Would you like the opportunity to be one of the key decision makers in a growing business? Does the thought of recruiting your own team, choosing the products that are produced and have autonomy as well as full responsibility for operations on site excite you? If so, we want to hear from you!

We are currently recruiting for an exciting opportunity for the right production professional whose ambition and drive will continue the upwards momentum through the exciting period of change on site.

As the successful candidate, an example of your day to day responsibilities will include but not be limited to:

*Taking a pro-active approach in ensuring standards are met in line with the Health & Safety policy
*Develop, coach and manage the performance of your team alongside continuous training
*Liaise effectively with other teams within the business
