Are you a Supply Chain leader looking for a role where you can make a difference and deliver supply chain transformation?

As a leading multi-site manufacturing business, we’re on a journey of change to improve the way our business runs. We’re looking to appoint a Head of Supply Chain to join our Senior Leadership Team.

Against a backdrop of consistent growth, we continue to trade well through 2020, with Q3 representing 20% YOY growth.

We’ve achieved this through having a heavy Sales & Marketing focus, but we realise that our Supply Chain and Operations need to catch up. As our business becomes more complex, we need an expert to manage and develop our supply chain.

This is where you come in.

You’ll be covering an end-to-end supply chain model including demand, materials, planning, and warehouse/distribution. We need you to wrap your arms around this and improve, upskill, and develop.

You’ll be able to make a huge impact through raising the profile of supply chain across the business. Develop a world-beating supply chain function and win over your local stakeholders, and you’ll unlock opportunity to integrate and harmonise supply chain across our group of businesses.

0-3 month demand visibility is excellent, but we’d like to be more strategic and have a longer term vision. You’ll have the autonomy to develop a supply chain function that does just this.

We’re currently heavily reliant on Excel for supply chain planning, despite having SAP. We’d love to hear your ideas on how we can get more out SAP.

You won’t be doing everything alone though. You’ll be inheriting a team that could be best in class – they just need the right coaching and development to unlock their potential.

Who are you?

It’s important you’ll be pragmatic and tactile, avoiding bulldozing legacy ideas and methods.

Striking the balance between being hands on and strategic, you’ll be more than happy to balance supply chain strategy with rolling your sleeves up on BAU activities.

If you’re a proven end to end supply chain leader with experience of gradual supply chain transformation, ideally from a LEAN or JIT environment, we’d love to hear from you.
