You may think you're a big hitter in transportation and logistics but are you ready to up your game?

Can you build on your success in your current territory and take it to an emerging market? Would you like to impart your knowledge of best practice and develop a large, complex third-party contract logistics operation in a different country?

What if there was an opportunity to head up a 3PL operation in South East Asia? And be relocated as well?

Enough of the questions. As an experienced VP/Senior Director of Transportation with an outstanding career in 3PL and in-house, you may be the person they need.

Ideally, you'll be degree qualified in a relevant discipline, and your background will be from retail, grocery, or FMCG. Importantly, you'll be able to demonstrate the effective management of complex 3PL or in-house operations of at least 1000 vehicles across multiple sites.

Suppose you've worked in Europe, the US, or the APAC region. In that case, you'll be used to operating across multiple areas with different borders and infrastructures, and that's important as our client needs someone who can quickly adapt to different cultures and procedures.

If you've previously headed up a 3PL operation and then moved to an in-house role with a large, multi-national operation, that could work as well. The nature of the cluster means a broad scope of supply, covering retail, fmcg, eCommerce, pharma, technology network, from the major cities and conurbations all the way through to the tourist hubs around the region. As such, the operations are complex, and there are significant strategic and operational challenges in coordinating all these varied activities.

MECHANICAL ENGINEER - PLANT IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS

"Excellent career development opportunity for experienced Mechanical Engineer to take the lead on plant and maintenance improvement projects."

£35-55000 Dependent on Experience + Bonus + Excellent Benefits + Relocation Assistance

Location: East Lothian, Scotland

Commutable from Edinburgh, Berwick upon Tweed, Dunbar, North Berwick, Haddington, East Linton, Musselburgh, South Queensferry, Livingston, Dalkeith, Bonnyrigg, Bathgate, Relocation assistance may be available.

 

 

Working within a plant maintenance team, you'll already know that there's a constant dilemma between maintaining the plant and improving it.

 

As a Mechanical Engineer, you'll probably identify opportunities for plant improvement all the time, but you never have the chance to carry any of those projects out.

 

It can be frustrating, mainly when you know those improvement projects could make a massive difference in the production plant's process efficiency, yield, or downtime.

 

If that's the case, you could be the person our client needs for their company. They're a highly respected household name with operations spanning the globe, and they need a graduate-level mechanical engineer to help them improve their plant operations.

 

The role reports to the Maintenance Manager but sits aside from the day-to-day maintenance activities to allow you to focus on these medium to long-term improvement projects entirely.

 

Using your mechanical engineering knowledge and experience of 365/24/7 heavy processing machinery, you'll research known issues and create plans for resolving them with robust, long-term solutions. Our client isn't interested in "sticking plaster" fixes, as they are focused on increasing uptime and plant reliability for the future and the present.

 

There'll be plenty of opportunities to use your project management skills as you'll oversee the implementation of your improvement projects, liaising with all the other relevant departments and managing sub-contractors as required.

 

As our client's plant runs continuously, you'll need some flexibility to work shifts, but, in return, our client will invest in you by fully supporting your career development and progress through their business. They also offer relocation assistance if you live outside of their commutable area.

 

Given the nature of this role, our client expects you will have a degree in a mechanical engineering related discipline and will have worked in a continuous heavy industry such as chemicals, glass, steel, or construction materials.

Demonstrable track record of project leadership via internal project and site engineering teams and external contractors/sub-contractors within a high safety critical, culture.

 

In-depth understanding of planned preventative maintenance, continuous improvement and energy consumption.

 

Excellent financial management experience including capital investment budget proposals and approval process in line with strategic capital forecasts.

"Fantastic career development opportunity for degree educated Chemical Engineer"

 

£40-55000 (Dependent on Experience)  + Bonus + Excellent Benefits + Relocation Assistance

What do you know about cement?

 

If your answer is along the lines of "I once mixed some with my dad to fix the garage floor", then you're probably not the person we're looking for in this role. Sorry. Life isn't always fair.

 

However, if your answer includes words like Alite, Belite, Tricalcium aluminate, and Brownmillerite (without Googling "what is cement?"), then we're talking the same language.

 

As an experienced chemical process engineer, you'll know your way around a cement plant. You'll understand the various processes involved in producing cement in a 365/24/7 operation.

 

Our client knows as much about cement as anyone. They should do, as they've been producing it for many, many years.

 

But they do need someone to work with them to improve their processes at this particular plant. And those continuous improvement processes will be a core focus of your role.

 

Like all heavy engineering plants, they use significant amounts of power and are keen to continually develop company-wide power reduction projects to drive down their power consumption. Alongside that, they want to optimise their fuel consumption and increase the use of Waste Derived Fuels and Alternative Raw Materials to reduce their fuel spend even further.

 

So, those are examples of the large-scale and long-term projects you'll be working on alongside your day-to-day analysis of the process data to optimise machine performance and utilisation.

 

Due to the nature of this role, our client expects you to have a degree in chemical engineering and either hold or be willing to work towards an IOSH qualification and Chartership, which they will fully support.

 

They are also happy to provide relocation assistance to move you to their local area if you live further away.

 

There's much more detail to discuss so please indicate your interest by emailing your CV quoting reference LX 855060.
