Engineering Manager required for a food manufacturing business in Norfolk. Great opportunity for a 'change agent' to help a growing business.

This company is a supplier of chilled and frozen food products to many of the major retailers, wholesalers and foodservice companies in the UK food sector. They have a long history of supplying high quality products and are investing in their infrastructure to ensure the business competes at the highest level.

An Engineering Manager is required to join their site in Norfolk and lead a team of around 20 at this 24/7 manufacturing facility.

This is a great opportunity for a strong man manager with experience of delivering change to make a bit impact. For the right candidate relocation assistance may be offered if you are based outside of the region.
