This is a full-time position

Expol Ltd has a vacancy for a Factory Supervisor for our Cromwell factory.  The role ensures that the production, manufacturing procedures, quality, and standard working procedures are adhered to ensuring quality of finished product to meet the standards of Building Specification and Insulation Standards. This will be an exciting role as in the third quarter of 2022 works commence to extend the current premises for the installation of new equipment that will increase capacity and allow us to manufacture new building products for the expanding market in the Otago Region.

 

Knowledge of manufacturing and/or production processes is preferred – though not essential. This is a hands-on management role that will require you to understand the manufacturing process and to be able to step in and assist the team in the factory when required.    While there is some office work involved and you will need to know your way around email, data entry, and customer service it is not an office-based position. The position manages a team of approximately 6 staff under the guidance of a very experienced senior management team.

This is a full-time position
