Operation managers are essential to companies offering a product or service and are involved in all aspects of a business's operations. They manage the quality control and production of goods in an organisation, going out of their way to increase the production efficiencies of a company.

The responsibilities of an operation manager job will depend on your business. Typically their role involves overlooking internal training schemes for employees, quality assurance programmes hiring new talent, and monitoring and analysing processes to create effective strategies to help businesses reach their potential.

What is an Operation Manager?

An operation manager can be a pivotal addition to a business in any industry. They will support strategic planning and the general organisational necessities that help a company's day-to-day operations run smoothly. Again, depending on your organisation, operation managers can oversee various departments, from HR to accounts. Their skill set is vast, and their contributions empower progression.

An operation manager's responsibilities include: 

  • Enhancing internal operational processes, policies and systems
  • Supporting the management of a business, from planning and reporting to problem-solving 
  • Being a financial aid through monitoring budgets
  • Improving the operations of internal departments, from HR, IT and Finance
  • Driving and initiating organisational change to contribute to the long-term success of your business

Hiring an operation manager is a step forward for any organisation in need of enhancing its internal structure. 

When do I need to hire an Operation Manager?

You may have key people in your business, be it team leaders or CEOs, who are spending too much time on tasks that take away from what they should be focussing on. From business administration duties to managing employee welfare and HR functions, an operations manager can take these weights off your shoulders.    

Suppose your business has grown to the point where you have 15-20 employees. In that case, now would be a good time to invest in an operation manager. They can take on a management position in your business and take care of the day-to-day aspects of your organisation, ultimately keeping your company moving in the right direction.

Overall, an operation manager is an ideal hire if you want to streamline the daily processes and procedures of your business.

What skills does a Operations Manager need?

As operations managers liaise and interact with essentially everyone within your organisation, they must have strong communication skills. Adding to this, they should be able to harness communication techniques to motivate, delegate and engage with all internal employees. These communication skills will also lend themselves to the relationship-building they will support with your new and existing clients and customers. 

Another key skill they should possess is exceptional organisational skills. From organising internal and external meetings, events, processes and procedures, organisational skills are a core attribute that any graduate or experienced operations manager should have within their skill set. 

Finally, they should have the analytical skills to bring solutions to fruition and have the ability to problem-solve when challenges within your business occur. They are also great decision-makers and know how to bring out the best in your team.
With a niche skill set, operation manager roles can help transform your business.
