Job Description: Manufacturing Supervisor
Date Closing: 17th July 2023

Who Are We?

Adaptavate is a business of the future, a dynamic team of engineers, thinkers, walkers, parents, dreamers, climbers, scientists, gardeners, friends, family and visionaries. People who think differently to make a big impact through our work… together.

We are establishing a leading business to develop products that will spearhead the transition to carbon negative building materials of the future. This is done by developing, producing, and commercialising the next generation of carbon negative, plant based, performance building materials for the construction sector. Adaptavate continue to launch new products, build revolutionary processes and grow our game changing team. Our products are designed for every builder, architect or homeowner to use or specify.

Adaptavate have developed BreathaBoard as a sustainable, low carbon alternative to standard plasterboard. By delivering this innovation through our pilot line, we will catalyse genuine environmental change to the UK and beyond, at a time when the planet needs it most.

We are expanding our team and need a Manufacturing Supervisor, to support us, collaborate with us and help us achieve all that we’re aiming for. We can’t wait for you to join us.

Your Role:

We are looking to recruit a practical candidate who is adaptable and pro-active, to strengthen our engineering and technical teams.

In our workshop, the team is building the first of its kind pilot production line that will make BreathaBoard for commercial projects.

We will support you in learning these new processes, so direct prior experience is not necessary, but practical aptitude is required.

Initially you will be part of the commissioning of this exciting new production line. Once commissioned, we will be delivering product to projects around the world as well as developing new product variants. This is not a standard mass production line.

The impact of our business is realised by the cohesion and growth of our team members. We aim to create a supportive and respectful working environment that enables you to thrive. Collectively, we are the change.
