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.
