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 0333 121 3345.
A new town situated in Shropshire, Telford is located around 30 miles from Birmingham and is one of the fastest growing settlements in the UK, making it a great choice for those seeking Master Black Belt - Six Sigma vacancies.
Most of Telford was built in the 1960s and 1970s on what had previously been industrial and agricultural land. However, people have been living in the region for thousands of years and evidence has been found of Roman roads and other ancient settlements. In its early days, the region's economy was based mainly in the mining of coal and ironstone, as well as metalworking.
As a planned town, Telford has been carefully laid out, with loads of residential property and plenty of retail outlets. What's more, the road infrastructure means that it's easy to travel between Telford and other destinations like Birmingham, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton.
In recent years, further regeneration and expansion have occurred to make the area even more attractive for businesses and residents.
These days, much of Telford's economy is based in the service sector and IT industries. Companies like Hitachi, Maxell and Nokia have offices or manufacturing facilities in the area, while other companies include GKN, Siemens and Fruit of the Loom.
