Vacancy Detail

Production Manager

This is an opportunity to join an award-winning print business as their Production Manager. 

You're coming in as a senior member of the business. With that, your experience of Large Format Print needs to be second to none. You'll be leading a team and department so you need to know what you are doing. 

You know, the role will require lots of different hats to be worn, sometimes all at once. Not all Production Manager positions are the same but for this one, you'll be overseeing a team of 8 - 10 print operators, print finishers and an external network of installers. Away from people management, you'll oversee production scheduling, stock management, planning, supplier management and sub-contract installation management. 

Communication is imperative on this opportunity. You'll be integral to all other departments. Your communication is vital in the process, the streamlining, the workflow from start to finish. You communication for example to Client Services or Studio is super important as that has such a knock-on effect to the project you are working on. So you've got to be clear, concise and approachable! 

You'll be coming into this from being hands on from the production floor. Perhaps you've been a shift or team lead looking for that next step but you will have to come from a Large Format Printing background. You'll need that, to hit the ground running, to get to grips with the new place as quickly as possible. 

Knowledge on substrates, printers, and suppliers are all important but what we'd also like you to show us is Continuous Improvement, quality control, lean management, supplier management and people management skills. Both of these are just as important as each other so examples of both are what we are looking.  

This place is exceptional. Everyone is lovely, get's on really well and the business is all aligned to being one of the leading names within the Large Format industry. Longevity within the business is strong, the opportunity to progress is second to none and from its solid foundations, 2023 and beyond is going to be all about growth. New sectors, new kit, new employees. All very exciting. 

So if you're experienced in print production and have been in a lead or supervisory position or you might currently be a Production Manager looking for a new home, get in touch, this is a very good time to be joining the business and we'd love to hear from you. 

If this is something you are interested in and would like more information on, then please get in touch. You don't have to have an up-to-date CV, so feel free to get in touch by phone, email or carrier pigeon. Happy to answer any questions you may have about this opportunity.
