Ref: D0020723



A Nottingham based FMCG business are looking for a Supply Chain Manager to take the lead on supply chain activity.


Family owned and well respected in their market, they supply a range of FMCG products to the UK retail trade, working with global suppliers and brands.


Customer service has been key to their success, and they see supply chain as a true sales enabler.


Managing a portfolio mix of short and long-lead time (Far East) products, you’ll be responsible for managing the end to end supply chain of the business.


You’ll have a clear remit and area of influence, including:


Systems: maximising the recently implemented SAP system to create effective supply chain processes.


Availability: having won awards for their customer service and availability, the business wants to push this in the right direction.


Range management:  With a portfolio of 12,500 SKUs and a system that now gives visibility of data, decisions can now be made around rationalisation and effective range management.


Inventory: You’ll be focussing on effective stock management, reducing overall stock holding, reviewing min / max levels, categorising products, and managing the overall stock position.


Metrics: developing and creating visibility of the right supply chain success metrics for the business.


Capacity: easing capacity constraints across a network of 6 distribution sites.


Team Leadership: Managing and developing a small team of 3.


About you:


Due to the recent implementation of SAP, experience of this is essential. You don’t need to be a technical expert, however the ability to understand what SAP can do for the business and supply chain is key.


Experience of FMCG / Retail supply is also preferable.


If you’re looking for a role where you be the number 1 in Supply Chain, we’d love to hear from you.
