Production Manager Jobs

Production manager jobs ensure that goods are produced efficiently, at the right quality, quantity and cost, and that they are produced on time.  Production manager jobs may include working on anything from cars or aeroplane parts to medicines or food products. In some production manager jobs, they are known as operations managers.

Production manager jobs may involve forward planning, drawing up production schedules, estimating how long a job will take, monitoring the production process. 

Production manager jobs will also be responsible for supervising and motivating employees.

Production manager jobs normally include working 37 to 40 hours a week, but many production manager jobs may need to work shifts and unsocial hours including evenings and weekends.

Production manager jobs are mainly office-based but some time is spent on the factory floor. Some production managers jobs may involve travelling between a number of sites.

Salaries for production manager jobs may range from around £18,500 to over £50,000 a year.

Production manager jobs require the ability to work to deadlines, be good at solving problems logically, be able to think on their feet, communicate well with others and have an interest in the production process.

Production manager jobs are for large and small companies throughout the UK particularly in large cities. There is a growing demand in production manager jobs with higher-level technical qualifications in industries such as engineering, electronics and information technology.

Production manager jobs start as trainee managers. Production manager jobs need considerable experience before taking up the full responsibilities and many have worked in related roles such as supervisor before going on to manage the whole process.
