Randstad, Vordingborg

Group LEAN and technical specialist

Randstad is recruiting on behalf of Viking Malt, who is looking for a competent and enterprising Group LEAN & technical specialist. Viking Malt is a world-leading provider of both pilsner malt and special malts and is based in Denmark, Sweden, Finland, Poland and Lithuania. The malts come from pure fields in Northern Europe and are shipped all over the world to brewers of all sizes. It is the aim of Viking Malt to help devoted brewers around the globe produce beers that people tell stories about.

Responsibilities and goals

With direct reference to the Site Manager in Vordingborg and a matrix reference to the VP Supply Chain in Polen, you will be responsible for the coordination of best practices across the Viking Group maltings. Your primary objective will be to improve the production activities through optimizations of both processes and technologies.

Your work tasks will include:

- Implementation of LEAN and continuous development of LEAN principles and working methods
- Ensuring that production and utility best practices are captured and rolled out in the maltings
- Continuous production process optimization and coordination of trials with new technologies
- Facilitating and driving systematic problem solving of non-conformities
- Training of employees in LEAN, systematic problem solving and best practices
- Follow-up on and further development of the above initiatives

Some of the activities will have a local scope only for the site in Vordingborg, while others activities will be at group level. You will have many contacts in the organization and take on a coordinating role with a wide scope. Thus, the functions as H&S coordinator at group level and as management representative for ISO 50001 in the energy group in Vordingborg will also be part of your responsibilities.

The position is a global role, and therefore you should expect between 40 to 60 travel days a year visiting Sweden, Finland, Poland and Lithuania, respectively. However, the main base for the job is the Viking Malt site in Vordingborg.


Besides a technical background as an engineer or technologist, you have experience optimizing production processes applying LEAN principles and tools. Ideally, you have experience from a food related industry and know how food safety and food quality considerations impact production processes. You possess excellent communication skills and are fluent in both spoken and written Danish and English. As a person, you value independence and systematics. You have a great drive and follow up on the initiatives you initiate. You have an analytical approach to your work tasks and are able to go into details while also keeping a good overview.

In addition to this, you have:

- A minimum of 3-5 years' relevant experience from a manufacturing company

- Relevant education, e.g. as an engineer or technologist
