Interim Site Manufacturing Director - Pharmaceutical

c£80-100,000 Pro Rata Benefits

Lancashire

Are you a Site Manufacturing Director looking for your next interim contract?

Our client is a pharmaceutical batch manufacturer and needs your skills to oversee their operations until a permanent recruit is appointed.

Over the past twelve months, they have made changes to their site leadership team and invested heavily in new, industry-leading machinery. They are keen to develop their production processes to achieve the levels of output and quality standards their customers require.

As a Manufacturing Director with significant experience of working in pharmaceutical manufacturing, you'll know what that entails. The operational staff are enthusiastic but need guidance in lean/CI techniques to improve their performance. As such, you'll need to take a hands-on approach to training, mentoring, and developing those teams.

Given the nature of their products, quality is paramount. Indeed, you'll be working closely with their new Quality Director to help them hit their production targets while improving product quality and the quality culture of the company.

Our client envisages you will be degree qualified in an engineering discipline and your background will include GMP within a batch manufacturing, pharmaceutical environment. They feel their operational teams will respond well to a hands-on, visible leader who is ever-present and taking an active role in their training, mentoring, and daily problem-solving. As such, you'll probably have a collaborative style and will be comfortable engaging with all levels of the business.

Some manufacturing companies are already at an enviable level of operation. They're working to six sigma levels of quality and are focusing on squeezing small percentages out of all their operations.

 

Conversely, other businesses aren't at that level but have a dogged determination to get there. Our client is one of those businesses and needs your skills and background to help them create a refined manufacturing operation.

 

As a Manufacturing Director with significant experience of working in pharmaceutical manufacturing, you'll know what that journey entails. It's one with many challenges to overcome, but you'll be able to fall back on your previous successes to create a roadmap then implement it across the organisations.

 

The company has gone through a significant period of change with new leaders and heavy investment in state-of-the-art machinery to provide the best platform for growth. They now need a site manufacturing director to lead the new culture, develop the teams' skills and knowledge of lean manufacturing, CI, and six sigma tools and techniques.

 

Given the nature of their products, quality is paramount. Indeed, you'll be working closely with their new Quality Director to help them hit their production targets while improving product quality and the quality culture of the company.

SALES MANAGER - PRECAST CONCRETE PRODUCTS

 

"Showcase your innovative and successful strategic sales and channel to market capabilities in a high-profile role targeting residential, commercial, industrial and specification sales customer segments."

 

c£65000 (Dependent on Experience) Car Bonus Benefits

 

Location: National Field Based Role - Hybrid Working available

 

Having well-established relationships with long-standing customers is the backbone of every successful business. However, there is a danger of relying too much on those customers and not branching out.

 

As an experienced Sales Manager, you'll have seen businesses fall into that trap, so what if you could create a new niche in an established business and open their products up to a new sector?

 

That's precisely what our client intends to do, and your employment is the start point for this new venture.

 

Currently, the company sells precast concrete products such as flooring and stairs to national UK housebuilders and various aligned sectors. And they've created a very well regarded and successful business off the back of these core sector.

 

But, as someone with extensive knowledge of the precast concrete industry, you know there are many other channels to market they could attack. Possibilities include builders' merchants, regional housebuilders, architects, major contractors, care homes, social and modular housing, schools, hospitals, universities, and student accommodation.

 

This isn't a traditional sales role, as you'll need an entrepreneurial flair to identify and analyse the potential opportunities for our client. Working with the commercial team, you can carry out market and competitor analysis then work out the best routes to market. Having created your plan, your role then becomes sales-focused to land the contracts.

 

As for your background, our client envisages you will have significant experience of working in a senior sales role in the precast concrete industry. Understanding the logistics and movement of large precast concrete products will be helpful to ensure commercial success in this role. You will be both a hunter and farmer adept at both winning new business and also strategic account management.

 

As you can see, there is much more detail to discuss on this role, so please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference LX 930640 or call us on 01905 381 320.

Are you an experienced Engineering Manager looking for a multi-site operation to lead and improve? (And when we say multi-site, we do mean multi-site!)

 

Due to retirement, our client is looking for someone with your skills and experience to take over and modernise the running of a national engineering team across sixteen sites in the UK.

 

That's right-sixteen locations, all with their processes and associated challenges for you and your team to overcome.

 

As a major supplier of construction materials, our client has a well-established network of road, rail, and sea transport supply lines. At each depot and terminal, goods are loaded, unloaded, conveyed, repackaged, and distributed to their next destination.

 

As such, the associated plant must be available and operational 24/7, so you'll need to ensure a robust programme of maintenance and servicing in place at each site. In addition, although your team contains experienced mechanical and electrical engineers, as the Engineering Manager, you'll have to build skill development programmes to upskill and cross-skill personnel at each site.

 

Alongside the routine maintenance programmes, you'll take a leading role in designing, developing, and installing new infrastructure projects across the UK network.

 

Our client envisages your background will include managing the preventative and predictive maintenance activities across multiple sites, focusing on materials handling equipment. You'll also need an excellent working knowledge of bulk packaging technologies and different transportation methods via road, rail, and sea.

 

Given the nature of the role, there will be significant travel around the UK with time spent away from home. As such, location isn't a significant factor to our client as they have sites within commutable distance of most areas.
