Are you a people focused Manufacturing Manager? Have the roles you've worked in before, been a success because you have performed through the team that works for you? Are you lean process trained? Finally have you worked in a continuous or batch manufacturing environment….. then I suggest you read on as this may be interesting for you!
Your role as Manufacturing Manager of this award winning global player within their sector will be to run their Kent based factory through developing, guiding and engaging with 6 shift managers. You will set their KPI's, make improvements and using your core management and developmental skills to get those Managers running their teams in a more efficient and motivational manner. It's not just about manufacturing for this Production Director you report into, it's about behaviors and he said he wants cultural change. Hence wanting a manager who is a real people person. Someone who will set milestones and then reward the Team, with simple incentives that enable the team to feel appreciated and energised. Does this sound like your management style?
Having increased the size of their production line in the north last year they are looking to increase their Kent based plant in the same way which will increase output by approx 30%. Lean processing is desired, to plan the correct production against the orders taken and being forecast. With a large budget to be responsible for, together with procurement (who take the lead on negotiating prices) you will deal with the suppliers directly to ensure you have the correct levels of raw materials and stock. Knowledge of SAP and Access for data would be advantageous.
In short we need a Manufacturing Manager who wants to reach for the stars! Someone who will take a balanced view to ensure positive outcomes from the company, the team and themselves!
