About the Role:

This is a newly created role by the business. As a Manufacturing and Service Manager you will look after half of the factory (approximately 70 staff on the floor).

  • Champion continuous improvement programs to drive efficiency and productivity.
  • Identify, develop and implement new processes including documentation and training of staff.

  • Mentor and develop the Supervisors.

Skills and Experience:

  • Minimum 3 years working experience in a leadership role, within an engineering, assembly, service or technical manufacturing division. This role will not suit you if all your experience has been within FMCG.
  • Demonstrated experience with end to end people management (recruitment, motivation, setting targets, appraisals, skills gap analysis, absenteeism, safety and performance management).
  • Any experience with an ERP system such as SAP will be highly regarded.


  • Very accessible location - 5 minutes walk from the closest train station.
  • Free undercover staff parking.
  • Attractive compensation package with a bonus component attached to this role.
