Commercial Manager
£40-50k

Willington, Derby
An unusual and exciting opportunity at the stunning Mercia Marina in Willington, Derby. This is a job with a difference and one where your contribution matters.

About you

We’re seeking someone with that rare combination of a sound commercial mindset complemented by a technical/engineering aptitude.
You will be a creative thinker who likes to investigate and apply imaginative solutions rather than taking the easy route. Someone as comfortable with capex management as they are managing diverse projects and people. Or at least confident and resourceful enough to take on the challenge and determined enough to succeed.

In return, we offer an exciting well-paid career in a role where your ideas are sought out and your actions make a difference to residents, businesses, visitors and holiday makers as well as the local community.
Over the past 12 years, we've laid the groundwork for a fabulous business. We still have big plans for the future and you will be central to those plans.
You’ll be working in one of the best environments in the Midlands (you can help make it one of the best in the country as that is our aim). You’ll join a small team where everyone counts, and everyone contributes.

About us

We're a fast-growing, well-established, financially secure family company with grand designs. Over the past 12 years we've created a destination with topflight commercial offices occupied by demanding international businesses, 260 floating residences, luxury holiday homes, 15 retail shops, cafes, and restaurants. There is scope for more of everything, but better and brighter. 

If you’re used to a slow-paced unchallenging environment where one day is much the same as the last, then this probably isn’t going to be the right role for you. Decision making here is rapid and straightforward as we are a small team with a flat structure.

What will you be doing?

Starting projects, pushing projects along, trying to wrap up projects, investigating improvements be it better office systems, management info, upgraded fibre internet, best use of land, new lodges, new vehicles, resource allocation and more. The tasks will run the gamut from the everyday to the once in a lifetime. The easy way is not our usual way.

You’ll be on the front line for new buildings, new infrastructure, additional land, more residences, more lodges including eco-lodges, IT innovation, equipment upgrades, e-vehicle charging schemes, e-bike schemes, etc.  And then there are your ideas…

Examples of current projects are: Promenade building development scheme; fibre optic internet installation for whole marina; financially viable e-vehicle charging for residents and visitors; bee-hives; lodge development; eco-lodges; realistic and viable energy saving possibilities and new software.

You’ll liaise with architects, planning consultants and planners on development schemes as required. You'll assess possible development projects for financial return, customer demand, likely take-up and feasibility. You'll undertake detailed appraisals of major schemes.

Constantly looking for opportunities to develop the business which will provide benefit for customers and the general public and as a consequence provide profitable growth.

Help determine the optimum technical/engineering solutions.

Develop an overview of existing products, operations and processes and put forward suggestions for improvement.

 

What experience and qualifications do you need?

Ideally an engineering or technical degree from a good university plus good commercial experience in a decision-making capacity or a good business degree with work experience in an engineering or technical capacity.

Able to undertake detailed financial appraisal of major projects

Creatively minded

Be an admirer of innovative solutions

A track record of achievement

Be keen to take on big developments

Have an international or at least national perspective
Previous applicants are welcome to reapply.
Deadline for applications is 31 March 2021. 

That’s all for now

If you’ve got this far, like what we have to offer and think we will appreciate what you have to offer, take the next step by making a confidential application by emailing your C.V. accompanied by a cover letter to robert@merciamarina.co.uk.

We recruit without regard to age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation. And we mean it.

Commercial Manager

£40-50k

Willington, Derby

An unusual and exciting opportunity at the stunning Mercia Marina in Willington, Derby. This is a job with a difference and one where your contribution matters.

About you

We’re seeking someone with that rare combination of a sound commercial mindset complemented by a technical/engineering aptitude.

You will be a creative thinker who likes to investigate and apply imaginative solutions rather than taking the easy route. Someone as comfortable with capex management as they are managing diverse projects and people. Or at least confident and resourceful enough to take on the challenge and determined enough to succeed.

In return, we offer an exciting well-paid career in a role where your ideas are sought out and your actions make a difference to residents, businesses, visitors and holiday makers as well as the local community.

Over the past 12 years, we've laid the groundwork for a fabulous business. We still have big plans for the future and you will be central to those plans.

You’ll be working in one of the best environments in the Midlands (you can help make it one of the best in the country as that is our aim). You’ll join a small team where everyone counts, and everyone contributes.

About us

We're a fast-growing, well-established, financially secure family company with grand designs. Over the past 12 years we've created a destination with topflight commercial offices occupied by demanding international businesses, 260 floating residences, luxury holiday homes, 15 retail shops, cafes, and restaurants. There is scope for more of everything, but better and brighter. 

If you’re used to a slow-paced unchallenging environment where one day is much the same as the last, then this probably isn’t going to be the right role for you. Decision making here is rapid and straightforward as we are a small team with a flat structure.

What will you be doing?

Starting projects, pushing projects along, trying to wrap up projects, investigating improvements be it better office systems, management info, upgraded fibre internet, best use of land, new lodges, new vehicles, resource allocation and more. The tasks will run the gamut from the everyday to the once in a lifetime. The easy way is not our usual way.

You’ll be on the front line for new buildings, new infrastructure, additional land, more residences, more lodges including eco-lodges, IT innovation, equipment upgrades, e-vehicle charging schemes, e-bike schemes, etc.  And then there are your ideas…

Examples of current projects are: Promenade building development scheme; fibre optic internet installation for whole marina; financially viable e-vehicle charging for residents and visitors; bee-hives; lodge development; eco-lodges; realistic and viable energy saving possibilities and new software.

You’ll liaise with architects, planning consultants and planners on development schemes as required. You'll assess possible development projects for financial return, customer demand, likely take-up and feasibility. You'll undertake detailed appraisals of major schemes.

Constantly looking for opportunities to develop the business which will provide benefit for customers and the general public and as a consequence provide profitable growth.

Help determine the optimum technical/engineering solutions.

Develop an overview of existing products, operations and processes and put forward suggestions for improvement.

 

What experience and qualifications do you need?

Ideally an engineering or technical degree from a good university plus good commercial experience in a decision-making capacity or a good business degree with work experience in an engineering or technical capacity.

Able to undertake detailed financial appraisal of major projects

Creatively minded

Be an admirer of innovative solutions

A track record of achievement

Be keen to take on big developments

Have an international or at least national perspective

Previous applicants are welcome to reapply.

Deadline for applications is 31 March 2021. 

That’s all for now

If you’ve got this far, like what we have to offer and think we will appreciate what you have to offer, take the next step by making a confidential application by emailing your C.V. accompanied by a cover letter to robert@merciamarina.co.uk.
