Salary Range: $60,000 to $75,000/yr. base salary
Minimum Requirements:
No degree required, but must have at least 5 years of prior production or operations management experience. Nice-to-haves would be experience with spray drying or fermentation technology, but having this background of technical expertise is not required. If a person does not have experience with spray drying and/or fermentation, they must be willing to learn the technology. The main attribute this hiring manager is looking for is a strong personality and the ability to manage others. This will be the main factor in succeeding in this role.
Job Description:
This person will be based at a 25-person plant that is located about an hour from both Montreal and Ottawa. The parent company (privately owned) is a multi-billion dollar manufacturer of animal feed additives and other products. This facility runs two 12-hour shifts and is a 24/7 operation; the Plant Manager has been with the company 18 years and is someone who is tough, but fair. She is looking for someone to manage the operators at the plant, many who have been with the company for a long time and who know the processes and equipment very well. Logical progression in this position would be into the Operations or Plant Manager role within 5 years. This company will provide relocation assistance if needed and is eager to hire someone for this role.
