I am working closely with my global client to recruit a Production Controller with a supply chain background to work at their busy manufacturing plant in Royston, Hertfordshire. The main purpose of this role is to deliver outstanding customer service (for both internal and external customers) by facilitating and driving through supply chain business improvements and efficiencies. The emphasis for the successful candidate is on excellent organisational and planning skills within a production manufacturing environment in order to optimise stock control efficiencies by reducing volumes of materials held within the inventory whilst ensuring sufficient materials are available when required so as not to impact on production or product quality. Applications are invited from experienced Production Controllers, Production Planners, Stock Controllers, Supply Chain practitioners, or similar individuals who have worked in high volume, process driven environments (i.e. chemical, food, agro-chemical, automotive, pharmaceutical, refining, or similar). This is a challenging role; the successful applicant will be flexible, determined and self-motivated, with experience of working in a production planning environment and successfully implementing new processes. Previous experience of Lean Manufacturing, Continuous Improvement, and handling budgets are all highly desirable. Candidates must have excellent IT skills and previous experience of using ERP business systems, ideally SAP, will be advantageous but not necessary. Candidates will also have to be able to demonstrate experience and knowledge of Supply Chain processes, ISO9001 and ISO18001. A formal qualification in production / manufacturing / supply chain would be very beneficial. This role is an excellent opportunity for someone to make a real impact and take ownership of the direction of the department within a highly respected global company.
