MfgPro Support Manager, West Midlands, c£45,000pa + benefits

Job of the week!

My client is a major manufacturing success story, with a strong order book, exclusively blue chip customer base and a history of investing not only in plant and machinery, but also in their staff. As part of their corporate strategy for the next five years of growth, they have created a new role within the IT function that will concentrate exclusively on MfgPro, leaving the mundane hardware and internal support services to a separate department. They are now seeking to appoint an experienced MfgPro professional to specifically manage all aspects of the MfgPro system, ensuring that its operational capability is optimised and that the systems support the planned growth and customer interface for which it is rightly lauded. To that end, the role would probably best suit an MfgPro specialist currently working in a consultancy or self-employed capacity who is looking to utilise his skills whilst enjoying the same degree of autonomy but benefiting from increased employment security and prospects than you might other wise get. You must be articulate and ambitious, with an ability to grasp the wider business picture rather than just technical issues, the personality and communication skills to understand requirements and transmit ideas across a wide range of technical competencies, and a proven pedigree of working with MfgPro within a world class manufacturing or engineering environment. This is not some of “mushroom” role, stuck in a windowless office with little interaction; this opportunity is a vital part of my client’s intention to make the business as efficient and effective as possible, ensuring maximum external customer satisfaction and securing the long term future of the company.

A welcome return for Job of the Week!

My client is on the cusp of a massive expansion programme. Having cleverly and carefully established a reputation for quality and customer service, they are now about to launch a number of cutting edge products onto the market, all of which are light years ahead of those their competitors can offer. Having spent a significant period of time and money addressing their branding, traditional marketing and web presence, they are now looking to recruit a digital communications specialist to take this message to the marketplace. They are not looking for a website designer, but instead someone with a proven track record of engaging with new and existing customers across the full range of digital media, whether that is social media, web campaigns or via an innovative use of e-mails. We are looking to speak to creative individuals who can demonstrate success in translating senior management’s ideas into proven business generators, and can give plenty of examples of how their creative digital marketing projects have directly influenced the lead generation and sales performance of the business. This experience may have been gained either in-house or on an agency basis, but it is crucial that your efforts have directly influenced the sales pipeline. It is not too strong to suggest that this role is key to the expansion of the business as the directors wish, and in return they will offer complete autonomy, in addition to a planned career path that will quickly involve staff management.
