Posted: 3 weeks ago
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.
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.
