Job description

Production Planner – Engineering
Lincoln – 5 days onsite
£45k DOE

Are you an experienced Production Planner? Do you enjoy working autonomously and driving supply chain improvement?

We’re supporting an engineering business in Lincoln to recruit a Production Planner to join their close-knit team. This is a stand-alone position, so you’ll need to be confident in hitting the ground running.

That being said, you’ll have a good support system around you to help get you up to speed.

Salary & benefits
Circa £45k DOE
Role overview
Day to day you’ll be responsible for:  
  • Collaborating with cross-functional teams to develop and implement production schedules that meet demand.
  • Monitoring inventory levels and coordinate with procurement to ensure timely availability of materials.
  • Analysing production data to identify areas for improvement and implement strategies to enhance productivity and efficiency.
  • Actively participating in production meetings, providing insights and recommendations to optimize workflow and meet production targets.
About you
You’ll need to have a strong working knowledge of MS Excel. Experience using ERP/MRP systems will also be needed.

So, if you’re an experienced Production Planner with a background in heavy engineering/manufacturing, we’d love to hear from you.

To find out more, please apply via this ad. If you’d rather have an initial chat first, that’s fine – contact Chris Adams at Distinct Recruitment.

We look forward to hearing from you.
