Production Manager / Shift Manager

Chester / North Wales

Salary circa £35,000 pa - Days Mon-Fri

With a track-record of over 70 years within food manufacturing and having enjoyed steady growth and developed market leading positions, this organisation retains a task culture, where a focus on skills, leadership and team ethos has underpinned growth. As part of current expansion an exciting opportunity exists to join as Production Manager and take responsibility for the production function.

Working Days Monday to Friday, the Production Manager appointed will work from a new production facility in the North Wales/Chester area. The role will require a `start-up` mentality as the business plan to significantly increase production volumes over the coming months. Internally, the Manager appointed will have close liaison with the Factory Manager, Technical Manager and Maintenance Manager.

The appointed Production Manager will use their relevant experience to manage a relatively small food production site, within a modern building. They will introduce CI methodologies to the site, ensure Quality parameters are being met and H&S systems and procedures are being adhered to. There will be a requirement to measure and report on operational KPI`s, apply a `right first time` approach, review, compile and implement SOP`s and best practices and ensure these are embraced by the team.

There will be responsibility for managing Dispatch and liaising with Head Office in relation to Production performance. The jobholder will be expected to motivate and manage the team ensuring high levels of performance, dealing with any issues effectively. There will be the opportunity to get involved in the testing and installation of new equipment and supporting the Technical team with the selection of raw materials and testing new product concepts and overseeing the introduction of new products into full-scale manufacturing. 

Over the medium-term it is envisaged that the site will run across 3 shifts, with the Production Manager overseeing this expansion, so we are seeking an individual with experience gained within a high-volume fast-paced food manufacturer, in a Production Manager or Shift Manager capacity. It is imperative that applicants are comfortable working in a flat hierarchy and it may benefit an application if an individual has experience from within the Dairy sector, although this is not essential.
