Team-leaders monitor and control the working environment, performance and activities in their production line. This includes the leadership and motivation of their team on the production line in order to achieve production output, cost and quality targets in a safe manner.

  1. At the start of each shift, the team-leader is given detailed confirmation of his or her targets for output together with the detailed customer specifications of the products to be produced.
  2. Complying with all Quality, Food Safety and Health and Safety requirements, the Team leader is responsible for maintaining a safe environment around his or her line and ensuring that all work on the line is carried out in a safe manner and in line with quality standards and minimising the risk of accidents. The target is zero defects or rework and zero accidents or near misses.
  3. The aim is to achieve or exceed the production output targets by
    • training and motivating staff; controlling performance and discipline and achieving a positive attitude through good communication
    • maintaining workflow and balancing the line to achieve optimal output with minimum of stoppages.
  4. Reviewing performance, capability and suitability of team members; identifying training requirements and providing the Shift Supervisor with updated training information and if applicable the risk assessment.

  6. Maintaining vigilance and reporting problems through the correct channels e.g. hazards and quality failures using the correct procedures to ensure safe environment and the satisfaction of customer requirements in terms of quality, quantity and delivery on time every time.
  7. Making changes to the machines within defined parameters (short of dealing with breakdowns) e.g. changing film and adjusting running rates in order to optimise throughput. NB on some lines this work is delegated through to the Machine Operators
  8. Working efficiently and effectively with other team-members to achieve these goals.
