Job Overview

The role of supervisor is vital to the effective running of each department, and supervisors must be able to get the best out of their teams and work professionally with their colleagues. To do this a supervisor will need to help deliver the strategic aims of the business as well as routine targets for their areas. The supervisor will be able to use the tools and techniques they have been trained in to control and measure performance and respond to issues, whether these are technical, supply or staff related.


Key Duties and Responsibilities

  • Make sure all work is done according to Company H&S procedures, and support improvement initiatives such as Who Cares Wins.
  • Meet quality targets and report on problems which prevent their attainment, support and drive problem solving and improvement.
  • Meet the production plan for your areas, report on problems which prevent their attainment, support and drive problem-solving and improvement.
  • Keep costs within agreed limits in the areas for which you are responsible, and report back on problems which prevent you from doing this.
  • Encourage, collect and implement improvement ideas in your area to reduce waste and make your staff’s jobs easier.
  • Ensure that you and your team report accurately and on time, manually and through software systems such as Orchestrate.
  • Work professionally and effectively with other supervisors and managers to meet overall company goals.
  • Make sure manning levels are correct today and flexed in time to suit upcoming work or gaps; work with colleagues to move labour between departments as part of doing this.
  • Use overtime where necessary to meet production needs.
  • Highlight shortages of parts before they disrupt the production schedule.
  • Make sure you understand all the work activities in your area. Maintain your skills matrix and undertake the training needed to fill any gaps.
  • Travel when necessary in order to support the business with activities associated with your job function.
  • Deal with grievances and disciplinary issues according to the company guidelines and training, but as far as possible, manage your team to avoid these arising in the first place.
  • Carry out interviewing, recruitment and induction / onboarding.
  • Carry out appraisals for your team members.
  • Deliver all activities in your area associated with the Operational Excellence transformational change program.


Specific KPI’s and Deliverables

Key Performance Indicators are vital in providing the business with information on how its operations are performing. For the production areas the KPI’s are largely focussed around H&S, Quality, Delivery, People and Environment. There is not a prescriptive list as the KPI’s themselves will evolve as the business develops and grows; all supervisors are expected to both report on these and contribute to improving levels of performance.



Paneltex recognises the importance of the Supervisor role and commits to provide sufficient training and development through a structured programme.
