Job Type: Permanent

Salary: £80000 - £100000 / annually

As a Production Director / Manufacturing Manager are you looking for a new contract challenge? Can you implement change and increase performance for an SME manufacturer within a 3 month fixed term contract?
BASIC SALARY: £80,000 - £100,000 Pro Rata
LOCATION: Our manufacturing site is within commutable distance of Bolton, Wigan, Bury, Leigh, Chorley and Preston
JOB DESCRIPTION: Production Director / Manufacturing Manager
We require an experienced Production or Manufacturing Expert to help and guide us at our manufacturing facility in the North West.
This is a 3 Month FTC to support the owners and the current management team. We need you to review our operation, advise on changes and then assist us to implement them.
We are in a period of change and are seeing sharp growth but we need expert guidance to allow us to move forward and enhance productivity at our manufacturing site.
Our problem is that the company is set up for the production of high volume, high value roll goods. However, this does not suit our cool chain products which we have developed  for the Pharmaceutical and Perishable sectors globally, so new systems of working will need to be developed.
Our manufacturing site is unique in that it has been successfully run for many years by the management team without a Managing Director. The owners are involved in directing the business but are not on site.
KEY RESPONSIBILITIES: Manufacturing Manager / Production Director
During your 3-month contract, we ask you to:
· Advise us on how the company can maximise productivity within our current facility.  
· Provide guidance on licencing technology to third parties or establishing a second factory.
· Mentor the management team to help them adjust to these changes and provide guidance to the Directors on any structural changes that might be required.
PERSON SPECIFICATION: Production Director / Manufacturing Manager
The successful applicant must be from a manufacturing background at a senior level and will join us on a 3 Month FTC to initially investigate and appraise our small manufacturing facility (c40 staff) and then use their expertise to help the company increase capacity, either within our own factory or outside.
You will need to be an experienced General Manager, Manufacturing Manager, Production Director or have held a similar senior position in a manufacturing environment, ideally involved in making a variety of products.
Note this is a 3 Month FTC but flexibility is needed so you can "get the job done" before moving on to new ventures.
We are a leading brand in specialist insulation in the UK. In 2016 we launched a project to develop new products for a post-Brexit world. We now have distribution for cool chain transportation products for the Pharmaceutical and Perishable sectors globally.
