Are you looking for a fresh start in 2020? I've been tasked by my client to recruit a Production Planner to join their team onsite and be heavily involved in making a difference to how their batch production schedules are adhered to and allocated correctly.

I'm currently recruiting for a privately-owned, precision manufacturing business with a rich history and an exciting future, based in Marston Green in Birmingham. A small-batch manufacturer of a market-leading range of products, this family-owned business has appointed a Managing Director from an external pool of candidates and tasked him with reorganising, reenergising and growing their historically successful business, bringing modern and innovative thinking in order to take it into the next phase of its history.

As the new Production Planner, you would have a background within batch production manufacturing organisations - you will need an analytical mindset to succeed here due to the dynamic and reactive nature of production onsite. With no two days being the same you will enjoy working in a fast-paced, dynamic environment where the plan is critical to meet customer orders. To succeed within the role, you will need to be good with numbers and interpreting data as production plans can be subject to change at short notice.

The company are looking for an individual who takes pride in their work and who really cares about making a difference within the organisation. If you are looking to apply here then you will need a background from within batch manufacturing to understand the complexities of the role, this experience will be critical to understand the dynamic nature onsite. For the right candidate there is definitely future progression within the company…

The successful candidate will receive a salary of £30,00 to £35,000 plus benefits. Please apply with your CV, or for additional information or a confidential discussion, please call Phil Birch on 07970 211517.
