Production Process Manager

Recruiter: Jonathan Lee Recruitment
Location: Oxford
Salary: £45,000 - £50,000
Application date: 20th Aug 2019

A Production Process Manager is required for this innovative start-up business that is involved in the manufacture of a range of novel high precision miniature products. These CE certified products are patent protected and have passed type approval. The challenge now is to move into volume production and establish a stable, capable and repeatable manufacturing process that can produce products of the highest quality meeting tight tolerances in a near clean room environment. As a Production Process Manager, you will have an in-depth understanding of precision surface grinding of thin gauge sheet metal components. The job would ideally suit someone with a precision engineering background, apprentice trained who has a strong background in machining process development

To be considered for this Production Process Manager you must have or be:

Experience working in a high-volume precision machining environment and be familiar with CNC grinding technology and the development of production processes.
A strong manufacturing/production background ideally supported by qualifications to C&G, HNC, HND or degree level in production, manufacturing or mechanical engineering.
A real passion for Continuous Improvement and implementing simple, meaningful and effective KPIs.
An ability to coach, train and educate employees in modern machining techniques.
Able to work with universities and machine tool suppliers to develop a stable process and select the most capable machine tools and high-speed tooling.
Excellent communication skills, verbal, written and presentation, able to document, plan and develop standard operating procedures for high precision processes.

This is a very interesting position that will involve research and development into precision CNC surface and profile grinding. The role is a permanent position and would ideally suit an engineer out of work, looking for an interesting challenge. A retired or semi-retired engineer capable of working 3 days a week would also be considered. A precision engineering background and knowledge of grinding and machining processes are essential for this position.
