The SiteNigel Wright is proud to be partnering with a successful, privately owned business as they look to recruit an Senior Engineering Supervisor.As they embark on a period of change, there is a strategic plan in place to maximise output, increase efficiencies and drive a mindset of proactivity rather than reactivity. The Senior Engineering Supervisor will work closely with the Engineering Manager to ensure that the Engineering strategy supports this.Due to long staff tenure, there is a wealth of knowledge on site, however there is a lack of ownership. Due to the previous success of the site, there hasn't been a need to measure yields, OEE and downtime. To ensure the site is set up for the future, it is essential that the Engineering team understand the impact that the equipment, and the management of it, has on site performance.You will support the Engineering Manager in building strong cross functional relationships, encouraging, and developing operators to allow them to recognise issues with a machine before becoming a major problem. You will demonstrate the importance of a proactive maintenance strategy, and work with production to maximise site output and performance.#This role would suit an Engineering Supervisor that is able to challenge the status quo and who takes pride in creating an engineering team that is really able to add value.RequirementsWe are looking for an Engineering Supervisor who can be a strong support to the Engineering Manager - potentially a future successor. Someone who understands the importance that their team plays in the day to day running and longer-term future of the site. You will spot opportunities - whether that be people or process and feel comfortable coming to the table with new ideas.If you have a background within food manufacturing and have proven experience leading a team of Engineers, then please apply now for a confidential conversation.All 3rd party applications will be forwarded to Nigel Wright.
