Job Description

Assembly Production Manager

Walkers Variety Crisps, The Royal Variety Show, Kelloggs Variety Packs. Variety is generally seen as a good thing, but in manufacturing do we always welcome it?

Imagine two scenarios:

PM: What are we making today?
Sales: Same as yesterday. And the day before. And the day before that.
PM: Good-o. Everyone crack on then.
*puts kettle on and reaches for the newspaper*

Or would you prefer:

PM: What are we making today?
Sales: Well. There's this brand new machine we've never made before. There's umpteen variants on previous ones. An urgent spares order. Oh yes, and we need to organise a team to go to Bratislava tomorrow for a breakdown.
PM: Looks like I picked the wrong day to quit smoking.
*Leaps into action, organises the team, gets the work done and goes home with a real feeling of achievement*

Be honest. Which one sounds more exciting?

If it's the first one then this role isn't the one for you. Enjoy your coffee.

If it's the second one then please get in touch with me on 01257 244740. We should talk.
