Service Manager


Union Industries, the market leader in hi-speed industrial doors, have a rare and exciting opportunity to join their high performing, employee owned team.

Our flagship service division has experienced significant year on year growth and we’re looking for a Senior Manager, with board potential, to join the existing team.

Union Industries offer an unparallelled level of customer service in their market. Organic growth has seen the division grow by an average of 15% pa over the last 10 years. We have established a southern service base to complement our head office in Leeds. People, process and equipment have all increased significantly over the last decade and we’re now in a position where we need the service division to be a standalone department.

Service, to Union, is not merely managing field personnel – we have a real ethos of delivering the very best customer care available in the quickest possible timeframe to satisfy our customer’s requirements.

Our Service Engineers need to be on site as and when required, be fully competent and in possession of all the likely components required to keep our customer’s High Speed Doors in a perfect operational order. Our aim is to fix a problem in just one visit.

We have an excellent team in place and the resource to fund future development, we need that special person to head up the department with the emotional intelligence to integrate into a successful team and, building on what has already been accomplished, lead the department to new heights. To be clear, the department is not broken or underperforming, we’re facilitating future growth.

Ultimately, the Service department will have board representation and we’re looking for an exceptional person with the skills, drive and dedication to get there.

What are Union people like? Our employee owners are an exceptional bunch of people, our ability to overcome obstacles and operate systems that deliver exceptional customer service is based on the calibre of the people in the team. Our new Service Manager will be of the same ilk. To be blunt, we expect all our people to do whatever it takes to support our customers and keep the company's promises.

If you think you have what it takes to be a part of the Union family, get in touch. We provide the necessary training, but attitude is something you bring with you.
