised approach, tailoring the marketing, business model and its real-world implementation to each respective local market.
You will be fully responsible for planning, P&L, effective leadership of the board of directors, regular liaison with the senior management, marketing, business development and technical teams, and financial modelling and reporting, all aligned with our client’s strategic goals.
Those with a MBA will be viewed preferentially, as will candidates who can speak one or more additional languages fluently, and/or who have a good working knowledge of engineering or geology. Individuals interested in this role must be able to prove how they have met or exceeded business targets, managed challenging situations and successfully attracted and retained new business in a large organisation.
To apply you must be legally entitled to work in the UK. Candidates currently registered with Executive Recruit or associated companies will automatically be considered.
