I am currently in the market seeking a Deputy Chief Operations Officer in the South Yorkshire area for a global manufacturer of workwear and safety wear. The role will require someone that is very analytically minded that can bring change management and process improvement experience from multi-medium size businesses. Continuous improvement will be a very strong aspect of the role along with value stream mapping and standard minute values. Someone that comes from a textiles background and/or has experience implementing automation and managing from cradle to grave would be highly desirable. The key focus of the role will be to act as the number two to the Chief Operations Officer in all aspects of manufacturing management and planning in conjunction with the Supply Chain team, work-study of current operational activities and development of continuous improvement plans and implementation of the same.
Travel to other sites globally will be required as and when needed.
