Have you thought about transferring your Automotive or Manufacturing Commercial skills to the Rail industry – Excellent new senior commercial opportunity

leave a comment »


We are delighted to present a great career opportunity at the number one provider of rail solutions in the world. They design, build and service the most complex rail solutions with a full product portfolio of locomotives, bogies, propulsion and control solutions.

Due to the ongoing opportunities within the Rail industry, and internal changes they now need a commercially astute, financially oriented Commercial Manager to join their Repair and Overhaul Division to manage the customer interface and ensure profitability at high level.

They are actively recruiting for a candidate from outside the Rail industry, in order to bring diversity and a broad range of commercial acumen within the team. The ideal candidate will have a commercial or sales / business management background, currently supporting a manufacturing environment. This will include distribution, aerospace, automotive or industrial applications. Candidates from within the Automotive, Aerospace or general Manufacturing industries are likely to have the right mix of technical and commercial exposure.

You will have a high degree of commercial and financial ability, exceptional communication and negotiation skills and the ability to see the bigger picture. Managing high value contracts from cradle to grave is a key element of the role, and experience in this area is highly desirable. Entrepreneurial tendencies will be encouraged, and the ability to think outside the box and bring a fresh approach to commercial processes will be a real plus factor.

Your main focus will be managing the customer interface, maximising on current opportunities within existing contracts whilst also actively creating new business opportunities. Bid support and management of P&L, whilst maintaining customer priorities and maintaining exceptional levels of service to maximise profitability is also part of the brief, as are managing issues such as cash flow, scheduling, prioritisation and risk mitigation.

For more information, please send your CV to Cathy at recruitment@cathyrich.co.uk, or call 0845 269 9085 to discuss how your skill set might  allow you to enter a dynamic and secure new environment.
