Job Description

Line lead

Production Line leaders often begin in entry-level roles and work their way up to a line leader position. Strong leadership and communication are the most beneficial skills. Line leaders oversee the manufacturing activities within their department with a focus on meeting production targets.




Direct Assembly Line Workers: Line leaders give orders and instructions to assembly line workers so that each member of the production line is aware of what they need to do and what they are responsible for to maximize quality and productivity.

Complete Paperwork: Line leaders complete paperwork and any associated administrative tasks related to the production line, from updating records to show what has been completed to noting any issues.

Set Up Production Lines: Line leaders assign tasks based on what orders have come in and which members of the team are working on each day. They set up the production line to complete these orders efficiently.

Identify Production Line Issues: If there are any issues with production or fulfilling orders on time, line leaders quickly identify these problems and find ways to resolve them so that deadlines are still met without compromising quality.

Enforce Regulations: Line leaders ensure that all members of the team follow company policies and that healthy and safety regulations are being enforced to meet safety compliance.




Line leaders are great motivators and clear communicators who can handily troubleshoot issues as they come up, as well as the following abilities:

Leadership: line leaders must motivate their team and show support and guidance when necessary, so strong leadership skills are key to this job

Time management: production lines run on strict schedules, so line leaders must manage their own time well, as well as the time of those around them
