About the role

A greener, more environmentally-friendly UK is possible – and we’re making it happen.

What will I be doing?

What will I be doing as a Production Shift Manager?

This is your chance to run shifts at our mixed recycling facility (MRF). You’ll work with other members of the Processing team to maximise potential revenue from a varied feedstock and customer base, while achieving a very high quality and tightly specified product.  To succeed, you must have acute awareness of production quality plus the ability to judge and act on any issues that arise. You’ll also be expected to keep accurate records, help plan maintenance and ensure the plant runs in a safe, efficient way, in line with statutory regulations and Health & Safety legislation. Please note: you’ll be the main contact for out-of-hours operations. 

What are the requirements?

What are the requirements? (Experience and qualifications)

Having managed a team in a production processing plant before, you’ll already have what it takes. You can lead people, deliver against KPIs and work safely in a demanding processing environment. Underpinning this expertise will be qualifications in Engineering or Manufacturing (or equivalent experience) and ideally Health & Safety (e.g. IOSH) with an awareness of manufacturing techniques including lean (Six Sigma) and continuous improvement. You’ll be a skilled manager and qualified first aider with the drive to gain a COTC/WAMITAB qualification in 12 months (if you don’t have this already). If you can also boast strong communication skills and the determination to excel, we’d definitely like to hear from you.

10% shift allowance if on rotating days or 20% if on nights
