The role will be focused on meeting the business plan and effectively managing the department’s resources to ensure maximum efficiencies are achieved and to lead activity to improve print associated processes, whilst ensuring quality and standard operating procedures are adhered to.
This role is rarely available in the market place and offers an opportunity for the right individual to really make an impact in the department and be part of the team driving change across the overall site. This is an autonomous role for the person to drive positive change through developing people, improving processes and latterly investing in new technologies.
