General Manager (AE581712)

Salary: Up to €100,000

Do you have a scientific or technical background, and experience in maximising business?

Are you a strategic thinker with the vision to generate long-term success?

A highly successful ingredients manufacturer is seeking an innovative General Manager to join their team in central Portugal. Working alongside the CEO, the General Manager will optimise business operations across three European factories, identifying improvements and opportunities for growth.

You will structure and establish new Marketing and R&D departments to deliver company goals, while implementing your own initiatives.

To succeed in this role, you need a strong technical or scientific background, ideally in cosmetic ingredients, chemicals, or pharmaceuticals, and significant international experience. You are eager to apply your technical knowledge in new ways to help drive expansion.

Senior management experience is preferred, but not essential if you have the right leadership skills and strategic vision. You must be fluent in English; Portuguese is not required.

This is an exciting chance to join a successful company and make a real impact. The central Portugal location offers an excellent quality of life, and an ex-Pat package or relocation support is available.

If you have the scientific background, international perspective and innovative vision we are looking for, apply today!


To apply for this role, please email your CV to quoting job ref AE581712.
