Glendale Horticulture is an autonomous business unit within the £65 million turnover Glendale Group. The business grows and supplies a wide range of high quality ornamental plants to the amenity and retail sectors and covers a number of different sites within the UK with the head office based in Gloucestershire. The business has recently undergone a re-shaping exercise to make the business ready for the future and as a consequence we have been asked to recruit an outstanding and commercially focussed leader to join the company as Managing Director Glendale Horticulture.

The right person…
You are very smart and astute and of graduate calibre.
You are able to demonstrate a successful track record leading a commercial business.
Good horticulture knowledge would be great but first and foremost we are looking for a commercially savvy leader with outstanding communication skills.
You have excellent attention to detail and very good financial and general business awareness.
You are focussed on profitable growth but also a great people motivator and man manager.
You are entrepreneurial and dynamic with a clear desire to grow your career within a progressive organisation.
Experience dealing with a diverse portfolio of clients is essential and experience within either horticulture or a similar sector would be ideal.

The business is keen to grow and develop and as the new Managing Director you will be tasked with driving this growth through the management of the team. The position will lead a developed and agile team.

The role is based in the West Midlands but with regular travel to the various other UK sites and provides a fabulous opportunity for you to grow your career.
