This is a 12-weeks paid internship opportunity with MJ Products ltd, as part of the WMG Internship Programme.
This is a unique role that combines the opportunity to implement an MRP system and the design of a Lean Manufacturing production system for MJ Products, a rapidly growing manufacturer in the lifting and manual handling sector. The role involves critical investigation of key production processes to reduce waste, improve yields and productivity. Should you be successful during the internship, there may be opportunity for a full-time position at the end of the 12-week period.
The internship is based at the company site in Desford, and you will be working closely with the MJ Products management team, gaining first-hand experience in a manufacturing business; as part of the Programme, you will also benefit from weekly supervision and support by a WMG expert, throughout the duration of the project.
The team at MJ Products Ltd has over 25 years’ experience in the design and manufacture of innovative products for handling and the returnable transit packaging arena for SME’s and Blue-Chip customers, including major retailers, automotive parts distributors, and national postal organisations.
You will be responsible for the implementation of an MRP software system to manage the end-to-end business operation processes. The MRP system will replace multiple systems currently used. A phased method of introduction will be required to support the continued operation of the business during the implementation.
In parallel you will also be responsible for the design of a Lean Manufacturing production system to optimise the company’s production processes, that can operate in conjunction with the MRP system allowing for the inclusion of additional MRP modules to be added as the business continues to grow.
This will include documenting the existing processes in detail and conducting root cause analysis on the sources of inefficiencies via a structured improvement methodology. Main activities will include:
This opportunity will provide you with great industry experience and exposure to a fast-moving market that is committed to sustainability practices. With responsibilities from day one, you will have the opportunity to take ownership of the project and directly experience the impact of your role. You will be supported to grow your talents and ideas. The project is ideal for a technically minded individual with an interest in business development and growth.
