Now that Six Sigma is a fully entrenched methodology for process improvement, demand for Black Belts and Master Black Belts has created an ecosystem of training and jobs that few would have predicted twenty years ago. Now, the Master Black Belt is an essential component in a Six Sigma project and is responsible for its strategic realization. He or she is also involved with assisting the Black Belts and Green Belts as required, with the ultimate aim of achieving maximum productivity in the process by eliminating errors and inconsistencies throughout.
The scope of the Master Black Belt’s role is dependent on the structure of the company, but they can be overseeing a single complex process or a number of straightforward ones, analyzing and improving as they go. There will be close relationships with suppliers and customers, too, as achieving near-perfection involves the whole supply chain.
Companies that have adopted Six Sigma methodology usually have an infrastructure in place, and you, the Master Black Belt, will be expected to get up to speed quickly in your work with the team. However, as companies are still adopting the system as they embark on quality drives, you could well be overseeing a process from its inception, which requires even more advanced organizational and interpersonal skills.
You should have risen through the ranks of Six Sigma through Green and Black Belt status, and depending on the role, you may require experience as a Master Black Belt with the relevant qualifications, or you could simply have recently passed the qualification and are looking to make the move. Experience of working in the same industry would of course be a useful attribute to better understand the ecosystem and the way the company works.
Have you achieved Master Black Belt status but are still being treated – and compensated – as a Black Belt? It’s probably time to jump ship and put your skills to good use. At Cast UK we regularly have change and transformation clients who have adopted Six Sigma or are looking to adopt it, and who are looking for talented people just like you.
Cast UK is right now filling vacancies in management and directorships right across the United Kingdom, and we’d love to hear from you if you’re a Black Belt looking to make the change. Call us today on 0161 825 0825.
If Norfolk and Suffolk were to disappear underwater, and let’s hope they don’t, the Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate cluster would represent the UK’s easternmost point. Situated on the tip of Kent, it has long been the holiday resort of choice for many a Londoner who wants to trade the city streets for sandy beaches and fun. It was also one of the favourite Mods v Rockers battlegrounds in the 1960s, although Brighton is better known for this accolade.
Like many seaside towns of the UK, Margate went through great development in the Victorian era, boomed in the mid to late twentieth century, then declined as more and more families holidayed overseas as flights became more affordable. Margate has a population of about 60,000, which does swell a little in the summer months, but it is more a day-tripper’s destination than a holiday resort nowadays. The population has had to diversify somewhat for the town to survive, and there is now a wider range of non-tourist employment and a small amount of manufacturing taking place in the town.
Manston Airport, or Kent International Airport, is located a few miles to the south west of Margate, and handles flights to mainland Europe and the Channel Islands. The town is reasonably well connected by road and rail to London and the South Coast, too. Margate will have the kinds of logistics needs that accompany any concentration of population, which can sometimes throw Master Black Belt - Six Sigma jobs into the mix, but nearby Canterbury, Ashford or Folkestone might be better bets.
Cast UK’s regional specialists can provide detailed information about the potential employers, the available job types and the average expected salary.
