Operations Manager

To our production site in Reftele, we’re recruiting an Operations Manager.

Reporting to the Operations Director Europe, you’ll be part of a global organization with high ambitions to grow. We’re looking for a candidate willing to take great personal responsibility and with a “can-do attitude”. As DHG is very expansive and dynamic, you must be able to quickly adapt to new conditions. A willingness also to work in a warehouse and production context is required. As an Operations Manager, you have the overall responsibility for managing the production of the company’s products, managing the production employees, production planning and quality assurance on site.


Your work will include but not be limited to:

  • Production planning
  • Resource planning
  • Responsible for ensuring site output meets global production plan
  • Responsible for the quality of the product when leaving the factory
  • Inventory management
  • Archiving of documentation in accordance with applicable procedures
  • General maintenance of the machinery and premises
  • Prepare work instructions
  • Continuous improvement work



This is not your first people management position. You are a good communicator with leadership skills and you play an important role in securing a high level of quality in daily work. You feel comfortable using MS Office in general and some experience of ERP-system is required (presently we are migrating from Pyramid to Axapta). Good knowledge of Swedish and English – in speech and in writing.

Most of all, you feel confident in a production/manufacturing environment.


What can we offer?

You will join a truly international company with high ambitions for growth. At DHG, we are passionate to work in close collaboration with healthcare professionals to enhance outcomes, lower the cost of healthcare, deliver efficiencies, and expand access to our solutions. We have a strong commitment to our customers and patients. The Reftele site is a small, yet very important, part of our operational capacity. You will be managing quite a small team with a local presence but in the context of being a major player within our business areas.
