Hire a Production Supervisor

 

A production supervisor is a crucial member of the management team. In the daily operations of a manufacturing or production facility, production supervisors are knowledgeable of each aspect necessary for smooth operations. From target production, resource allocation, staff scheduling, and working budget, production supervisors know every detail. They are problem-solvers who manage problems and troubleshoot production hiccups to prevent hindrances to production. More than these, however, production supervisors are leaders who motivate and encourage team members to be at their best and work together as a team. 

 

Before filling any job vacancy, recruitment managers create a job description to inform candidates about a role’s responsibilities and requirements. Simply put, it is a useful way of painting a picture of a production supervisor’s role within the hiring company. More than a simple list of a position’s details, however, a job description is the first glimpse of possible candidates of the hiring company. With this in mind, why not use the job description to instill some excitement? Pique the interest of your ideal candidates by writing about the company culture, values, and environment. If allowed, tell them something about the benefits and perks of working as a production supervisor. 

 

Responsibilities of a Production Supervisor

 

Production supervisors review and study all aspects of production, processes, procedures, and staff to determine areas for improvement and efficiency. They participate in the recruitment process by interviewing candidates, working with hiring managers to select the most qualified applicants, and training them as necessary. 

 

Production supervisors delegate tasks to different team members and monitor their work performance. They ensure that each team member is contributing to the team’s daily operational targets. To minimize the turnover rate and attrition, production supervisors help manage staff performance and train them in their weak areas. They lead by example and help all team members develop good work habits and develop consistent work quality. 

 

Additionally, production supervisors implement and maintain production schedules. They develop plans to manage emergencies or problems that may come during production. Also, production supervisors conduct regular inspections and audits to check on product quality. Lastly, they take charge of making sure that all team members work according to safety standards and guidelines to avoid any injury or accident. 

 

 

Skills and Qualifications of a Production Supervisor

Candidates who would like to apply as a production supervisor need to have an associate’s degree or bachelor’s degree in business management, engineering, or a related field. The educational requirement depends on the hiring company’s needs. Proven work experience as a production supervisor gained in the manufacturing or production space is necessary. In-depth knowledge of industry-specific best practices, production efficiency, and safety regulations are beneficial. 

The ideal candidate for production supervisor is a problem-solver with excellent time management and multitasking skills. Because part of the job is to engage with the management team and staff members, candidates need to give and receive verbal and written instructions well. Similarly, strong communication and interpersonal skills are helpful. Lastly, candidates must have strong demonstrated leadership skills.
