Our client is an innovative food manufacturer who supply to some of the countries leading companies. They are now looking to recruit an experienced Production Planner to be part of their operation and assist in driving the business forward.

Working within the Supply Chain function you will firstly look at historical data to create a demand plan and then use this information along with other operational information to start to form a Production Plan for the business. You will create planning schedules for factory based on current stock levels and customer orders - you will need to not only be flexible in your approach to planning but also be a real champion of customer service. The main complexities around the plan are caused by equipment and possible cross contamination issues regarding products with vastly different flavor profiles. Your objective is to ensure that service levels to your customers are consistently at 100%. You will achieve this by taking a really proactive and strategic approach to any production issues to ensure they do not impact delivery. Communication will contribute massively to the success of this position as you will need to work closely with both internal and external customers

To be successful in this role you must have experience of scheduling in a food manufacturing organization and you should have an excellent understanding of stock control. With a sound working knowledge of the entire manufacturing process you must be a character who can really embrace and implement change.
