We are working with a fibre optics manufacturer to find a Production Manager for their Haverhill manufacturing facility. Reporting to the Operations Director you will be responsible for the day-to-day running of the production lines through a team of 6 direct reports and around 50 personnel. This is a newly created role due to company growth and the need for a more process driven and efficient production facility.
We are looking for someone with drive and passion for introducing fresh ideas to improve efficiencies. As well as manufacturing a range of standard products the company also work with their customers to produce bespoke components and there is an engineering team with several Design Engineers to support this.
We would be particularly keen to speak to those who have the production management skills as well as knowledge of fibre optics. However, there are aligned industries such as cable harness manufacturing, PCB production and similar which would also transfer over. Knowledge and previous implementation of Lean practices is desired as well as a passion for continuous improvement.
The site currently operates on a day shift only basis but has recently expanded their production lines due to increased customer demand. The company is part of a global group who are committed to the on-going development of their employees. There could also be opportunities to share best practice with overseas factories and for career progression within the group.
