Process Improvement Leads


The Tulip Ltd business is in a period of exciting change and we are determined to restore Tulip‚Äôs position as the pre-eminent of pork and pork based food in the UK and to achieve that, we need to return a position where we re-empower our sites and provide them with all the support to deliver consistently and with excellence.  The formation of the new Process Optimisation team within Tulip Food Company (UK) will focus on improving operational efficiencies instilling a high performing culture across the Tulip Food Company (UK) sites. We are looking to appoint 3 Process Improvement Leads with a plan to begin the programme in October 2017.  The roles will be regionalised, however, successful candidates will need to be flexible with the expectation to be away from home during the working week.  Relocating would not be necessary as there would be extensive travel and stop overs during the week.
Overview of the Role

Working as a Process Improvement Lead you will be accountable for identifying new initiatives on the factory floors across multiple Tulip Ltd sites and subsequently building your own project plan with Stakeholders.  Reporting into the Continuous Improvement Director, there will be extensive travel across sites to identify, manage and be accountable for improvement projects that will deliver a demonstrable financial improvement to the P&L
What We Are Looking For

We are looking for candidates who are people orientated and personable with excellent communication skills, as a large proportion of the role will be speaking to senior managers at sites to implement new ideas. You will have already experienced or led change in a manufacturing environment by implementing continuous improvement techniques. You will need to be numerically strong for this position as well as having good written and presenting skills. As our industry is incredibly fast paced, you will need to show you are resourceful and can work on your own initiative at times. As these positions are mostly factory based, you will need to be comfortable with a food manufacturing environment.
Food manufacturing experience is desirable, as is a lean manufacturing / continuous improvement qualification. A driving licence is essential for this position.
In order to deliver our ambitious goals for the business we need to build a team of exceptional individuals, to work together with all our colleagues to drive change.  This is a fantastic opportunity to be part of this unique team and would suit someone with a passion for Continuous Improvement that wants to make a difference in our business and is ambitious to progress.
