My client is a successful manufacturing company producing a range products for the healthcare and cosmetics industry. Established for over 250 years they are a stable and well know brand who distribute quality products through on line and retail partners.

The company is investing in their current manufacturing operation and with this significant new investment has come a number of job opportunities for engineering professionals from the FMCG and high speed production industries.

Currently the company is seeking an Operations Manager to join the business to look after the needs of its Peterborough manufacturing facility.

Looking after a multi-disciplined team your primary objective is to create and initiate strategies which will help improve efficiency and increase production for the site. This needs to be balanced against the requirement to retain the current staffing levels and ensure company morale is maintained during this period of change. Therefore the role requires an individual with a delicate touch, who can manage change and bring everyone with them in order to get the facility to the next level.

You will also have responsibility for a significant Capex budget for new tooling and machinery as the business completes some modernisation projects over the next few years. Therefore the company is interested in managers who have had direct experience of managing capex projects involving this sort of investment.

This is an excellent opportunity for a manager who has experience of running a manufacturing  facility to have a significant part within an organisation which will offer future possibilities for progression.

To be considered you will need to demonstrate:

*  A background in engineering management or production management within a manufacturing facility.

*  Excellent understanding of lean manufacturing techniques and other production methodology

*  Previously held responsibility for a significant P&L

*   Previously held responsibility for Capex projects which will include machinery and/or tooling

*  Demonstrable experience of change management within an organisation (examples will be asked for)

In return the company offers a variety of benefits and the opportunity to become part of a growing business where you will significant influence within the organisation and the opportunity for future carer development.
