You will be directly managing 6 managers across: Production; Production Engineering; Logistics; Supply Chain. Indirectly you’ll be managing around 200 colleagues (with potential temp uplift to 250). You will be instrumental in supporting your teams as they embrace change and you will, alongside the Project Management Team, take ownership of certain high profile projects such as CAPEX spend.
