Your experience need not be sector-specific; of more importance would be your understanding of manufacturing processes and project costing, your ability to interface effectively with suppliers and your ability to make a positive contribution across a broad customer and product base.
  • We would expect strong software literacy, and in particular, a good grasp of the MS Office suite of products including Word, Excel and Power Point as well as MS Projects.
