Production Controller / Manager needed for hi-tech business, hands on with a small team £30-45k near Guildford
Your new company
Well established and highly successful within their specialist field, this hi-tech business is looking for a Production Manager / Controller to lead a small team. Days only. This role would be suitable for either an established Manager or Shift / Team Leader that is accustomed to taking responsibility.
Your new role
In this position you will plan production activities against the order book, ensuring that orders are turned around swiftly and Right First Time. The production process itself is not overly technical, anyone comfortable with Computers / IT Systems will be able to learn it, but a background in "clean" manufacturing (Computers / Electronics / Telecoms etc) is an advantage. You will ensure that orders are effectively prioritised and be happy to get hands on and help the small team process orders when necessary as volumes can fluctuate significantly. You will monitor inventory onsite and place orders with established suppliers as needed, and oversee the efficient dispatch of orders via carrier partners.
You will be comfortable liaising with senior management and also able to assess and improve processes to aid efficient delivery of objectives.
What you'll need to succeed
You will ideally have a background in a "clean" manufacturing environment (eg Computers / Electronics / Telecoms etc as above), although any sector can be considered. You will certainly have some team management experience and be happy to be hands on when needed, while controlling work flow and planning the activities of your team. Analytical / Excel skills are useful but not essential, but you must be happy making decisions and taking responsibility for the performance of your team.
What you'll get in return
Excellent salary and benefits including generous pension, healthcare etc, as well as ongoing career development opportunities within a stable and successful business.
