The Manufacturing Shift Managers will focus on ensuring that the consumer receives a perfect quality product, at the right time and place whilst as an Ambassador of lean, you will drive losses from the factory in order to maximise efficiency and productivity.  You will initially work on a permanent night shift and then once initiated work on a rotating day and night shift pattern.  

You’ll be an inspirational leader with a passion for coaching and developing your team, you’ll be someone who is a role model of coaching behaviours and provides your team with the tools they need to reach their full potential.  It is essential that you come from a manufacturing background (ideally food or FMCG) with a proven track record of managing and developing medium to large teams of people.  You will be a natural problem-solver and be ready to suggest new ways of working to enable the factory to compete at a higher level.  Experience of modern manufacturing techniques such as lean manufacturing, 5S and TPM would also be highly desirable.
