Are you an experienced Manufacturing Manager looking for a new challenge to test your leadership skills?


Maybe you'd like to use your knowledge of change management and lean implementation to make a real difference to a company?


Our client is looking for someone with those skills to lead their manufacturing operation and play a crucial part in evolving their business.


They're a well-established company manufacturing large GRP fabrications globally for use in industrial and commercial settings. Bucking the trend, they thrived during the Covid pandemic and have an extensive R & D and investment programme underway.


So, they have significant plans to evolve the company and are currently in a transitional phase.


This is where you come in.


The company's growth plans rely on having the necessary labour resources on-site, so they have gained visa sponsorship status, allowing them to bring in skilled labour from other countries.


Therefore, you'll need the gravitas of a strong leader and be able to demonstrate your previous experience in managing a diverse, multicultural workforce. In addition, you will need to develop, coach, and mentor shop floor leaders to help you manage the growing team.


You'll be able to use your past experience of lean implementation to its fullest by leading lean improvement projects and applying best practices throughout the manufacturing operations. Your knowledge and skills in collecting and analysing data will be vital to your success in this role. And, to help with that data acquisition, our client is currently implementing a new ERP system which you will lead into the manufacturing part of the business. Six Sigma Green Belt would be highly advantageous but our client will support accreditation if you have the experience.


This role is entirely site-based. So ideal commuting locations include Bristol, Somerset, West Wiltshire. However, our client will consider relocation assistance for the perfect candidate who wants to move to this beautiful part of the UK.


If you feel this is the next role for you, please submit your CV, quoting reference 1044279 or call us on 44 (0)1905 381 320.
