​I’m excited to be working with a super successful e-commerce business who are looking to expand their footprint in Europe. With fast paced growth in the UK and Europe already, this business have set up their operation in Germany and are now hiring for their permanent Plant Manager to guide the team through the seasonal peaks and towards very ambitious growth targets for the next few years.

This role combines operational leadership of the production process and packing and fulfilling customer orders. Working with suppliers from multiple locations, with a very short shelf life product, time is of the essence for this business and we really need someone who understands working in a manufacturing lead warehouse operation, preferably in fresh produce, but certainly in an industry with clear seasonal peaks.

Customer experience is key to this company, so some knowledge of D2C would be helpful.

This is a great opportunity for someone looking to continue their career in a fast paced, start up type environment and would suit you if you meet the following criteria:

  • Fluent in English and German

  • Experience of managing a production warehousing environment- preferably e-commerce

  • Real focus on customer service and quality

  • Excellent communication skills- being able to build strong relationships with the teams in the UK will be a key part of this role

  • Strong focus on data driven analysis for problem solving

Please note we are looking for someone who will be based in Germany, relocation is possible but not remote working, and for that reason we can also only consider people with EU right to work already.
