This is a key role alongside the management team, duties will include:

  • Manage people in an open, communicative and motivational style respecting the need and requirement of people, processes and customer.
  • Work to and exceed KPIs for health and safety, environmental excellence and high quality, on time production output.
  • Ensure your areas follow manufacturing procedures to ensure quality product   
  • Foster a continuous improvement culture in your area
  • Carry out your team’s recruitment, performance management, training, disciplinary, absence management, appraisals, communication and engagement.
