Production Operations Manager (WJFRP81527)
Who are we?
A pioneer of organic home delivery, Abel & Cole is a brand famous for seasonal organic fruit & veg. Since 1988 we’ve built close relationships with other brilliant organic pioneers in order to deliver a wide range of fantastic organic food to people’s homes across much of England. We represent a refreshing alternative to supermarket shopping, but without being worthy or preachy. No air freight, no silly packaging, no nasty chemicals – just great food produced by people who really love what they do. We deliver to around 40,000 households and we employ nearly 600 great people. We consider ourselves bold, irreverent, genuine, friendly and honest, and it is crucial that this comes across in everything we do.
Reporting to the Head of Operations you will be responsible for all of the production from our sites here in Andover. Currently we have four production lines dealing with fresh produce, chilled goods, ambient products and recipe boxes. We have some big goals here at Abel & Cole for our production and are looking for an experienced leader to come in and help our extremely talented team from ideation to execution of fresh and innovative ideas to help drive our productivity. We do things a little differently here at Abel & Cole and we are ideally looking for someone who has a measurable track record of providing bespoke solutions.
Mentoring and development will be key in this role alongside coaching for success and getting results through others. This role will be fast paced with multiple projects ongoing at any one time; to help you succeed you will find we are big on communication and collaboration with dedicated employees across the organisation. You will work closely with all stakeholders on site in Andover as well as forging strong links with other areas of the business as we strive for safety, productivity, quality across all of our lines. We aren’t just looking for someone who can crunch the numbers – we are looking for someone who is passionate about people and getting the best from those around them.
