This is an exciting new opportunity to work for a fast-growing manufacturer of uPVC conservatories; d ue to continued year on year growth, the business needs a Resource Planning Manager to build and manage an efficient and effective Resource Planning Department. Initially, your job will be to assess the current position and prepare a plan for the creation and development of the resource planning department.

Establishing the number of new staff required and their specific skillsets. Preparing costs & timeframes. Once the plan has been agreed upon, the resource planning manager will take direct responsibility for its implementation.

It’s important to stress that whilst the resource planning manager must have relevant knowledge and experience of the types of software systems that are involved, this is not a role for a dedicated IT specialist;

You willbe a team leader, with the ability to build, manage and motivate a small team, whilst ensuring that your team becomes an effective part of the larger company team and develops sound working relationships with all other departments. Applicants with conservatory and/or window industry experience will be of particular interest; but applications from candidates with experience in light manufacturing processes, within other industries, are also very welcome.
