A CapEx Project Manager is required to work for a market leading food manufacturing business based in the heart of North London. With 28 years of trading history, this £multi-million and multi-site operation has sustained YOY growth and withstood tough economic conditions. This is a testament to employee and customer satisfaction being at the forefront of strategic decisions, which has enabled this organisation to grow from humble beginnings into a UK powerhouse.

If you are an experienced CapEx Project Manager, with a track record in managing £multi-million CapEx projects for food manufacturing businesses, then I have a fantastic role for you. You will have overall accountability for over £20 million worth of projects, with full autonomy to control end to end CapEx projects with a key emphasis on technical and cost control.

The owners of the business recognise some key operational gaps within their business and what they now require, is a CapEx Project Manager that has worked in a fast-paced and high-volume food manufacturing or food process business, with the strength of character to manage complex projects.

The role of CapEx Project Manager will be as follows:

Oversee and be responsible for the delivery of various capital projects worth in excess of £20 million
Full CapEx project management from liaising with suppliers on technical specifications to project management of the integration of new equipment into the plant
Financial accountability of all projects and cost control
End to end project management to include; customer/vendor meetings, URS creation, tendering and supplier selection
Creating Gantt charts and to monitor progress to ensure project milestones/deadlines are met and capital purchasing
Control of Contractors with CDM, contract management, FAT, SAT, commissioning and installation
Ensure Health and Safety across all projects
Working closely with the Technical Manager for the integration and management of CapEx projects
Outline and control equipment procedures related to integration, operation and maintenance
Leading and managing a small team of Project Engineers

The ideal CapEx Project Manager will have a combination of the following:

Experienced CapEx Project Manager or Industrial Project Manager with a track record of delivering successful £multi-million projects
The ideal candidate will have delivered CapEx projects specifically for the food, food production or food manufacturing sector
A suitable engineering qualification with Prince II is highly desirable
Any knowledge or experience of lean and Six Sigma is a bonus
Strong leadership and project management skills with a proven track record in controlling cost of large-scale projects
Can work in a fast-paced and challenging environment

The benefits:

You will be rewarded with a fantastic remuneration package with full autonomy to control CapEx projects throughout the UK operations. As the CapEx Project Manager, you will already hold a senior position within the company, however, over the next five years, there will be plenty of opportunities for this role to develop and progress.
