Excellent Continuous Improvement / Lean manufacturing opportunity with a progressive manufacturer
***** Candidates with production management experience and more limited Lean / CI skills will be considered alongside candidates possessing extensive Lean / CI skills *****

Our client is part of a European manufacturing group that manufacture high volume quality products. They require a Continuous Improvement Coordinator / Manager to improve the performance of operations by providing constant challenge of the status quo, championing lean philosophy, implementing robust measurement of losses and facilitating the development and implementation of a continuous improvement plan. 

Focussed on driving CI activities including Kaizen events through effective engagement of people, this opportunity offers excellent support from Senior Management / Board level and the potential for career advancement. 

It is essential that candidates have a background in manufacturing and possess experience and understanding of continuous improvement / lean techniques. We requires a candidate who demonstrates experience of driving continuous improvement / lean / six sigma initiatives having held a similar role(s) in the past OR has held a leadership / management role encompassing improvement responsibilities. Six sigma certification would be a distinct advantage, but is certainly not essential. In addition, experience of data analysis is required, but most importantly we require excellent communication skills and an engaging hands-on people management style.
