Within this context we are looking for a Technical Manager for our production site in Antwerpen (Noorderlaan); a bit like a Maintenance Manager but not exactly…..Together with our external partners and the whole operations team of the sorting centre, our Technical Manager will provide a reliable technical environment and a healthy infrastructure.
As Technical Manager, you are responsible for the operational technical management of the machines and the infrastructure of our sorting centre in Antwerpen. You take care of the agreed KPIs in terms of technical quality, costs and reporting. In addition, you contribute to the optimal operation of the production site by continuously improving processes.
You plan, organize and supervise all maintenance activities so that the site, building and machinery function optimally. You are in contact with third parties with regard to this activity and you manage the interactions.
You contribute to the definition and implementation of the optimal production standards in collaboration with the Quality & Process department and the Production manager on the basis of market studies and benchmarking.
You actively contribute to the establishment and maintenance of a "continuous improvement" approach for the operational and technical processes.

You ensure the resource management for the technical team in terms of quality and quantity in order to achieve all short and medium term objectives. You accompany and supervise the teammembers.
In the sorting centre, our equipment is running at full speed; an Engineering degree and 3 years of experience will of course make your integration on the site a lot easier. Dutch is your native language and you can also communicate with colleagues and suppliers in the other national language. English is also a plus.
A project based approach is familiar to you, including people management: individual coaching, convincing, organizing, including managing social relationships.
You are a real team player: thanks to your engaging character, your flexibility and high EQ and your willingness to work together.
You have a solid knowledge of quality and productivity processes, and continuous improvement (TPM, WCM, Green Belt, LEAN, 6 sigma).
You have technical insight and you know your way around technical materials and building & contract management.
You are an entrepreneur, you accelerate and yet you work smoothly together with the rest of the management team.
