As an Operations Manager with a strong lean/CI skillset, would you relish the opportunity to transform a multi-site manufacturing business?


And we don't mean by tweaking a few things or doing a bit of 5S here and there. We're talking about the widescale implementation of modern manufacturing techniques across five businesses.


It's a job you can really get your teeth into and make huge improvements to this historic organisation, who have an excellent reputation in the construction industry and a highly rated product.


They've seen massive success during their life but know they can improve by replacing ingrained practices and behaviours with the latest techniques in lean manufacturing.


But it won't be easy as they've never embarked on a transformation project of this scale before. So, you'll need to draw on your previous successes to overcome resistance to change by teaching, mentoring, and coaching the individual factory managers and teams on each site.


As you can imagine, you must have a proven track record in delivering business transformation in a manufacturing environment. Ideally, construction materials, but it's not essential. Of more importance are your key strengths of tenacity, patience, and communication skills, as you'll be working with people at all levels of the organisation.


Our client is keen to see you demonstrate your knowledge of formal methodologies such as Kaizen, Value Stream Mapping, Six Sigma, Root Cause Analysis, 5S, Standard Work and Visual Management.


In addition to the transformation project, you should also have one eye on succession planning. The company are keen to invest in and train potential high-flyers within the workforce who can be the managers and leaders of tomorrow.


Ultimately, this role could progress to director level, giving you a personal goal to achieve as well. So please indicate your interest by emailing your CV, quoting reference LX 12088631
