Our structural timber engineered floor and roof solutions have been developed to meet the latest construction industry demands for improved energy performance.  Manufactured off-site, our panelised roof systems help to improve lead times, health & safety, and quality for customers across the UK, from national house builders to regional developers, to self-builders.

Is this role right for me?

We are looking for the right person to fit in with our Saint-Gobain culture, but we know this needs to be right for you too. So, if you think you match the following, then we would love to hear from you! We are looking for someone with proven experience of motivating, coaching, and leading teams with a hands on approach in a manufacturing environment.  This role may be a great opportunity for an experienced Supervisor or Team Leader to take a step into your first Production manager position.  You will be leading a team of up to 3 Supervisors and around 40 colleagues (working over 2 shifts) in the delivery of our production plans while personally overseeing and ensuring quality, safety, and adherence to processes.
