Redfin Recruitment is working in partnership with a US headquartered international continuous improvement and quality management solutions provider who is revolutionising the way small to mid-tiered food manufacturing operations handle its OEE and productivity strategies.

Their Story:

Our client has worked together for over a decade and have overseen implementations of solutions in over a thousand plants worldwide, from MES and OEE to Quality and Maintenance Management systems.  

All this time they have watched as mid-sized manufacturing plants were left out in the cold: either ignored or badly served by vendors where technology installations were too expensive and continuous improvement consulting fees prohibitive. This left behind a vacuum of complexity, instead of skills transference and productivity. Although these organizations continue to gain the most from operational excellence they need a lighter-touch, one that is focused on results and savings rather than infrastructure and cost.  

Our client has taken the best operational excellence and plant floor technology techniques of fortune 500 manufacturers and launched a simple, transformational service which is a hybrid of mobile technology and continuous improvement services.  

Basics of the role:

- Need a highly adaptive and fast paced individual  

- A great facilitator, able to speak to both the shop floor and senior leaders  

- A background in food, beverage or CPG manufacturing

- Experience in leading operations teams within a plant environment  

- Pleased to be in a different plant each week, sharing the recipe with each management team

- Ability to prioritize and manage separate streams of activity  

- A team player, interfacing with everyone across the business  

- 80% travel required

- Lead, coach, mentor and facilitate exceptional Continuous Improvement strategies in line with the business and client strategies

This position will see you travelling frequently throughout the domestic US in order to provide exceptional continuous improvement coaching within a wide range of F&B product categories.  

As a home or remote based role, you will have excellent self-management, motivation and organisational qualities. You will also have a naturally energetic, enthusiastic and engaging personality. 

If you have a passion for food, beverage or CPG plant-based manufacturing and have led and coached teams of operators we want to hear from you.
