Halen Mon

General Manager | B-Corp | Anglesey Sea Salt

Internationally renowned sea salt company seeks General Manager to oversee the foundations of the business


Proudly based in Anglesey, Halen Môn is a family run and award-winning B-Corp business with a global reputation for producing the highest quality Sea Salt, condiments and food products.   

The company was founded in 1997 by Alison & David Lea-Wilson MBE and is still owned and run by them and their children Hamish, Jake & Jess, all of whom are involved in the business to varying degrees.

In 2021, to facilitate David’s retirement, they started a transition from being family-run, to family-managed, with the formation of a family Board of Directors and the appointment of a General Manager.  

The Board is responsible for long-term planning, governance and for setting and monitoring targets and performance. The MD sits on the board and is the leader of the company.

The Managing Director leads on all external facing aspects of the business from brand and product development, to customer relations and sales and marketing.

Halen Môn has been fortunate to have had an excellent General Manager to see us through the transition process, and she has also put in place improved systems to help run the business profitably and sustainably day to day, not least helping Halen Môn to achieve B-Corp certification.

As the current GM has decided to pursue other interests, the Board is looking for an exceptional administrator, team-leader and financial manager to help the Managing Director to run the day to day operations of the company, and to help facilitate Halen Môn’s continued and stable growth.

Working directly with the MD, The General Manager is responsible for the foundations: the administration, the management and the development of the team and the internal functions of the company. 

They will be responsible for overseeing and managing the way the team and the business operates, the preservation of vital accreditations and certifications, the function and maintenance of visitor attractions, catering and the on-site retail operation. 

The main focus of the General Manager’s role will be the financial and administrative management of Halen Môn. Working closely with the Directors and our Professional advisors, the General Manager will be responsible for all budgeting, forecasting, payroll, banking and management accounts. 

The General Manager will not only be responsible for the day to day running of a busy food factory, visitor attraction and shop, but also for helping to execute and implement the company’s operational development and growth. 

The General Manager will be responsible for reviewing and (where appropriate), improving internal systems including: IT, telecoms, building and grounds maintenance, health and safety and compliance. The General Manager will also be responsible for maintaining B-Corp accreditation, and other similar certification in the future.

HR, recruitment, team leadership, employee well-being, training and development are also key parts of the role. The General Manager will be responsible for rotas, team and management meetings, and staff appraisals and reviews.
