The Role

A challenge and the chance to make a difference.

In this role you will be responsible for the maintenance team, providing leadership and hands on maintenance support. You will also have the autonomy for developing and implementing the Continuous Improvement strategy across the manufacturing operation.

The hiring business is a small but autonomous division of a much larger PLC. They process award winning polymer products and have grown a reputation in their market for excellent customer service.

The role will manage a team of 5 maintenance engineers, both mechanical and electrical bias, providing PPM and reactive maintenance on a real mish mash of equipment and controls systems of varying age ranges. Due to the nature of the kit and the speed of the market they serve this role will require a hands-on doer as well as a leader.

The other aspect of the role is to develop and facilitate improvement activities across the site coaching and mentoring at all levels from director to operator. 5s, OEE, Kaizen, SMED, VSM are all tools you should know the theory of, but the practical implementation is more important than the ability to quote the names.

Why apply? This is a business that has many great qualities, but they have lacked someone to really deliver exceptional maintenance management with the ability to relate to the people in the business. For this reason, it is a genuine challenge and a chance to make a difference.

If you have a multi-skilled maintenance engineering background and are able to truly make business objectives relevant and relatable to the people, please send your cv.
