Next is one of the UK's best known high-street retailers and most established online retailers but did you know that we also have a rapidly growing furniture business? Our Next Manufacturing site is located in Armthorpe, Doncaster. Opened in 2016, with investment in the latest technology and state of the art environment, this is by no means your 'typical' manufacturing facility.
Five years on, the world is almost unrecognisable. In these uncertain and challenging times, we know that what's important is to look to the future. Next Furniture Manufacturing has full order books that we control; we can guarantee there is no shortage of work here! What's more, we aren't standing still. With growth of 33% over the next 12 months and plans to increase this even further, the future at Next Furniture Manufacturing is as strong and bright as our sofa designs.
It's all about producing the right product to the right standard in the most efficient way. That's why, as well as looking for great skills and impressive experience, we want people with energy, a positive attitude and a real commitment to helping exceed the expectations of customers all over the world.
Reporting to the Operations Manager, the Production Manager will play a 'hands on' role in the daily operational management to ensure that we deliver exceptional quality and value to our customers within the expected timescales.
You will be able to demonstrate a sound understanding of manufacturing practices, ensuring that all operational efficiency targets are achieved whilst minimising risk and maintaining a safe environment and high-quality standards. You will monitor actual performance against standards and take appropriate action when required, ensuring sufficient resource is available for the production areas and effectively managing the workloads of your team.
