*** REMOTE WORKING FOR 4 DAYS A WEEK ***
A Coventry based FMCG and retail supply business are looking to grow 5-fold over the next 5 years. To help enable this growth, they’re looking for a Supply Chain Manager to join their team and take the lead on forecasting and demand planning for their international markets.
They have a strong own-label product portfolio and are looking to grow this via international retail partners.
As their Supply Chain Manager, the key areas you will have an impact on include forecasting, capacity management and development, and inventory management. Specifically, you’ll be focussing on;
- Creating and developing aggregate market forecasts, maximising forecast accuracy
- Working with supply teams to ensure product availability for international markets
- Creating rolling forecasts, including developing forecasting processes and tools
- Working with the commercial team to better understand customer requirements
- Developing supply chain processes, in particular operating models and capability
As the business grows, so too will your role. You won’t be doing the same thing year in year out, which is perfect if you prefer variety and are looking to develop your skills.
You’ll be surrounded by great FMCG professionals with major retailer experience, so you won’t be short of opportunity to learn from others.
As the supply chain expert within the business, you’ll be working with a high level of autonomy. There won’t be a manager looking over your shoulder. You’ll be supported, but equally if you’re the type of person that would rather take control of your own development and knowledge, it’s the perfect environment.
The business embraces remote working, meaning you'll only need to head to the office 1 day per week.
