When was the last time you were in the right place at the wrong time?
For me, October 2010.
Right place: In a canoe in the North Sea. Wrong time: at low tide.
As a result, I was on my way to America wearing nothing but a life jacket and some pants (I lost my joggers in the sea).
If you’re a better judge of getting things in the right place at the right time than I am, this might be the perfect job for you.
Inventory Planning Manager, Nottinghamshire.
You’ll be accountable for getting the right stock, in the right place, at the right time.
It sounds simple, but when you’re dealing with a few thousand product lines across multiple UK and international DC’s, there’s a good degree of complexity to the role.
You’ll be the crucial link between supply chain teams including forecasting, demand, production planning, and logistics operations.
Through leading a team of planners, you’ll be balancing inbound, WIP, and outbound stock across the business, ensuring capacities aren’t stretched, storage is adequate, and logistics costs are minimised.
You’ll also be playing a key part in long term strategy, as the business will build strategy around your long-term horizon plans.
You’ll be part of a culture where people are valued equally (there are no big exec bonuses here – everyone gets the same profit share), and an environment that is truly customer centric (the business is all about improving their customer experience.).
The business has a track record of developing people, so you won’t have the same developmental frustrations that you potentially have right now.
Experience of global inventory planning is essential, whether as part of wider supply chain role, or something more specific such as S&OP or SIOP. We’re open on industry sector, as long as you’ve dealt with high volume SKU levels.
You’ll be joining an environment where you’ll be valued, challenged, and pushed, but ultimately supported by a group of excellent supply chain professionals.
