  • Generate regular reports on order status and production progress to meet customer deliverables, identifying and resolving scheduling problems in collaboration with relevant departments.
  • Drive continuous improvement in scheduling efficiency and develop tools to analyse production performance, informing capacity planning and articulating the impact of program changes on delivery milestones.
  • Engage early in the product lifecycle to inform bid and program management activities, collaborating on solutions to meet customer requirements and expectations.

What are we looking for in our next Production Scheduler?

  • Strong planning and scheduling experience, preferably in defence.
  • Track record in cultural change and continuous improvement.
  • Qualifications in lean, six sigma, or project management are advantageous.
  • Proficient negotiator and influencer, driving results with or without formal authority.
  • Detail-oriented, delivery-focused, and adept at prioritization.
  • Skilled in devising and executing strategies, simplifying complex situations.
  • Capable of fostering engagement across large organizations.
  • Effective communicator, adept at issue resolution and consensus-building.
  • Self-motivated and able to inspire others while working independently.
  • Excellent interpersonal skills demonstrated leadership in collaborative settings, and proficient in providing clear feedback.
