Production Planning Manager
MCS Group is delighted to be recruiting an experienced Planning Manager to join our client’s Production planning department in one of Ireland’s well known and market leading food companies located in County Monaghan.
As Production Planning Manager you will provide leadership and direction, you will be responsible for planning and preparing production schedules and agreeing delivery times with suppliers to ensure the product is available and meets production requirements thus maximizing efficiency across intake. There is a need to forecast plans, ensuring an accurate and detailed plan is in place at least one month in advance – liaising with marketing and sales on promotional activities and taking these factors into account.
You will be responsible for ensuring there is enough plant capacity and a team of people ready to prepare products, working closely with the relevant supervisors and management to determine the status of assigned plans.
You will be aware of any issues which slow down production and encourage operatives to report any snags. It is your responsibility to then bring these to the attention of maintenance and ensure continuous improvements are ongoing.
You will liaise across departments and hierarchies to keep up to date and to gather information on sales forecasts. There is a need to build strong relationships with the procurement manager and technical department on supplier non-conformance to specifications which will cause production deviations from original plans.
You will need:
- Planning experience within a FMCG environment
- Experience with systems such as SAP or Macro
- Strong communication skills and attention to detail
- Results orientated, with a drive to work towards time scales
