Production Director in Burton upon Trent, Staffordshire, United Kingdom

A Production Director with ambition to one day become MD? Ford & Stanley Executive Search have been entrusted by our client to select and appoint a Production Director ready for the new year (ideally sooner…)

The Opportunity

Currently experiencing the highest ever levels of production in their established history of manufacture and sat at maximum capacity across the facilities, there is work to be done! this role is not to be taken lightly. There will be some that may shy away from such a challenge (rightly so?) and there will be a select few already asking ‘where do I sign’ – I am looking to speak to the latter.

Reporting directly into the MD and initially working alongside/in partnership with a highly experienced interim PD, you will take responsibility how the business is ultimately going to achieve delivery times scales, improve quality, drive supplier performance and control cost.

You will ideally have managed 200+ people as a minimum in a manufacturing or production environment with a proven track record of success / examples of turnaround. You may be a Senior Production Manager ready for a step up, an experienced production director in a smaller business ready for ‘the big move’ or a Manufacturing Director looking for a new challenge and better prospects, albeit a sideways step.

This is an executive level position but requires individuals who work/communicate well from the shop floor to boardroom identifying gaps, ensuring buy in, engagement from their reports, spotting blockages and opportunities for improvement.
