The role represents a growth in the business and is very much aimed at continuing the growth of the product lines. An ability to think creatively, on your feet and be part of a small but supportive team is essential. You will also be relied upon to show your own initiative in the absence of management and will be actively encouraged to offer your own ideas and thoughts, to assist in the daily running and efficiency of all operations.
