The Opportunity

A wonderful opportunity to work for a global manufacturing specialist in energy management products, voted on of the top 25 companies to work for worldwide. A multibillion pound company who are keen believers in safe, reliable, efficient and sustainable energy. You'll be tasked with working in their large Leeds based production facility to oversee between 3 & 5 production lines and their associated team managers, on the assembly of a number of different products. The company are a multibillion pound business and this is one of their 2 UK production sites. So you'll be a strong people manager, with a background working controlling a production process and leading a group of people within a manufacturing or production assembly environment.

You'll be given the long term progression chances, you'll have passion to climb higher up the ladder or branch off into other areas, and this role will supply it. The role reports into the Manufacturing Operations Manager for the whole site.

The Role:

You're role will be to manage the whole process for the assembly of electrical distribution equipment, you'll have between 3 and 5 team leaders reporting into you and underneath each of them probably 10 operatives. You'll be part of the senior leadership team with 4 other Process Managers, one Industrial Engineering Manager and one Maintenance Engineering Manager.

Your deliverables will be based around safety, quality, delivery, efficiency, improvement and most importantly people management. The plant already runs on a lean manufacturing model, with 5S, six sigma, Kanban, SIM, MRP and they have their own production system that is a combination of these, so naturally you will be trained on this. Naturally you'll be someone who see's improvement opportunities, you'll hopefully have a background within engineering and a form of qualification whether this be electrical, mechanical, automotive, industrial engineer or similar.

You'll be expected to have a minimum of 5 years' experience in leadership within a production or manufacturing environment, this can be automotive, tier 1 or 2, electronics, FMCG, production assembly, packaging or similar, we aren't too precious about the industry as long as it's lean, 5S and has involved you overseeing production lines and team leaders.

You'll have an eye for detail and be a problem solver, you'll react to production problems, quality issues, and ensure targets are met. You will be good with data and will collate issues and losses and develop methods of reducing and potentially eliminating these issues moving forwards. You'll be a promotor of communication and will enforce the companies open communication channels and culture across your team.




Responsibilities:

Your main responsibilities are ensuring you meet your deliverables, you'll naturally have targets to achieve in a managerial role. Objectively you'll be targeted on productivity, quality, efficiency, process improvement and people management. The leadership team together have to ensure production targets are met and help the overall process improve. You'll try to minimise losses and will have the support of engineering and other experience process managers to share knowledge and experience. You'll come from an engineering background, who has then moved into a leadership based role, so solutions in this field will come naturally to yourself.

You'll have 3/5 lines under your direction each of which will probably 10 operatives on each, who report unto a team leader, who in turn reports into yourself. You'll be used to working in a LEAN working environment, with 6 sigma or Kanban systems, but you don't need to be qualified in these areas, but if you are its naturally a bonus.

If you like the sound of what you hear regarding this opportunity then please feel free to hit apply.

Experience:

-Engineering qualification HNC or equivalent, (electrical, mechanical, industrial, automotive or similar)
-5 years + leadership experience within a manufacturing or production assembly based company
