  • Reporting to Operations Manager any potential problems that may result in delays to production

The position is 15.00 - 00.00 Monday to Friday, but because this is a role where you are making products to order, some flexibility with hours worked may be required, but only to make sure the job is done and their customers continue to be delighted.

You’ll need to bring demonstrable experience of managing teams, developing processes, and the ability to convert numbers into meaningful analysis for the purposes of continuous improvement. You’ll need to be eager, high energy and confident to be able to succeed in the role.
