Planning Manager (Milton Keynes)

My client is a world leader in the delivery of high quality products to the research, semiconductor, life sciences, aerospace and food processing sectors.  

Their products enable science to change the world for the better. 

They enable innovation by bringing their expertise in vacuum science, ultrapure and ultra-hygienic materials fabrication, ceramic-to-metal sealing along with their design and manufacturing partnerships.

Their vision is to create innovative solutions that enable their customer’s dreams to become products that improve society. 

In order to continue delivering quality products and service globally they want to grow their Team with an experienced Planning Manager.

Reporting directly to the COO this role will lead, plan and prepare production schedules for the manufacture of components using all data sources, according to demand and quality standards. It will compile information and records to prepare purchase orders for procurement of raw material, goods or services to support manufacturing, maintenance or sales activities.

The successful candidate will have a degree in engineering, business management or similar or a combination of education and related work experience (7+ years).  An in depth knowledge of ERP/MRP manufacturing software systems (preferably Microsoft AX) and spreadsheet application is also a requirement.

The opportunity provides significant potential for personal growth eg participation in an ERP upgrade, and the scope to bring your own strategies to bear across a resurging Vacuum Products Division. Part of the role will be deciding how to build standard products alongside custom work.

In the longer term this role will grow to lead the planning team across 3 distinct global locations, so be prepared for some limited travel.

If this role sounds interesting and you have the right mix of resilience and proactivity with a solutions focus please get in touch with Myles McKeown for a conversation with further detail.
