£six figure package
Based: Blagdon, Somerset
Here at Yeo Valley we know that “what got us here” may not get us to where we want to be…. That’s why we’ve now got The Big Plan: a strategic framework for guiding us all towards our ambitious future. There’s a lot that needs to change as our brand and our business becomes bigger.
This position represents a unique chance to join the executive leadership team and will lead multiple manufacturing facilities across the South West producing yogurt, ice cream, sorbets, desserts as well as fruit and creams. We are at the start of a new and ambitious five year business plan and the manufacturing director will be a key part of the leadership team which will help shape define and implement core priorities.
The successful person will lead the push to operational excellence across the four manufacturing plants, fully reviewing our organisational design whilst delivering a multi-million pound investment programme to enhance our manufacturing capabilities. You will also play a lead role in making sure that excellence is achieved through a highly engaged and supportive team culture.
You will bring experience gained from senior manufacturing roles, ideally from the FMCG sector. Beyond this you will have a proven track record of leading a manufacturing function through a period of significant change. You are someone who relies on great analysis to drive your decisions, you enjoy being a strategic thinker. You also excel at building and developing high performing people and teams, who share best practice. We expect a lot but you are someone who thrives in this type of challenge. You’ve been waiting for an opportunity like this, a chance to lead a large team on a journey of transformational change to deliver exceptional results.
