Operations Manager (Food Manufacturing)

South / West Yorkshire

£58,000 - £60,000 + 15% Bonus.

The day is finally upon us – there is light at the end of the tunnel and a way back to normality. There is one thing for sure, if this lockdown has taught us anything then it is certainly to make the most of our lives while we can.

And what better way to start than with an opportunity that can push you into site number 2 within the next 12-18 months, looking after a factory with numbers you could only dream of!

This will be an opportunity for an experienced Senior Production Manager / Manufacturing Manager / Operations Manager to step into this busy food manufacturer and drive positive change with a long term plan. You will be capturing the engagement of a long-standing workforce and introducing new ways of working to revolutionise the production process.

When managing teams of over 400 people, it goes without saying that you need a personality / management style that people naturally gravitate towards. There is no use coming in as an outdated dictator. You will need to be democratic in your approach, show high levels of empathy yet have the adaptability to both support and challenge each member of your team.

Lean Manufacturing is a term that gets thrown around way too much. However the correct utilisation of its tools is going to play a huge part in your success. We expect you to be fully versed in your knowledge and understanding of CI techniques, yet need to see clear, tangible examples of where these have been implemented alongside teams that have limited knowledge and need clear outlines.

What’s next?

If you fancy an opportunity to develop into the next Site Factory Manager, looking after substantial teams within one of the largest food manufacturing companies out there in what has to be a career defining role then I strongly suggest you apply below or get in touch with Dan on Daniel@thesterlingchoice.com
