Job description, responsibilities and duties

For our client - an international investment company that focuses on small and medium-sized companies primarily in the DACH region, we are looking for an experienced Operations Manager with professional experience from Big4 - Deloitte, EY, KPMG and PwC, leading management consultancies.

Immediately after a new company acquisition, you will take on various projects to drive a sustainable value growth of the company. You will become responsible for a long-term development of our investments, while closely collaborating with local management team and the Operating Partner. This requires you to develop value enhancement concepts as well as short- and medium-term strategies to tackle various business challenges and to lead operational implementation afterwards. You will work across all relevant areas within the investments and will actively report to company management on value enhancement opportunities.

The challenges are diverse and typical to our investment approach as company invests in the following situations:

- Carve-out of companies or business units considered non-core business
- Changes in shareholder structure and / or succession solutions
- Need for external expertise to actively manage situations of change
- Support for a management team looking to acquire a company (management buyouts and management buy-ins)
- Insolvency cases, especially with a strategic fit to the existing portfolio

Despite different starting situations, the goal of the team is to increase value of the investments by positioning them profitably and sustainably in the market and as an independent medium-sized company.
