  • Descripción de funciones:
    Our packing factory is the heart of our business and it relies on great people to make sure it runs safely and efficiently. We pack fruit for supermarkets and we’re really proud of the reputation we’ve built for maintaining high standards.
    Our Production Team Leaders make a big contribution to that reputation by taking responsibility for the management and performance of a designated fruit packing line. Quality standards and target work rates must be met, and customer orders must be completed on time and in full. You’ll need to train and manage your line’s team on the production procedures, working practices and company policies. You will also need to provide initial training and supervision for temporary staff. Communicating and enforcing our standards in health, safety and hygiene is also key.
    We’re looking for someone who’s really good with people and who values what learning and development will bring to their team’s performance. You’ll train and coach your team members to make sure they have the tools and skills to do their job effectively.
    Our Team Leaders need to communicate well with our management team too, making sure that relevant information is shared. Together we identify ways of minimising waste and making the most of our workforce, seeking change and improvement.

    • Willingness to take on new challenges
    • Enthusiasm, confidence and motivation
    • It would be great if you already have experience using an SAP production management system
