Job Details

Engineering Transformation and Strategy - you will take the lead in a full robotic and automation project across multiple sites of varying scales.

This business has really solid fundamentals with a diverse product offering and wide customer base. But companies don't excel by being content with their lot.

This business has identified an opportunity to offer wide-scale operational excellence from an engineering perspective and you will lead one of the biggest shifts in the company's history; this role will scope and instigate change that will impact on this company for the next decade plus.

It is a newly created position that will see you take overall responsibility for the engineering function for this multi-site food manufacturing group. However, you will have strong site-based teams allowing you the opportunity to horizon scan and create the blueprint for a best-in-class automation and robotic upgrade project, of which you will be the SME.

Culturally, this business has a lot of good people in it and would be recognised as an organisation that does business in the right way, getting results through sustainable and modern management techniques.

As this is a newly created role, you will have full scope to impart your ideas of best practise rather than walking in a previous incumbent's shoes.

Responsibilities will include:

  • Taking ownership of the strategic group engineering agenda
  • Create and guide the groups approach to Automation and Robotics
  • Facilitate the creation and review of the group capital expenditure program
  • Liaising closely with Group Risk & Safety Director to ensure the wellbeing of all employees

What do you need?

We have a full job spec we can share with you, but FMCG multi-site engineering leadership experience will be key. But on top of that, the leadership and knowledge that can both create a full robotic & automation plan and the capability to implement it via specialist and site-based teams.
