The Role:

As Head of Manufacturing, you will be critical to leading and driving improvements to the facility that will contribute to the on-time delivery of the manufacturing phase of projects. This will not only ensure the overall project timescales are maintained, but will consistently offer a "best-in-class" service to customers. Not only is this a very "hands-on" role where from time to time you will be required to roll up your sleeves and get stuck in, but you will also be directly responsible for the strategic and operational capability of the facility for many years to come.

This person is a critical piece in the future success of the organisation, therefore a proven track-record of delivering improvements in cost, on-time and quality delivery is key, alongside the following:

• Knowledge and experience within fabrication, machining and assembly for highly bespoke capital equipment.

• Experienced in the implementation of 5S, Lean and TQM in order to improve a manufacturing facility.

• Strong leadership capabilities, with the willingness to take a hands-on approach where necessary.
