Job Description

Job title:Production Manager
Location:Halifax
Salary:£35k - £40k (dependant on experience)

The Opportunity
Do you know what a really good production operation looks like? Want to put one in place?
We have the challenge for you!

We're on the hunt for a new Production Manager to develop our existing team and improve our performance across the board to make us the most efficient operation we can be. Working as part of the senior management team at our largest production site your aim is to create and implement our new strategy which will guarantee we're not just the biggest player in our market, we're also the best!

The Role
As our new Production Manager you'll be responsible for making sure our stock is manufactured at the highest quality, in the required quantities, on time and to budget and (most importantly) in a happy and safe environment.

Alongside the normal production scheduling, stock counts and order completion we're looking for someone who is going to motivate and develop our workforce. We enjoy coming to work and think everyone should feel the same so we're putting a lot of effort into developing training plans and development schemes for the staff you'll be managing - we now need someone to spearhead that.

This isn't a job for the faint hearted; we are very fast-paced production operation and need to stay that way but we also think it's as much about what we put into the business as what we get out. Our new Production Manager need to reflect these values.

The Candidate
If you're an experienced Production or Manufacturing Manager with great people management skills we'd love to hear from you!

Owing to the upskilling we're looking to do with our Production Operatives to be able to hit the ground running you're going to need a strong working knowledge of lean manufacturing, Kaizen and 5S. Health and safety is a key priority for us so any qualification (NEBOSH, IOSH or equivalent) will be seen as a real benefit.

Even if you haven't come from the fenestration industry don't let that put you off. We have a strong support network of Production Supervisors and senior management who know the industry like the back of their hand and can teach you everything you need to know - we're just looking for someone who wants to learn.

The Company
We are the largest privately owned door and window manufacturer in the UK with production sites across the country. The Production Manager role will be heading up the manufacturing operation at our head site in Halifax, based in an old foundry.
We've experienced a lot of change over the past few years (we think it's all positive) which has led to increased production and bigger market share, we're now looking to channel investment into our staff and need a forward thinking, hands on Production Manager to champion that.
