CI Manager, Lincolnshire
Location: East Midlands
County / State: Lincolnshire
Job type: Permanent
Consultant: Dominic Cooke
Start date: Asap
Salary: £50,000 - £60,000 per annum plus Car
Eager workforce looking for a Lean expert to show them the way. Do a good job and you get to be the face of CI for this customer across the group.
Have you ever caught yourself thinking 'I have the blueprint for a near perfect Lean plan' but are working in an organisation that doesn't allow it, either through red tape or it's the wrong time? This role will address both points, the company are just at the beginning of their Lean journey and with the support of their major customer and workforce have decided to recruit a dedicated CI Manager.
Therefore they have created this CI Manager / Lean Co-ordinator role and you will work closely with the Manufacturing Manager and wider operations team to start the business on its lean journey. Although there are recognised pockets of lean within the business, they are looking for someone to really formalise this process and ensure efficiencies are driven throughout the business. Therefore this is a fantastic opportunity for a knowledgeable individual to come into a supportive business that is open to change and lay the groundwork for a successful Lean transformation.
This is a business that has received £multi-million investment over the last few years with additional capital being spent in 2016, so it is a positive time to be joining this business. As standards are high in other areas of the business, you will need to ensure they are in CI/Lean as well, so you will have a recognised qualification in Lean. People are a vital part of this business therefore you will need a demonstrable track record of Lean across both automated and labour intensive environments.
Knowledge of Lean tools 6 Sigma, 5S, Kaizen etc. will be important but more than that will be translating that across the workforce and gaining the buy-in for long-term success - "winning the league the first season is the easy bit, winning it the season after is the hard bit."
If this sounds good but you also are considering what is in the long-term (which to be fair, as a good CI Manager, this is likely in your thought process), there is the possibility of this role being the face of CI for the larger group in relation to this customer.
Relocation assistance may be provided for you if you are outside of commuting distance.
Please apply to this CI Manager role today if it is of interest.
