Job Description

If people were asked to describe you what would they say?

Intelligent?

Quick thinking?

A whizz with computers?

Loves fast moving environments?

Hates being bored?

Well, on the off chance that your career is currently in Production Planning then we would love to hear from you!

We are recruiting for a Production Planner and this is a very fast-paced role; working at the hub of manufacturing. It is down to the Planning team to ensure that every single minute of the 24 hour, 7 days a week operation is utilised to its full capacity. Efficiencies are at the forefront of every action and this is your forte.

You are an excellent user of Excel. Pivot tables and look ups are second nature and a key part of your current day.

You love the challenge of making all the production run plans, taking in to account raw material availability, order changes, etc. to ensure that there is minimal waste at the end of each and every day. As the headline says - you are no stranger to thinking on your feet and playing with figures to get the best fit.

You will ideally have been in a Production Planning role within an FMCG environment so that we can see that you have experience of fast pace. This role is based in a food manufacturing environment, so the necessity for quick thinking is very real. (Plus, if you like food then the staff shop is a massive perk to this job!).

So, if you are at a point in your career where you are ready to take on new challenges, or if you simply fancy a change, then this could be for you. Send in your CV and let's talk!
