Bega Cheese Group is home to many trusted and wholesome food brands that are enjoyed in Australia and all around the world. Our growth story of becoming a successful ASX listed company with a turnover in excess of $3 billion and over 4000 employees, is made possible by our values and outward-looking perspective.

With a strong regional focus and dedication to community, we are proud of our heritage and will continue to build great opportunities to allow people to develop and thrive.

If you are curious & creative, invested in not only your own success but also the growth of others, and believe in building the Great Australian Food Company, then you might be the one for us!

The Opportunity and Team
At Bega, within our Dairy & Drinks team, we are empowered to deliver high quality products to our customers safely and on time. We want to make doing business with us as easy as possible. To do this, we take the time to get to know our customers and teams to build strong partnerships.

To support growth, our Lenah Valley site will undergo a multi-million-dollar upgrade to support delivery of the big brands within our dairy portfolio such as the Dare Iced Coffee range, Pura, Dairy Farmers and Farmers Union. We now have an opportunity to join our passionate business as an Operational Excellence Leader.

Reporting to the Site Leader, you will play a pivotal role leading and inspiring the change journey at our key beverage site. You will be responsible for:

  • Promoting the use of TRACC methodology & Lean Six sigma to support the structured and planned delivery of the site strategy
  • Leading the delivery of the site broad plan to ensure best utilisation of resources to deliver the site SOAP (Strategy on a page) and site OPEX Implementation Plan
  • Supporting & guiding the Site Steering Group & taskforce teams in TRACC best practice implementation, aligned to the site OPEX implementation plan
  • Coaching & supporting work teams to enable OEE improvement & waste reduction initiatives
  • Supporting and guiding delivery of site OPEX specific capability plans to support broad plan, SOAP and MEX Implementation Plan
  • Nurturing teamwork within all site teams
  • Making safety a priority and champion a safety culture with the OPEX team

To be Successful in this Role
We look for potential, not only performance. To be successful you will be open about your strengths and weaknesses and prepared to challenge yourself. We value diversity of thinking, experiences and perspectives and listening. Bega people support each other to achieve together.

We run at a fast pace and are always forward looking. We recognise there are always things we can improve on, so we are looking for an optimistic forward-thinking leader to develop our lean manufacturing culture through coaching and leading change at all levels onsite.

We are looking for someone who is equally comfortable taking ownership for delivery as well as empowering others. With an ability to nurture teamwork at all levels, support the strategy and lead our Operational Excellence maturation plan the goal is to improve site performance, build capability and develop lean processes within the Bega Dairy & Drinks improvement framework.

This role would suit a great people leader and influencer with a passion for Operational Excellence and who enjoys achieving through others and managing change. Your ability to influence and engage, with a strong focus on collaboration and building team capability will be imperative as we continue to embed new processes and a world class culture in a fast-paced environment. Industry experience across FMCG/Manufacturing would be a clear advantage.

We advocate for diversity and believe every single person at Bega Dairy and Drinks can lead change to make things better. If that excites you then challenge yourself to make a difference and help make our beverage site the best it can be.
