Location: Tamworth, Staffordshire

Description: Workshop Manager required for a busy niche sector manfacturing workshop environment coordinating the activities of a multi skilled team and ensuring on time delivery of a customer special purpose machinery.

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 hands-on Workshop Manager to complement their established and professional team. 

Based locally to Tamworth and working alongside the Servicing Manager, the successful candidate will be responsible for a small team of multi skilled engineers undertaking a range of machine repair, reconditioning and build activities to often strict timescales and customer deadlines.
Able to demonstrate previous experience in the management of multidisciplinary maintenance teams within a busy production or heavier industrial or manufacturing environment, you will possess excellent communication skills at all levels and the ability to effectively supervise, manage and motivate a team of engineers, as well as fully utilise in-house systems to track progress and coordinate workloads to achieve often demanding production deadlines, with the role often necessitating an active hands-on approach in order to ensure machines leave the factory on time and to the required standard.
Working within a busy shop floor environment on numerous machines at any one time, you will undertake a range of duties including 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 although not essential. You will also be required to oversee all aspects of Health and Safety within the factory environment with appropriate support.
In a highly competitive environment where customer satisfaction is key, you will 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 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 hands on workshop 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.
