We're looking for a Production Manager to work in our brand-new state of the art bodyshop.
Apply now to join us on this exciting new venture! Excellent salary being offered for the right candidate.
The Vella Group, previously known as The Karl Vella Group, is currently in the early stages of a complete rebrand. Every week, for the last thirty years, we have repaired hundreds of damaged vehicles to the industry's highest safety standards. We are proud to work with some of the largest insurers and networks in the country.
Being independent, financially stable and self-sufficient, allows us to work with only those customers and suppliers who we feel share our passion for customer service, quality, and efficiency. This means we are nimble enough to react more quickly than some of our competitors to changes in the market and remain up to date with the required equipment and technology to repair todays cars.
The group invests heavily in ongoing training for all our staff. Training is something that's at the heart of the company. Our founder Karl Vella's personal commitment to the training and the development of young people was recognised when he was awarded an MBE in the 2006 Queen's Birthday Honours List.
Our business is built on a foundation of recruiting and retaining employees who have the talent and attitude to thrive in this high-volume industry and rewarding them fairly for their contribution to our shared goals.
The company remains family owned, with a team of experienced staff and management. This mix of professional and family values helps us deliver a quality, forward thinking service, whilst not losing the personal touch.
Perks and Benefits:
- Excellent holiday allowance plus bank holidays
- Pension Scheme & death in service insurance.
- The Vella Group Reward Scheme, 'Above and Beyond', will give you access to hundreds of exclusive perks from cheap cinema tickets and discounts to major retailers and restaurants.
- The opportunity to join a salary sacrifice scheme which gives access to child care vouchers or a workplace nursery benefit.
Company culture is incredibly important to us. The successful candidate will be able to lead by example; believing in the Company's core values and genuinely promoting them through your actions. You will be able to support the ongoing development of a high performing team, with a working environment that, while sometimes high pressured, is one in which employees can take pride and enjoyment in providing a great service.
As a Production Manager, you will support in the day to day running of the site. You will be responsible for managing the workshop, the distribution of the work, setting completions dates and keeping the technicians motivated.
The business has fostered a supportive and collaborative environment, where we have great cross functional teamwork. You will work closely with all departments in the business and you will be part of the team that will help deliver the Vella Group's business strategy; achieving high levels of customer service; maintaining agreed key to key and cycle times; championing the values and goals of the business; and ensuring the company continues to deliver a healthy profit.
We encourage applications from everyone who wants to help us achieve The Vella Group's purpose and values.
