How do you know your MD values supply chain?

When they see it as a sales and profit enabler.


The MD of a medium-sized Nottingham based business is looking for a Head of Supply Chain to join the senior management team.  Within their market they’re best in service, but want to be better.


There are a number of key areas that Supply Chain can enhance the business and their offering:


Stock – working within tight capacities, you’ll be looking reduce inventory whilst maintaining availability, allowing reinvestment across the business with the released cash.


Availability – currently running at market leading 94%, the MD doesn’t want to rest on laurels. The next target is 96.5%.


Systems – Having recently implemented SAP, you’ll be looking at how this can be best utilised, including looking at bolt-on products.


Product portfolio – Their current portfolio is 12500 SKUs, sourced from local and Far East suppliers. With an abundance of data available, you’ll be reviewing and rationalising the range before supporting an increase in more profitable own brand product introductions.


This is perfect if you’re looking to join a business that has a clear vision for how supply chain planning can enhance it. With the full backing of the MD, you’ll have the autonomy to develop and run the supply chain planning function.


If you have retail / high volume supply experience, coupled with a technical knowledge of SAP, we’d love to hear from you.
