Working in a small office, this is a very dynamic role for an individual that can self manage - working very closely with the very hands on Directors to ensure product is ordered, received & presented to production when required. The role will overlap many disciplines from supplier interface to customer support to production planning. The office is a very busy environment & often hectic, where managing time tasks is crucial.
You will be expected to look after the office on occasions when the Directors are off site, interface with customers is likely so a very good & clear command of the English language is necessary at a professional level.
