Mackenzie Stuart is working with a top 10 Container Shipping provider looking for Deputy General Manager based in Nigeria. The Role: The business requires an experienced Senior/General Manager with a background in Container Shipping. Targeting leading clients within select industry verticals – and by optimising internal operations – you will utilise your high level relationships to help set the structures in place to secure sales growth and to align the business with the strategic intents outlined. This is a role that combines both significant ‘hunting’ and skilled team leadership. Any applicant will be required to provide evidence of business development skills and experience in leading teams where there has been a challenging contrast between local and expatriate staff. The position is based in a challenging environment and so any experience in areas such as this would be preferred.
The business is seeking someone with a background in Country Management and Business Development. The company requires experience of the West African market as an essential pre-requisite for the role. As the candidate will be tasked with leading the function country-wide, any experience at this level will make any candidate stand out from others of a similar background. Evidence of ‘hunting’ and achieving key contracts is a must. ‘Expat versus local relationship’ – guidance skills required. Applicants MUST speak English AND have previous experience in the Shipping industry (individuals without these pre-requisites will NOT be considered) Degree level educational qualifications will assist any worthy candidate.
Due to the large number of applications if you have not heard anything within 14 days then unfortunately you have been unsuccessful.
