Daily Production Planner – Bindery

Clays has been operating for over 200 years, producing some of the most well-known and best-selling books in the UK, providing an invaluable service to a range of publishing clients.

The Production Planning Team schedules the workflow through the factory and is responsible for ensuring that the production plan meets our customers’ requirements whilst planning for maximum productivity.

Working closely with the Capacity Planners (who load the relevant work to the correct machines and set the masterplan for the forthcoming weeks), the Daily Production Planner is responsible for tracking the machines and setting the production plan for the next 24 hours.

The successful candidate will be able to:

  • Work well as part of a team.
  • Organise and prioritise workloads.
  • Use their own initiative to make decisions.
  • React fast to ever changing plans.
  • Work well under pressure.
  • Liaise effectively at all levels within the factory.

Confidence in using IT systems is essential and knowledge of “Accuterm” would be an advantage.

Previous experience working in a manufacturing environment would be preferable but not essential.

Excellent interpersonal and communication skills are essential so that you can liaise effectively within your team, with factory managers and machine operators to build good working relationships.

Please note that due to the location of our factory in Bungay, Suffolk it would be preferable if you have your own transport.

If you have a strong work ethic and a can-do approach to work, please send your CV with a covering letter either by post or email to:
