  • Attend daily/weekly and monthly customer meetings presenting process performance and material data as required, and conduct internal process management meetings.

  • Carry out any reasonable request as directed by the leadership teams during the course of your duties.
  • The right person will be dependable, conscientious and able to make decisions and act unsupervised to ensure process continuity.

To do this job, you must be highly motivated, self-confident and able to work under pressure in a world class manufacturing environment. You will need to be a team player but also able to work unsupervised to meet and exceed customer requirements as a key front line representative on the customer site.
