Our client has been established for more than 40 years and specialise in the planned preventative and reactive maintenance, service and repair of an exhaustive range of special purpose waste processing machinery to clients throughout the UK, and as a result of continued success and an ongoing programme of strategic growth, are now seeking to recruit an enthusiastic, organised and proactive Production Manager to complement their established and professional team.

Working within a busy shop floor environment on numerous machines at any one time, you will be responsible for assessing the condition of returned machines to establish their viability and suitability for reconditioning, and will therefore essentially possess comprehensive hands on engineering experience with particular focus on fabrication, electrical and hydraulic systems knowledge, potentially gained within the FLT, agricultural machinery or materials handling sectors, with previous experience gained within the waste machinery sector considered an advantage.
In a highly competitive environment where customer satisfaction is key, you will essentially demonstrate a flexible and adaptable approach to the needs of the business to ensure machines are dispatched as required and customer relationships maintained, whilst mentoring and developing the team and keeping abreast of technological developments within the industry as well as being instrumental in the identification, implementation and sustainment of continuous improvement activities within the fast-paced production environment.
This is an exceptional opportunity for a suitably enthusiastic and self-motivated production management professional to join a highly respected market leader in their niche special purpose machinery sector and offers both stability and progression as well as a generous remuneration and benefits package.
