The ideal candidate

  • This is a broad and dynamic role which would particularly suit a manufacturing professional who wishes to widen their experience by developing a thorough understanding of logistics.

  • The successful candidate will need to demonstrate that they are fully-engaged with the principles and tools of TPM and ISO9001.
  • Someone who expects high standards from themselves and their team, but also demonstrates an understanding that people deliver their best in an environment of trust and mutual respect.

  • Comfortable working in a flat, non-hierarchical team environment.
  • Ex-military engineering/logistics staff could also be a good fit for this role and allowances can be made if this means direct manufacturing experience is limited.
