Leading manufacturer of Personal Protective Equipment based in South West Scotland.

Due to continued expansion of our new manufacturing facility in Dumfries we are excited to be recruiting for Production Supervisors to join our team.

Our Production facility operates on a 3 week rolling shift pattern of 6am to 2pm, 2pm to 10pm and 10pm to 6am Monday to Friday and as a supervisor you’ll need to be able to work these shifts.

When you join our team, you’ll be part of the production of both face masks and face shields and as our factory continues to grow, you’ll see our products and processes grow and develop too.

The Production Supervisors are responsible for the smooth running of all parts of the shift which consists of approximately 80 production operatives per shift.

If your application is successful, your main tasks will include:

  • Assigning tasks to the shift team members

  • Monitor employee work habits ensuring tasks are completed in a timely manner, achieving production targets and to our quality standards

  • Maintain daily schedules, employee shifts and time off requests

  • Managing the probation period and other performance reviews

  • Ensure good housekeeping and organising of the work area

  • Opening, locking up and security of the site

We’re looking for candidates who have previous experience as a shift supervisor in a high volume manufacturing environment and who demonstrate strong people management skills. 

We’d also like you to have a sound understanding of industrial safety standards, strong interpersonal skills and as a highly motivated individual, you’ll lead by example and you’ll be able to multitask dealing calmly with anything that comes your way whilst on shift.

We’re happy to talk about remuneration with you as we’ll tailor this to your overall skills and experience.
