A progressive Production Manager is required for a Birmingham manufacturer who have remained busy & profitable throughout the last 6 months.

My client is a fast-paced manufacturing firm who have in fact seen a rise in demand during the last 6 months. One of my long-standing contacts has been promoted into a multi-site leadership role and is now looking for a second-in-command to lead the improvement of the Birmingham facility as part of its integration into the group.

The Production Manager will take day-to-day responsibility for a small factory that craves engaging leadership, consistent working structure and appropriate and effective use of KPIs & standard processes. You will be responsible for getting the manufacturing team bought in to the site's future, developing an understanding that successful change & integration will lead to investment, to growth, and to the long-term creation of jobs. In short - convince the team that change is a good thing!

You currently work in a fast-paced manufacturing environment and you know what good looks like, but you also have experience leading change and taking your team on a journey. You're an empathetic and emotionally intelligent leader, but you're also process-driven and good with data & KIPs. Asking a lot, aren't I...

The successful Production Manager will earn up to £48k on days, and if successful has the genuine opportunity to run the plant and lead future investment onsite.
