Our client is a highly successful, international aerospace engineering group, with a first-class engineering and manufacturing capability. They supply high quality precision engineered products to Aerospace OEMs and their major Tier 1 suppliers, and offer career growth and long term employment for the successful candidate.

LEAN manufacturing is being embraced in the entire organisation, implementing modern improvement processes across their whole business. With a growing order book and highly demanding customers, continuous improvements are essential.

The role will report directly in to the Site Operations Director and be pivotal in implementing LEAN principles & continuous improvement techniques, across a large multi-process site. Initially, you will be tasked with the following:

* Generate and run lean transformation projects
* Act as process improvement lead across all areas of the factory
* Drive measure & monitor all continuous improvements
* Act as focus for & mentor to all employees in CI / lean areas
* Develop & cascade 'lean thinking' to everyone
* Identify & prioritise improvement areas, set goals & strategies
* Apply Lean Six Sigma Methodology & tools.

As the ideal candidate, qualifications would be advantageous, but experience of successfully implementing lean transformation projects, in a precision engineering environment, is essential. Well versed in the Automotive Industry or a forward-thinking Aerospace Manufacturing facility that has implemented or started to implement LEAN manufacturing, you will be both excited by and a passionate advocate of such continuous improvements.

An excellent immediate position, this role also offers superb short to medium term prospects for development in to more senior positions for the fully qualified candidate.
