Which scenario sounds better to you?

‘We really need to focus on improving our stock position. We’ve got a bit too much stock in our warehouse which is just tied up cash. If we want to continue growing at 25% each year, we need to free some of this up to invest elsewhere…what do you think we should do?’
‘Well Dave, I’ve pulled up a SLOB report and we’re holding too much of our tail end product. We’re over forecasting. I’ve a few solutions to run this stock down and improve future forecasting data. What do you think?
‘Go for it. You’re the Supply Chain Manager, I trust you. This is perfect, thank you’.


‘Can you pull me up a stock variance report please. I need it before you leave today’.
‘But Richard, it’s 4:45…’
‘Sorry, it can’t wait. I need to present to the board tomorrow on how I’m going to sort out our excess stock. Oh, and don’t forget about the supplier performance report I need’.

Don’t work for Richard, work with Dave.

Dave is the director of fast growing FMCG business.

He comes from a buying / supply chain background, so values the impact supply chain has on the business.

The business has grown to the point where they’d like a supply chain professional to come in and take the lead on developing it, including forecasting, supplier management, stock management, and imports / freights.

As you’ll be reporting straight in to Dave, you’ll be visible and he’ll directly see the impact you’re having on the business. He doesn’t micromanage, and will give you the freedom to run the Supply Chain department as you see fit (as long as it fits within the business plan of course!).

They have an abundance of data, and some good processes in place, but it still needs development as the business continues to grow.

If you’d like to hear more about the above, you can either apply via this advert, or contact Joel Stevenson at Distinct Recruitment.
