Role: Head of IT (Manufacturing)
Location: SE London and Surrey
Salary: £80-120K + bens (dependent on experience)
Our client, a well known British brand, are opening a new manufacturing site and they need to find a person with manufacturing experience to lead the business through the specifications, design & implementation of this exciting new site. You will have to be a bit of a "jack of all trades" and mini CIO for the new business, you will need to work with both internal and external consultancies and suppliers to design and specify the solutions, lead and implement the solutions, then probably transition in to the on-going operational and continuous improvement of the site. This will be a highly embedded role into the business, so whilst reporting into IT, probably 2/3rds of your time will be spent with the business (currently based in Greenwich, then at the factory near Kent from 2019), the remaining 1/3rd will be with the IT function in Surrey.
The company has 150 people in IT that is centralised in Surrey, this role will ONLY suit someone from a manufacturing background who has worked on a plant as it is a greenfield site, this said it is the perfect opportunity to make your mark and be affiliated with this NEW product.
