Job description

This is to finish off a project currently underway applying change management principles and concepts to create a culture to transform leadership and management capabilities focusing on staff engagement and empowerment.

Project description

This new approach will underpin the development of a new internal quality management culture and enable the application of total quality management to the company manufacturing function to improve production efficiency. In addition, the approach will enable proactive and value generating supply-chain innovations to be achieved. The successful candidate will receive part-time mentored support from an academic expert in the Sheffield Business School. At the completion of this project there may be the potential for a full-time position with the company.
Typical requirements for the candidate are;
• Awareness and experience of the tools and techniques associated with change management and leadership.
• Understanding of the key features of a total quality management system for manufacturing.
• Interest in the application of TQM to vehicle manufacturing activities.
• Good interpersonal soft skills to implement the changes necessary to achieve the programme objectives.
• Good commercial awareness sufficient to create complex cost benefit analyses to justify investment
On completion of the project the expected outputs are:
• The emergence of a company culture of empowerment and employee engagement
• Leadership and management approaches aligned with transformational leadership (rather than transactional leadership)
• A significant increase in production and supply chain efficiency from the current level of 45%
• An operational self managed TQM system for company manufacturing management.
• Increased sales and profits due to increased competitiveness.
