Nottingham - Permanent

Posted: 1 week ago

Ref: D0017862



When Production Planning is viewed as an integral part of the business, you’re on to a winner.


This Nottingham based manufacturer takes production planning seriously. They understand the key role it plays in impacting the customer perception of the brand, from product quality and new product launches, to on shelf availability.


They’re looking for a Production Planning Manager to lead factory planning for one of their major product streams.


With a team of 4 reporting in, it’s less about the granular day-to-day planning, and more about looking at medium to long term capacities, overall tie in to the S&OP process, and delivering a first-class planning function.


Their manufacturing operation is complex, and getting a right-first-time plan in place is key to ensuring minimal disruption to supply.


You’ll be an integral part in the S&OP process, championing the planning workstream. Systems and processes also need reviewing, with upgrades needed in some areas.


The business is mature and adopts a flexible approach to their working hours. It’s a Monday – Friday role working 37.5 hours per week. If you want to start and finish earlier – no problem.
