A challenging and rewarding opportunity

We're looking for someone who gets the best out of others, who will lead, coach, motivate and inspire your people to perform on a day-to-day basis. You'll be responsible for production mapping and planning with a real focus on achieving the departmental objectives which support the site business plans. Your role will also involve carrying out work environment audits, managing wastage and getting involved in project work. Above all, you will strive to drive continuous improvement at all times by taking an innovative, creative approach and using your imagination to develop ways of making things better.

You will need to be highly PC literate, with any knowledge of SAP an advantage. It would also be ideal, but not essential, if you have a Food Technology or related qualification. What is essential is that you have an open mind and a pro-active approach towards developing your people as well as new initiatives.
