PRODUCTION DIRECTOR
"A multi-site Production Director role for a well-established, multinational manufacturing company".


C£75-85000 Car Allowance & Benefits

Milton Keynes

 

Are you an experienced manufacturing production director?

Have you forged a successful career in a continuous process environment?

Would you like to take a key leadership role in a well-established company who are serious about growing their business?

If so, you may be the person our client is looking for to take the reins of their manufacturing operations, split across two sites in Milton Keynes and the East Midlands.

Our client operates a fast-moving, continuous process, converting operation which runs 24 hours a day, five days per week, on a three-shift system. As such, they are looking for someone with significant experience in managing that style of manufacturing operation. You'll be based at their main site in Milton Keynes but will need to spend some time at their sister site in the East Midlands as well.

The business is undergoing a degree of change which can be scary for many employees. So, understanding change management and helping your teams adjust to new working practices will play a significant part in your role. As well as implementing new changes to the operations, you will also need to focus on cost reduction programmes to ensure the company's financial targets are met.

Part of that change programme has been lean manufacturing. Having implemented a lean programme across the business, a core part of your role will be to lead their improvement projects using tools like CI and Six Sigma, plus others you have experience using. As such, you'll be someone who understands manufacturing processes and production efficiencies and how to improve them. Even though they are already operating at a high level, they know that there are always gains to be made. And that's where your people management skills come into play by inspiring your teams to achieve higher performance levels.

Like all continuous process operations, they have a huge focus on preventative maintenance which will form another core responsibility of your role, ensuring machine availability and utilisation remain high. Plus, you will play a key role in our client's new product development process by providing engineering capability and feasibility studies on potential new lines. In addition, you will need to investigate and plan for plant investment to support the future growth of the operations.

The business operates a relatively flat management structure, and you will sit on the senior leadership team of both manufacturing sites. As such, you will be able to influence the business's overall strategy, working closely with your fellow directors and the works council to create the best roadmap for the future. In addition, your ability to build close links with the commercial team will be essential to maintaining customer service standards without increasing stock levels.

As for your background, our client envisages you will be degree qualified in an engineering discipline and have significant experience in running a continuous process production system. And your specific knowledge of pneumatics, hydraulics and electrical systems will be of great benefit. As a visionary leader, you will be a visible, hands-on manager who is confident in managing engineering and operational teams of at least 100 including production, planning, quality, health and safety, purchasing and warehousing. You'll be comfortable in empowering your teams and providing mentoring and coaching to develop their skillsets. In addition, you'll enjoy building excellent working relationships with the supervisor teams and works council.

Also, with this role sitting in the leadership team, our client feels you will need a working knowledge of company finances and an analytical approach to managing costs in the business.

As you can imagine, we have plenty more to discuss about this role, so please submit your details, quoting reference LX 1046380 or call us on 44 (0)1905 381 320.

£30-40000 (Dependent on Experience/Negotiable) + 20% Bonus + Car Allowance & Benefits

 

Hybrid  National Field/Home Based Role - HO in Thames Valley/Oxfordshire

 

Having carved a successful career in sales, you'll have learned that there's nothing more depressing than trying to sell a low-quality, cheap, mass-produced product. You end up clutching at straws trying to sell obvious features like, "Our tables have four legs and a wipe-clean surface". Not easy, is it?

 

So, imagine selling a premium product range where every aspect of the user's experience is carefully considered and built into the design. Speciality homeware that immediately sells itself on its striking visual appeal and functionality.

 

Sound like a better prospect?

 

Having already established their brand in high-end retailers like John Lewis, our client is now focusing on building relationships with other quality retail outlets. And that's where you'll come in with your existing knowledge of selling into companies like QVC, Robert Dyas, Argos, Dunelm, Very, Next, or Homebase, to name but a few.

 

However, as well as creating business with new customers, there are many opportunities to increase sales with existing customers who aren't aware of our client's complete product range.

 

As for you, our client is relaxed about your qualifications. But excellent written and verbal communications skills will be essential to your success in this role. In addition, you must have previous experience managing key accounts with major retailers. Location isn't too important as this is primarily a field-based role, but you will need to be able to attend the company HQ in Oxfordshire.

 

To indicate your interest in this role, please submit your details, quoting reference LX 1045846 or call us on 44 (0)1905 381 320.
