Why work as part of our Engineering team?
At Burton’s, as we continue on our exciting journey, we are both proud and ambitious in our approach to ensuring we continue to bake fantastic biscuits. As we continue to grow, both in our volume of biscuits and our product range, a key contributory part of this success is ensuring the right transformation improvements are made at our Bakeries. We have some exciting new capital investment projects planned across our Llantarnam Bakery, where you will form a key lead and get to work alongside a great leadership team who are passionate about the transformation and future contribution this bakery will make, to help us achieve our goal as one team.
What does your typical day look like?
As you will be working cross functionally across a variety of different projects, it is safe to say no two days will ever be the same: one day you may be working with the senior leadership team to define and scope new capital projects; the next day you may be overseeing the live implementation of new equipment before finally working with the engineering team providing a working handover of new machinery for their ownership. You will also be ensuring there is clear communication across all teams on any updates and changes to live project plans.
What are the key ingredients needed for the role?
If you have previous experience of planning and implementing capital equipment engineering projects within the FMCG sector, managing budgets upwards of £1 million, can work in a fast paced and changing environment ,as well as clearly identifying and articulating business risk to a variety of stakeholders, then this could be a great role for you.
Final part of the mix.
You will need to be a strong communicator and agile in your approach to understanding the needs of the business, knowledge of project management techniques and tools.
