Production Planner required for maternity cover on a minimum of a years rolling contract with the potential to move into a permanent role. You will secure a role with a well-established, secure and successful manufacturer who supply their range of products to a global market.

You must ensure availability of staff and raw material in line with the production targets and reduce overstock where possible. You will be involved with weekly schedule review meetings to agree forward plans, review forecasts, NPD, promotions and discontinuations.

*Creating a production schedule 4-6 weeks in advance
