Gtr London / South East UK (Various)

  • Well established, expanding UK based lean consultancy
  • Interim Associate Lean Consultant assignments in the Greater London area / South East UK
  • Various contracts available from 3 months to 24 months duration with potential to extend
  • Excellent Lean toolbox and workshop facilitation skills – essential
  • Experience of process mapping to drive improvements – essential
  • Sound coaching skills – essential
  • Automotive, Aerospace, Rail or Industrial industry experience - ideally   

These assignments may well suit a Lean Practitioner with experience in the automotive, aerospace, rail or industrial sector OR a candidate with Operational / Leadership experience, but possessing a knowledgeable lean toolbox and vast lean implementation and coaching experience.

The Interim Lean Consultant’s remit will vary depending on the contract, but is likely to focus on the design and rollout visual management centres, lead focused improvement projects linked to improvement maintenance and deliver real operational excellence cost savings through coaching and delivery of projects.

To be considered you will be a highly energetic Lean facilitator and trainer with vast experience of implementing lean initiatives and projects. There is a need to be both strategic in advising the client and operational; with a focus on both ‘quick wins’ and delivering sustainable long-term results as part of the end client’s cultural transformation programme.  Therefore candidates will demonstrate presence, excellent communication skills, possess a ‘hands-on’ style and be appropriate and flexible in utilising their process improvement tools.

You will be available for a start date ideally at the start of August 2017, but as there are several assignments there is a level of flexibility.  These assignments will likely best suit an established Interim Contractor, however candidates embarking on their first Interim contract will also be considered.
