  • Overseeing day-to-day operations of manufacturing facility
  • Organizing operations staff and work flow
  • Providing direction to reporting staff and solving problems they point out
  • Training staff on use of equipment and control points
  • Reviewing plant finances and finding areas to reduce costs
  • Working with process engineers and consultants and implementing their recommendations
  • Working with supply chain managers to secure correct amount of supplies
  • Ensuring workers follow standard procedures for health and safety

Training and Qualifications

Most plant manager jobs will require a bachelor’s degree in management or business, but experience in similar roles is what’s most important to employers. Sometimes production workers or other operations staff can work their way up to management positions.
