Operations Manager

Want to challenge yourself at an expanding company and make a difference in the industry

About Us

Formerly Ralphs Tasmanian Seafood, RTS Pauaco is a $50 million business with factories in Electrona, Tasmania and Christchurch, New Zealand. We are the largest exporter of live abalone from Australia to China and are the first to develop a processing system for urchins in Tasmania, which are sold into numerous Asian markets. There are also several projects in train for new product development, and with your help, we are hoping to roll them out in the next 12 months.

The Role

As the Operations Manager, you will take the reigns over our Australian operations to achieve efficient and smooth day-to-day functions while improving our quality and environmental impact. You will help us evolve processes and systems to increase our capacity and inspire a proactive culture.

Your responsibility will include maintaining the satisfaction of our partners in the abalone fishery - divers and quota holders, ensuring the effective utilisation of factory and maintenance resources, and reporting on weekly sales and forecasts against budget.

The abalone fishery operates all year round and because catching fish is dictated by weather patterns, there is often weekend communications and processing required. We are looking for someone who loves to plan, organise and has amazing people skills to engage with the key stakeholders on a regular basis, as well as an ability to adapt where required under often changing and challenging circumstances.

This is an excellent position for someone wanting to progress their management career in a multi-faceted industry. Experience in the seafood industry will be well regarded but is not essential.

A competitive salary will be offered commensurate with experience.

To be successful in this role, you need to have:

  • Strategic ability to either understand the commercial reality of the fisheries industry or the desire and capability to learn quickly;
  • Demonstrated relationship management experience;
  • Staff management experience;
  • A collaborative and professional leadership style;
  • Knowledge of contemporary workplace practices;
  • Demonstrated ability to collect and utilise data in decision making;
  • A high level of competence in new technology and MS Office skills in particularly Excel;
  • A problem-solving mindset;
  • An ability to promote change; and
  • High level written and verbal communication skills.

Applications close  5:00 pm on 18 Nov 2019.
