Arnsdorf

Production Manager

company: Arnsdorf
job title: Production Manager
location: Melbourne
work type: Part-time
level: Mid-level

Role Description

The Production Manager is responsible for the production of all womenswear for the brand from the  Arnsdorf warehouse and other locations where required. In this role, you work with machinists, cutters and other manufactures to produce high-quality products for the company. You lead the production planning process, ensuring that products are ready to be delivered into store and for wholesale accounts at the right time. It’s a small, passionate team, which means you are hands-on with the entire process.

Then there’s you…

You care about the impact that you have on the planet. You understand that the only way we can make change in the fashion industry is by making change in your everyday life and seeking out that same change through your work. You’re an experienced production manager and you’ve earnt that experience through being hands on in the production of high quality womenswear garments in a range of scenarios, large and small, with a minimum of 5 years. You’ve worked in small teams before and enjoy being able to oversee a broad scope of work and helping it to connect with retail, design and distribution. You know a lot about the type of systems, processes and techniques required to make a brand profitable: you’ve done it before and you’d like to do it again. Most importantly you know how to work with people and get the most out of your colleagues: managing in-house machinists, cutters, working with suppliers and contractors.

Key Responsibilities

The role works to deliver the following outcomes:

  • Products are produced at a high quality, free from error or defect to a high level
  • Produce and maintain a production schedule and keep to that schedule
  • Operate a production budget that meets financial targets
  • A well maintained roster of all production staff who consistently produce quality products
  • The delivery of weekly, monthly and quarterly reports
  • A motivated and productive staff base

You’ll perform duties that include:

  • Consulting with the brand’s creative director on product feedback and development throughout the product life-cycle
  • Work with the pattern maker to resolve technical and production related issues
  • Schedule and attend fittings with the team where required
  • Assist with creative director in realising the design outcomes of each season where required
  • Assist the brand’s creative director with identifying new products for development
  • Maintaining relationships with suppliers, including sourcing trims and fabrics for each range
  • Maintenance of equipment, well-being and safety in the factory
  • Performance management of staff

  • Worked to find a machinist to cover for one of our team members who needed to take leave
