Our client is a fast growing and dynamic niche food manufacturer with a unique model of supplying both retail as well as direct to consumer. Post pandemic they are seeing a considerable upturn in demand and as a result they are looking to recruit a Production Supervisor to join their team.
Reporting in to the Operations Manager, the role will be to lead and develop an efficient manufacturing operation in line with the site plan and the business KPIs. Within this role you will have responsibilities for a small production team as well as the reasonability for planning, keeping an eye on quality and ensuring the production schedule is met.
You will need to have production supervisory experience within the food manufacturing industry, passion and enthusiasm to drive the Continuous Improvement process to achieve better cost effectiveness, productivity, quality and hygiene whilst developing your team to perform and grow in their roles. You will be forward thinking in your outlook and yet be prepared to lead from the front when required.
It is essential that you have a positive outlook, with a can-do attitude and good communication and relationship building skills. You will be ambitious and willing to develop, whilst having the ability to stand in for the Operations Manager on occasions.
It will probably appeal to you if you are currently working in a food production environment, have 'learnt the ropes' but progression for you is restricted in your current business and you are ambitious to progress. This role will challenge you as the business is fast moving, dynamic and demanding. You will be responsible for a team of up to 20 operatives ensuring the product is prepared and packed on time, but most importantly that it is done to the budgeted cost.
This is a great job in a fast moving business for a talented and production supervisor.
