Devon / circa £120k + benefits + bonus
This outstanding engineering business has a strong order book, profitable, and is poised for further growth both in terms of products and new sectors. Due to restructuring, the Chairman now seeks to appoint an experienced production engineer as MD.
The role will cover every aspect of the company but there are a number of critical areas. Due to client demand there will be a significant growth in turnover over the next few years, which will require investment in capital equipment and either expansion or redeployment of factory space. This will require changes to manufacturing processes and scheduling and therefore a requirement for experience of pragmatic lean manufacturing processes. In addition this role will require an individual who can be hands-on when required with both key clients and suppliers.
Candidates should be engineers with significant experience of production as well as general management. You must be a team builder as well as a team leader, happy to interact with an excellent design team as well as a motivated shop floor. In essence, you must be a pragmatic production engineer with excellent interpersonal skills and a real desire to make a difference as the company undergo a period of growth.
