Jordans' Dorset Ryvita are looking for an experienced Engineering leader to come and lead the Biggleswade Engineering team and play an active role in the site senior leadership team, working collaboratively with other functional leads to achieve site objectives.
Leading the engineering function, you will develop and coach the site engineering team to deliver exceptional high performance across the engineering balanced scorecard - safety, technical, performance, cost and people. You will drive continuous improvement and ensure that compliance to standards is built upon and improved year on year.
We're looking for an inspiring engineering leader to 'take the reins' for 12 months, so you'll need to be willing and able to quickly get stuck in to the site and leading the team. Great communication and coaching skills are essential, as well as previous experience leading a manufacturing engineering team. You'll need to be able to motivate a diverse engineering team and work collaboratively across the site and the broader business to make things happen.
This is a brilliant opportunity to join a growing manufacturing site producing delicious cereals and cereal bars. JDR are part of the ABF group, a food business which continues to go from strength to strength. Sharing best practice across the wider group is commonplace, and has been proven to elevate careers beyond site level.
