The ideal professional profile will be a paper production specialist currently working at a paper mill with the technical expertise and management experience. Most likely therefore the new Production Manager will currently be working at a 24/7 paper mill in the position of:
- Production Manager

In addition the new Production Manager must be fluent in English and ideally will be experienced in working on big investment / project work.
