A great team, positive workplace, quality food and a true appreciation for staff- if these are all things that you look for in your next employer then this really could be the opportunity for you!

This exciting company is a well-established and growing premium food manufacturer that is constantly expanding and developing its sites, products, team and culture for all those on board. A real team player, motivating role model and someone with a real personality would be the perfect candidate for this role - could you be the next leader of the production team?

The Production Shift Manager will:

*Ensure that a safe working environment exists for all employees and that the operation meets the standards set out in the Group Health & Safety policy.
*Maintain standards of quality, food safety, hygiene and housekeeping within your area through GMP to ensure that both the business and customer standards are fully met.
*Manage the performance of the team and also develop the team by actively coaching them to the required level of competence to encourage continuous improvement and high levels of efficiency.
*Ensure the delivery of agreed KPIs across the operation and that systems are in place to collect the necessary data to measure performance against these agreed KPIs.

If these responsibilities are ones you have previously taken on, and you also have a proven track record of managing and coaching staff within production, challenging existing ideas and systems within the manufacturing environment and also improving efficiency (CI and Lean Manufacturing) on site.

In addition to the above, you must also have experience within the food manufacturing environment due to the nature of the company and products that they produce. It is also preferable that you have previously worked in a similar role such as a Production Manager, Team Manager, Shift Manager, Section Manager, Section Leader, Line Leader, Production Supervisor or similar.
