Technical Manager

£75k - 80k plus benefits


The Technical Manager role on this site is central to the senior leadership team and to the retail customers. We are looking for a Technical expert, someone who has developed their knowledge during their technical career in the food industry, who can lead their function and drive effective communication within their own team, operations and supply chain.

Why this role?

With full autonomy for the site Technical plan and developing the Technical and Quality structure, the opportunity to deliver change and make your mark is evident. As a member of the Senior Leadership Team and working with the site director closely, there is a real 'one team' culture. A business with a good facility and excellent infrastructure removes a lot of the day-to-day issues most Technical Managers will face. Customer facing, this leadership role needs a communicator who can build those key relationships with integrity and confidence. Additionally, there will be multiple projects allowing for broadening experience and additional self-development.

More about the business:

The team culture cascades from the Site Director into every area.
Quality is evident when you walk round this factory and is central to the site.
A well invested facility with further development in the future.
Due to a constant strive for quality and business excellence there are endless Continuous Improvement projects underway.
Growth from exceptional innovation and a strong pipeline across their product range is excellent news in the current market.

The site needs a Technical Manager who can:

Lead, manage and develop the Technical team.
Be proactive and involved to drive the technical agenda.
Drive a continuous team approach with all departments.
Be an active manager to work wider than the Technical function.
Work with customers establishing a strong communication platform for technical and the business.
Develop a learning culture for technical and the wider teams.
To be the expert for all Food safety matters.

For this role, your background needs to cover:

Technical Management experience in the food industry is essential.
Proven achievements in improving technical manufacturing processes.
An ability to develop people and teams through effective leadership.
Experience in working with the major UK retailers in complex, fast paced environments.
Able to communicate technical processes to different audiences.
Proven success in gaining buy-in from all stake holders at every level.

As mentioned above, this opportunity allows you to have autonomy and develop your Technical plan for a Food Manufacturing business who have a successful past and realistic plans for the future. Are you the next member of their progressive Senior Leadership Team?
