Job of the Week!

My client is a success story to be applauded; having weathered the bad times in the last couple of years by taking tough decisions and diversifying, they are now well placed to take full advantage of recovering markets and their loyal customer base. To enable this to happen, they are now seeking to appoint an experienced, dynamic technical sales engineer to a new role covering a number of areas – account management of the existing UK client base, maximising revenue and exploring add-on sales avenues and also proactively seeking out business development opportunities. You will need to demonstrate a proven track record of success within a similar mechanical engineering environment, preferably currently dealing across the same sectors (automotive, MOD etc). This is not your run of the mill technical sales role – the business is keen to reward success both financially and in terms of career progression, and the stable platform that the company currently enjoys is the perfect springboard to this success, but you must be prepared for significant UK wide travel.

Maintenance Manager – Cheshire – £35,000pa

My client is a real success story in the making, reversing the trend for overseas manufacture and heavily committed to their workforce in Britain. With a growing UK market and exciting international sales opportunities, they have the potential for significant expansion within a very short period of time. To support these realistic and attainable growth plans, they are seeking to appoint an experienced maintenance manager to a role working hand-in-hand with the production managers and the other members of the senior team to ensure the manufacturing function is able to support the rest of the business activities. Although you may not previously have been a manager, the ideal candidate will have had significant man-management experience, not just in getting the best out of a collection of individuals, but also in terms of planning, scheduling and encouraging flexibility to problem solving. You will have had experience of both planned and reactive maintenance, with up to date knowledge of health and safety regulations and best practice (5S, Kaizen, Lean etc). The icing on the cake would be experience within a traditional, labour intensive manufacturing environment, but the key attributes sought are that you are hard working, a team player who can see the bigger picture and the impact of your team on the wider business, and a desire to be part of a genuine British manufacturing success story.
