The Company

Our client is a true Australian success story, manufacturing a wide range of market leading products within their sector. They own and operate their own manufacturing assets in China and due to the success of the business they are opening a second facility.

The Role

They are seeking to recruit a Strategic Operations Manager to go up to the region and lead the introduction of best on class C.I. Programs to ensure the ongoing success of both Manufacturing sites. Reporting to the CEO, this could either be a fixed term or permanent assignment and it will play a critical role in the successful commissioning and opening of the second facility, as well as implementing a C.I. program across both sites. You will work with site management personnel and operators, coaching and facilitating Lean practices and overseeing all implementation activities from a capital and C.I. perspective.

The Candidate

  • You will be tertiary qualified in an Engineering / Operations discipline with experience in leading C.I. programs within a manufacturing environment.
  • As this role is based in the China region, you will be fluent in either Mandarin / Cantonese or both and have demonstrated experience in rolling out C.I. programs down to a shop floor level.
  • Experience in commissioning a new facility would be highly advantageous.
  • Strong commercial acumen with excellent people management and coaching skills.

This is an excellent opportunity to really make your mark in a very successful Australian business. The business is flexible on having this as a fixed term arrangement or permanent solution and you will report directly to the CEO. Both manufacturing sites are located outside of Shanghai and the business will offer a competitive remuneration package.
