Job Description

A food factory can only run as well as its planning team allows it to. You’re the central hub of everything good that happens.

The operations team rely on you and so do the customers. They need their daily fix and if you don’t get things right, the supermarket shelves could be out of their favourite products.

We’ve got a role available as a senior planner. This is only available because of an internal promotion.

  • This is a medium-sized business. This brings its own challenges and opportunities. It won’t be for everyone but it’s fast-paced and complex and that can be genuinely fun
  • You’d be joining a business that plays an important role in the local community
  • As a business they’re launching loads of new products with their key customers
  • The company has a history of developing internally, including putting people through extra qualifications


What you’ll be doing

  • In short, making sure the factory has the things it needs to produce what it needs to
  • Ordering raw materials
  • Planning production runs so the factory runs as efficiently as possible


The company

  • Fast paced food manufacturing business
  • Great relationships with key customers
  • Extremely profitable
