Production Planner

Job Description

A fantastic opportunity has arisen for an experienced Production Planner to join an established and expanding business in the Leicester area who are specialist suppliers and manufacturers of precision engineering components. You will join a friendly, dynamic and close-knit team on a permanent basis, working Mon to Fri 7.30am - 4pm.

Reporting directly into the Production Manager, you will organise production to exacting demand and quality standards, ensuring components are produced on-time and in a profitable manner. You will determine the correct level of man-power, equipment and raw materials required to cover production demand. Following training, this will also include the purchase of raw materials, coordinating production work-flow, liaison with the production supervisor and communication with the company's clients. You will be responsible for managing the production schedule and regularly updating this to reflect changes in demand and priorities to ensure the flow of work remains smooth and efficient. You will monitor jobs to ensure they are completed on time, preparing and submitting status and performance reports and collaborating with quality control and warehousing personnel.

To be successful you will be results driven, and very well versed in production procedures (ideally from an engineering production background). You will be very well organised, possess excellent communication skills and be computer literate (it is important that you have strong Excel skills). You will have good administration skills and be confident in dealing with your clients' requirements where a positive, can-do attitude to deliver to their requirements, is essential.

This is a busy, fast paced, but friendly environment where you will achieve your results from being hands-on, passionate and goal focused.
