  • Well established medium size manufacturer  
  • Manufacturing plant base - Surrey
  • Excellent Lean toolbox and workshop facilitation skills essential
  • Manufacturing or Engineering industry experience essential 
  • Six Sigma Black Belt preferred (not essential)
  • Initially a six month interim contract with potential to extend
  • Immediate start / latest by 30 January 2017

We require two Interim Lean Six Sigma Managers / Interim Continuous Improvement Managers to be integral in a cultural transformation programme for a well-established manufacturer.  The Interim Lean Six Sigma Managers / Interim Continuous Improvement Managers will have a broad remit including:

  • Understand existing process maps, consider these in context of lean and six sigma, then devise and efficiently deliver effective solutions
  • Mentor and coach in Lean / Lean Six Sigma methodologies including to senior stakeholders
  • Lead and facilitate lean focused workshops
  • Work with the team to uncover and assess lean opportunities; helping to prioritise those projects with greatest benefit and support delivery with well executed sustainable steps  
  • Lead specific projects and apply lean six sigma tools to improve process capability and eliminate defects
  • Identify and implement key department metrics
  • Share best practice and innovations

To be considered you will be a highly energetic Lean Six Sigma facilitator and trainer with vast experience of implementing lean initiatives and process improvement within a world class manufacturing or engineering environment.  There is a need to be both strategic and operation; with a focus on both ‘quick wins’ and delivering sustainable long-term results as part of the organisation’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 immediately (for an immediate start) or be available at the latest by Monday 30 January 2017 (ideally earlier).  This assignment will likely best suit an established Interim, however candidates embarking on their first interim assignment will also be considered.  Please note that the daily rate range stated of £450 - £600 per day is dependent on experience.
