Job Description

The Company 
My client is a thriving manufacturing business in North Wales and is now looking to recruit a new manager to take responsibility for the running of the company's machining activities. 

The Role 
Reporting into the Manufacturing Manager, the Machine Shop Manager will take responsibility for all machining functions including, production/capacity planning, workshop layout, shop floor organisation and personnel management / development. 
As Machine Shop Manager, you will be required to devise and implement systems to improve the production process in terms of speed, quality and cost. 
To achieve this you will need to expand the company's current Continuous Improvement plan using lean manufacturing techniques (such as 5S, SMED, OEE and TPM) and training staff in the correct application of these tools. 

The Candidate 
The ideal candidate will be qualified to minimum HND level in an engineering discipline but, more importantly, will have a proven track record in leading manufacturing operations within a manufacturing environment. 
A strong, hands-on, manager with excellent people skills, you will also be responsible for developing the operational staff, assessing training needs and developing a multi-skilled workforce. 
Other focuses for this role are the ability to work to tight deadlines, to influence others and have a flexible response to the demands of the role. 

Kensington Consulting Ltd operates as a Recruitment / Employment Agency for the provision of permanent candidates and as a Recruitment / Employment Business for the provision of temporary candidates.
