Shift Manager required for a large bakery site in Greater Manchester. Early shift - 6am - 2pm Monday to Friday.

You will have the ability to coach and develop teams, work seamlessly with colleagues in different departments and have an understanding of the bigger picture. Experience in Continuous Improvement methods would be an added bonus.
