Job Description

Smart Recruitment is recruiting on behalf of a highly respected, award-winning manufacturing company based in South Somerset; they offer a generous salary, plus benefits like private healthcare, laptop, mobile, and pension : the company believes in a work hard play hard attitude and there are social events throughout the year.

As a result of continued growth, they would like to add to their management team. This role will focus on leading the production of their UK manufacturing department which comprises 3 sections, all with their own team leader. You will have 3 x TLs reporting into you, with an overall headcount of 20, including the operators. The company has 50 employees total, and as such there is an expectation that everyone is involved, and everyone can make their mark. We need a dynamic and motivated person who cares about making sure that customers are delighted, and on time delivery is maximised

As directed by the Operations Director, the role will include:

  • Overseeing production processes, and ensuring production schedule is strictly adhered to
  • Managing and organising resources including labour, in the most efficient way possible
  • Team building, and team performance monitoring

You need experience in:

  • Managing production work in a busy environment where tight deadlines and lead times are present
  • Production scheduling
  • People management skills
  • Team building experience

The position is on days, and is a nominal 40 hours per week, but we want to find candidates who will put in whatever is needed to get the job done. Not every process is in place at this company, or if it is in place it might not be 100% effective, so we want people who can be dynamic, and able to add value in terms of process improvement. Lean manufacturing experience would be highly desirable.

We look forward to receiving your application for this role that we would like to have applications for by Friday 12th January 2018 : if it is after this date, please call for further details
