Description: Proactive Remote Operations Plant Performance Manager required to ensure the safe, efficient remote operation, monitoring and on-boarding of significant manufacturing plants situated around the world on a 24-hour basis.
Our client is part of a multi-billion-pound global organisation employing more than 70,000 staff in more than 80 countries and are recognised market leaders in their niche manufacturing sector. As a result of continued success and an ongoing programme of strategic growth, they are now seeking to recruit an experienced and proactive Remote Operations Plant Performance Manager to complement their established and professional team.
Based near Rotherham, the successful candidate will be the interface between your assigned sites (situated around the world), product supply and the Remote Operations Centre (ROC) Shift Managers – ensuring your plants are optimised against Tonnage and Bulk requirements and operate at the lowest effective power cost.
You will be responsible for remotely reviewing plant performance daily, identifying and reporting loss making situations and driving the resolution of reactive issues with sites and engineering, as well as co-ordinating and supporting the remote shut down and start-up of plants on a national basis, matching capacity to meet customer demands or the request of the product supply group and managing plant “upset and emergency” situations as they may arise.
Other responsibilities for this varied and challenging role will include actively managing process safety parameters for the ASUs/ HYCO plants under control and work in conjunction with Process Safety to minimise Hydrocarbon safety risks, and also both identifying and implementing plant improvement projects, interfacing with project managers for changes to the plants and reporting the project benefits into Power Steering.
As a key interface for onboarding new plants to the ROC, including gaining expertise in their operation (necessitating occasional visits to site wherever they may be – including Switzerland, the UK and Ireland, South Africa and Israel amongst others), you will ensure that actions from the ROC roll-in checklist are completed, developing training material and training the ROC Shift Managers as required, and also producing and reviewing the on-sites monthly reconciliation reports and monthly Cost and KPI reports to track progress against budget, as well as the implementation of performance targets across the team in order to ensure consistency across the operation as a whole.
To be considered for this exceptional opportunity it is envisaged that you will have previous process / chemical / mechanical engineering experience gained from any environment that utilises fractional distillation – with comprehensive knowledge of air separation processes associated with process plant environments, and you will demonstrate extensive knowledge of ASU operations, with Hyco and CO2 knowledge proving distinctly advantageous. Realistically qualified to degree level in a relevant engineering discipline, you will demonstrate excellent organisational and communication skills at all levels along with an analytical approach and effective decision-making abilities.
