My client is a very well established, internationally recognised food company who pride themselves on their impressive status in the marketplace. The company has experienced very impressive recent growth and they have huge plans for future development and progression.

With this they are currently recruiting an Engineering Manager to manage and control the growing engineering function on site.

Due to the nature of the business the role will be incredibly diverse and will offer a multitude of exciting responsibilities and duties for the successful candidate.

You would be responsible for the supervision, formulation, administration and coordination of the engineering maintenance function, engineering projects, policies, processes and methods designed to improve operating performance, reducing waste and downtime and promote cost savings across site.

Due to the diversity of the role, my client is keen to find a manager who can demonstrate an incredibly strong and proven background Engineering management. An understanding and experience in fast moving, highly automated environments would be at a huge advantage, as would an appreciation of the canning industry. Candidates from the food and automotive industries will be considered. Experience in lean tools will also be beneficial - SMED, six sigma etc.

On top of this someone who can demonstrate a background in project management, in a capacity where tight deadlines, both in a time capacity and financial capacity, would again be at a huge advantage.

My client is ideally seeking a manager with a degree background (Engineering or Operational), and someone with a thorough understanding of electrical and mechanical competencies, HNC / HND will also be considered.
