A rare and rather exciting opportunity for a high-calibre hands-on candidate to manage the day to day operations of this British Producer and eCommerce Retailer of Motorcycle Flyscreens.

eCommerce Manager / GM – Operations & Growth
Greenwich – North Greenwich Station
£50,000 – £60,000

Dart Flyscreens Ltd started as a personal project back in 1995. Steve, who founded the company, was a design student working on his final year project – an internet-ready computer. Through this, he was already familiar with the early online world and accidentally discovered e-commerce when he sold the very first Dart flyscreen to a rider in the USA with whom he’d been emailing. From those beginnings Dart has grown to be the best-known global brand in its niche market.
Its success is founded on excellence in design, manufacture and customer service. All products are designed in-house and manufactured in Britain, and about 80% are exported. This success was recognised when Dart Flyscreens Ltd won the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in International Trade in 2018.
The business currently generates over seven figures in eCommerce revenue with huge growth potential for existing and future products.
The Operations / General Manager Role:
As an eCommerce Business Manager you will need to be fully conversant in all the moving parts that contribute to the success of a global-reaching eCommerce business – from digital marketing, analytics and conversion optimisation through to inventory, order fulfilment and customer success.
All the pieces are in place at Dart Flyscreens Ltd and we are the go-to brand for small motorcycle wind shields. This reputation and brand awareness is perfectly placed for an ambitious individual who has the talent and energy to help take the business to the next level.
Key Responsibilities include:
+ Managing both full-time and part-time resources and third party suppliers
+ Identify areas which need personnel and recruit accordingly
+ Managing and growing the company to achieve agreed sales and profit targets
+ Overseeing the company finances, ensuring adequate cashflow, supplier payments
+ Maintaining the brand and reputation for excellence
+ Keeping control of costs and ensure value for money
+ Analysing current sales channels and ensure profitability
+ Helping develop new revenue streams within the brand
+ Keeping abreast of new systems and best practice in eCommerce, and implement accordingly
It’s a small business so you’ll need to be adept at problem-solving and if necessary sourcing people who can add value.
An interest in motorcycles would be a great match. But more importantly we are looking for a candidate who is highly motivated and energised by the prospect of running a successful global e-commerce business, with a genuinely excellent, highly-regarded British product at its heart.
