Food Production Manager
So you've grafted your way up from the bottom- sleeves rolled up, hands on, getting stuck in. You've worked the scatty shift patterns of days, afters and nights, working every hour known to man (or rather, insomniac!) Every job you can think of, yep you've done it- at least once. But finally, all that hard work, all those coffee fuelled shifts and dirty jobs done has paid off. The career ladder is high but the top is ever closer and you find yourself in the world of leadership- as a production manager.
You know the food industry like the back of your hand, having seen (and most likely worked) in pretty much all areas of production- and maybe even a stint in the warehouses too! Leading teams is something you know well- maybe as a shift manager or maybe as a production manager even. But there's just not the size or scale of autonomy you're looking for there. There's more inside you ready to come out.
So what's the ideal opportunity? Well, this one as it goes! The chance to run the production department in a thriving factory that is producing multiple lines of ambient, baked and confection goods at lightning speed for some top suppliers. That's right, I'm talking the kind of well-known products you're dunking into your tea as you're eagerly reading this now.
Kiss goodbye to the shift patterns, because this opportunity will see you with evenings and weekends aplenty and blissfully getting into bed at a reasonable hour. It will see you effectively leading teams of up to 120 who will look to you for guidance and motivation. You know what they do, you understand the process well and it's your understanding and relatable nature which gets the best out of them.
You're a born leader, coaching, developing and motivating is what you do best. Not to mention hitting production plans and targets, and your keen eye for implementing techniques to help the team- and the company-thrive. And in return? You get to work for a company who sees their team as their biggest asset. A company who values and respects each and every member of the workforce because it knows how much they contribute to their success' and year on year growth.
So, if this sounds like the role for you, put that biscuit down and send your updated CV to Maddy or give me a call to discuss more on 01733 391515.
