"Great things never came from comfort zones".
I've no idea who first said that, but it's a brilliant quote and one that sums this role up perfectly.
As an experienced production manager, you'll know that to improve a production operation, people will need to change their outlook and take those first steps out of their comfort zone.
That's where my client is now. They are a well established manufacturing company with a well-established culture, but it needs to change.
That's where you come in.
You'll need to bring your negotiation and diplomacy skills to the front to show people what "great" can look like and how they can get there.
There will be challenges, as there always are when trying to change an organisation's culture, but your process manufacturing background and determination to succeed will help you overcome any resistance to change.
The company is in an excellent position with a strong order book and an impressive level of OTIF and quality measures, but they know it can be better so there will be plenty of opportunities for you to make significant improvements.
Although your character and experience will be critical factors in this role, there are some minimum entry requirements. You will need to be degree qualified in a chemical or engineering discipline and have an excellent knowledge of implementing lean and/or six sigma methodologies.
So if you're looking for a new challenge, don't worry if your CV isn't up to date but please contact me on 01257 244740 for a confidential chat.
