Be empowered to be innovative and creative where difference is valued.

Join a place built on innovation and creativity. Where different views and perspectives are welcomed and valued. An environment that champions inclusion, and teams that reflect the diversity of the communities that we serve.

Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) is a core component of our AstraZeneca Supply System (AZSS), helping to create the equipment reliability and people capability needed to enable the delivery of more medicines to more patients, more quickly and more affordably.

Reporting to the TPM Lead, TPM Facilitators use the AstraZeneca TPM deployment model to drive the behaviours, principles, standards, and tools of TPM across our process execution teams at our Macclesfield Campus.

You’ll be accountable for defining and managing project delivery across multiple assets and reporting progress and KPIs to key stakeholders. You’ll train, coach, and influence our production and engineering teams to embed TPM into standard work with the purpose of delivering tangible improvement in capabilities, behaviours and ultimately performance improvement of key assets.

Lean transformation is not static and evolves as we mature. Hence our TPM deployment approach must also evolve. We'll ask you to be an active contributor to the evolution of TPM to ensure it remains aligned to business priorities.

We'll need you to be passionate about digital to support AstraZeneca's aspiration to accelerate the use of digital solutions to improve the efficiency of the AZSS.

What you'll do:

Firstly, you’ll be enrolled on our immersive global TPM Academy to learn the AstraZeneca TPM deployment model. After which, you'll deploy TPM in a coordinated way across the Campus as a Professional Maintenance (PM) Facilitator. This will involve driving measurable business improvement using TPM methodologies by bringing to life, real business experiences and TPM expertise with a mixture of training, mentoring, and influencing.

You will be a TPM champion - through role modelling, coaching and facilitation.

You will work with the global TPM Network team, helping shape and develop the TPM approach for the future.

You'll collaborate with regional and site Lean leads/process champions to ensure TPM isn’t a one-off event but becomes part of our DNA.

  • Relevant experience operating at a level equivalent to:

    • Engineer, with a recognised educational background (HNC/D and/or Degree)

  • Demonstrable industry related experience/aptitude in reliability focused projects and programs with a track record of delivering sustainable business value

  • Experience of working collaboratively with cross functional teams. Driving effective culture change through strong facilitation, coaching, and influencing skills.

  • Experience of coaching others to implement and improve Lean basic conditions and leader habits, e.g., strategy deployment, visual management, practical problem solving etc.

  • Experience of GMP and Pharmaceutical Manufacturing/Services assets/equipment

  • Experience of Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) industries
