Chemical Plant Equipment and Process Manager

My client is a world class chemicals manufacturer providing solutions to customers around the world across a wide range of sectors. They are currently seeking to recruit a Plant Equipment and Process Manager at their busy Chemicals Manufacturing site in Norfolk. The purpose of this role is to take ownership of one or more manufacturing plants based across their site.

Applications are invited from Managers and Engineers who have held Continuous Improvement / Production / Process Improvement / Process Optimisation roles - ideally within a process-driven or hazardous production manufacturing environment such as agro-chemical, automotive, chemicals, food & beverage, pharmaceutical, pigments, resin, refinery, etc.

The successful applicant will have responsibility for managing, monitoring and continuously improving upon manufacturing plant performance, including:

  • Responsibility for developing a positive and proactive Environmental, Health and Safety culture throughout the team including ensuring compliance with all EHS procedures (including correct use of PPE, incident recording and quality standards are followed)
  • Promoting the use of LEAN methodologies within the team and co-ordinating the use of resources and fully utilise the skills within the team to meet operation and maintenance needs
  • Identify and implement improvement, cost saving and sustainable opportunities.
  • Building upon relationships with production staff (managers, team leaders and operatives) to facilitate both timely reporting of active issues and planning maintenance in order to reduce downtime of the plant
  • Lead team by example, demonstrating commitment and bringing about positive change
  • Cost & Delivery on time
  • Reliability of plant equipment and processes
  • Quality of product and effluent
  • Consumption of raw materials, utilities and energy

This is a challenging role; the successful applicant will need to be flexible, determined and self-motivated. Regular liaison with Production Management, internal departments, contractors and HR means good communication and people skills are essential. The role requires the ability to persuade others to support and adopt your ideas and changes within the plant without direct line management responsibility.
