Shift Manager

c£50k base + shift premiums + significant benefits package (36 days holiday, car lease scheme)

Location: Northampton


Driving productivity, efficiency and quality at this global leader in automotive and motorsport technology you will use your extensive operational management experience to uphold a culture of excellence.

With a particular focus on manufacturing you will also take accountability for the assembly, build and test departments during evening, night and weekend shifts to ensure consistency across the 24/7 operation.

This role is not for the faint hearted; it will involve difficult decisions, complete flexibility and you will be responsible for establishing the culture, changing behaviours and identifying opportunity to improve.

However, in return you will be working in a state of the art facility, working on a world’s first project with some of the most skilled engineers in the industry.



You will bring with you a developed skillset and capability to lead diverse teams. Previously you will have held operational responsibility as Shift Manager and demonstrated significant improvements holding accountability for people, process, output and health and safety.  

Ideally having experience within the automotive manufacturing or assembly environment you will know how to maximise output, and get the best out of people. You will have familiarity with the challenges in this environment and have deft decision making.

It goes without saying that your communication and relationship building skills will be exemplary and you will be operating in an environment whereby you are empowered to act autonomously.

There are 2 positions available across both evening and night shifts with premiums attached and overall a significant package working at the forefront of performance automotive technology.
