Full Time
As one of the leading Train Engineering Businesses in the UK, they offer a comprehensive range of refurbishment, maintenance, overhaul and repair services to the UK rail sector, providing services on passenger trains and specialist infrastructure vehicles. They are based in Kilmarnock and employ over 80 people in their 4 road 20+ vehicle capacity depot.

They take pride in the quality of work they produce and are committed to continuously improving their processes and service levels, a review of which has led them to create a new position of Production Supervisor to bring greater focus to each project by better managing planned work and associated costs in a different way.

This new role carries a high level of accountability for the overall management of the collective resources needed to successfully complete each allocated project, including the skill / labour requirements, hours, materials, budgets, quality and safety standards, team behaviors and customer requests.

It will involve managing approved projects plans and timelines, ensuring the costs around resources needed including hours, tooling, materials and consumables are met and that all work allocated is endorsed daily with all relevant paperwork completed and signed.

You will work to have a complete understanding of the project status, costs and slippages at any time, ensuring a recovery plan or revised proposal is available to discuss with both the Production Manager and the customer if required and agree a daily target plan, run a daily project board meeting and discuss any production issues including materials, resources, tools and quality to minimise any rework.

This key role is a pivotal position, interacting with every part of the business, so good communication skills are vital, from effectively managing multi-trade teams to briefing management, other staff and customers on progress and next steps. They expect you to be a strong QHSE advocate, able to manage risk and promote continuous improvement, most likely gained from experience in a similar type role.

You should ideally come from a rail or engineering background, but more important is your demonstrable experience and so if you feel you have not only the right skills, but would enjoy the challenge of a new role, they would like to hear from you.

In the first instance, please send in your CV and give them a flavour of what has attracted you to this role, if they think they match, they will invite you to meet us and discuss the role in more detail.
