Kames Fish Farming Limited (KFF) was established in 1972 and is a very diverse family owned business, primarily operating in the production of large sea grown trout, producing 700-800 tonnes per year. KFF operates its business with a strong focus on quality – in texture, taste and colour – and is a consistent supplier of the very finest, high quality trout. The business supplies to multi-national supermarkets including Waitrose and Asda as well as to smaller independent smokers and restaurants and is focussed on 101% customer service.
KFF is looking to grow through increasing volume in response to existing and new customer demands in the UK, USA and its international customer base.
We are looking to appoint an Operations/Production Manager to support in the following areas:
- Leadership – leading, motivating and managing all staff to achieve key performance indicators
- Operations – production, planning, scheduling and contingency planning
- Customer service – managing key customer accounts
It is envisaged that this person will join as Operations/Production Manager with a clear opportunity for career progression in the business.
We are looking for a hands-on Operations professional who can bring strong leadership skills and who can fit into the business which has a huge growth opportunity and the benefit of diversity of operations across its various divisions.
This is a key appointment for the business at a time of significant change and reorganisation and as the business sets a platform for growth, the Operations/Production Manager will play a key part, along with the senior management team and the Board, in the implementation of a focussed company strategy going forward.
We are looking for somebody who can bulid and lead an effective and motivated team, all pulling together in the same direction with a strong customer focussed approach. A background in aquaculture, food manufacturing, agriculture, whisky or related industries would be beneficial.
