Why Join HEINEKEN's John Smiths Brewery?
Founded by John Smith in 1758, Tadcaster boasts a brewing heritage second to none. A high-tempo site that incorporates brewing, canning, kegging, bottling, and packaging, it’s a brewery where tradition and innovation come together to produce over 60 million pints a year.  As the flexible ‘go-to’ brewery for Heineken, the site is a pivotal part of the Supply Chain network; we proudly brew some of the most important lager and ale brands in the UK, such as John Smith’s, Birra Moretti, Desperados, Murphy’s, Fosters, Kronenbourg 1664, Amstel, and Tiger.

What’s the role?
As a Shift Manager, you will be leading a shift of 10-15 operators within our logistics operations and delivering on the KPI targets for the department.  With the role's main focus on safety, you will need a continuous improvement mindset that will help us drive our continuous improvement methodologies (we use TPM) throughout our culture, creating a high-performance environment.

What are we looking for?
As we increase the complexity of our products, we also increase the expectations of our People Managers, will you be the leader we’re looking for? Self-motivated and positive, ready to engage and lead a team of experienced logistics operators, ensuring they have the right skills, behaviours, development, and support to deliver exceptional operational results.

We're looking for inspirational leaders with previous experience in leading teams (not necessarily in logistics but complex/high volume operations), as this is a People Manager role and requires an individual who exhibits the behaviours outlined in our Leadership Expectations:

Connect – Getting the best out of people through a positive, engaging, and authentic style
Shape – We focus on lean (we use TPM methodology) and your proven continuous improvement mindset will lead the way
Develop – You’ll create an environment that truly drives high performance through effective performance management and development planning (we will support you on your own development in this area)
Deliver – Getting results through your team

What do we offer?
Along with your salary and shift allowance, we offer an award-winning double matched pension (up to 10% from HEINEKEN), a performance bonus (up to 10% for meeting performance expectations), private health insurance, subsidised on-site canteen facilities, a case of our HEINEKEN products every month (can be accrued) plus many other perks included in your package.
