“How do we improve?” That’s the question facing you as Regional Operational Excellence Manager for APAC for this international chemical company. You’ll be driving operational improvements initiatives at over 30+ sites across APAC, working on a number of initiatives such as; driving automation of manufacturing processes; identification of where new manufacturing plants are best suited; footprint evaluation analysis, and; standardization of manufacturing processes.

This a new role for this business division as responsibility for Operational Excellence moves from the Centre of Excellence to this new role dedicated to the business unit.

You’ll need to have experience in a process/blending manufacturing environment and have experience of implementing lean manufacturing practices. You’re likely already in such an Operational Excellence role or perhaps on a Plant Manager, Operations Manager or Manufacturing Manager on a chemical plant.

In addition to the technical skills described above, whilst you won’t directly be managing a team you will need to be a strong leader who can influence those around them in order to drive change at multiple sites with multiple stakeholders.
