A rare opportunity has arisen to join the Management Team of Levett Engineering as the Production Manager. Reporting directly to the Program Manager and working closely with the Chief Executive Officer, you will be responsible for leading the skilled and experienced Production Team.

Levett Engineering produces high value, low volume premium components for some of the most exciting and exacting globally significant projects.

Being new to the business you will need to establish your credibility with the Production Team quickly and will need to be comfortable managing multiple inputs and competing demands. You will work daily with the Program Manager and Production Planner, as well as Purchasing and Inventory Control to ensure the Production Team is producing the right components at the right time with 100% quality, accuracy and efficiency. Your experience in producing and delivering complex components which form part of a larger, time critical, project in a “just in time” environment is essential for success in this role.

The person we seek will also have the following core competencies:

  • Experience in a manufacturing environment;
  • Trade qualifications;
