Our client is a global exporter and leader in the animal feed and animal nutrition industry and a quality supplier of high-performance feed products. They are seeking a Senior Manufacturing Engineer to be located at their feed mill in the South of Ireland.
In this challenging “hybrid” role two separate but interrelated specializations have been brought together to create a very interesting opportunity: namely design engineering and lean manufacturing. The position is stand-alone reporting into the Operations Manager and working closely with all relevant staff and management to successfully achieve targeted outcomes. It is ‘an influence and collaboration’ role, leading from the front and enlisting required support internally to implement technical change and innovation.
Due to the specialist nature if this industry and its inherent nuances the ideal candidate will have extensive experience in milling or related areas. The role will involve the continuous assessment of manufacturing systems and work to develop and implement viable engineering improvements to drive efficiencies within the manufacturing processes. It is a stand-alone role but it will link closely with the Maintenance Manager and Maintenance, Production and Operations departments.
The expectation is that the successful candidate will most likely have a degree in engineering but regardless of actual qualifications an impressive and relevant track record of engineering design and lean manufacturing achievement in a relevant environment is paramount. A minimum of five years’ work experience is most likely required to be able to deliver to role expectations. A strong ability to communicate, influence and build internal relationships is also critical
Remuneration is attractive while commensurate with experience. It includes a bonus and wider package.
