For over 20 years, Vitaflo® has been at the forefront of developing innovative specialised clinical nutrition products for Inborn Errors of Metabolism (IEM), nutrition support and disease specific conditions such as renal disease.  We have been part of Nestlé Health Science (NHSc) since in 2010 and have become an integral part of their aim to pioneer a new role for nutrition in disease prevention and management.  With continued double digit growth, plans to roll out our portfolio into further global markets and a burgeoning product pipeline, this is undoubtedly an excellent time to join us in what will be a truly exciting next phase of our development.

Following a sustained period of compliance and an aligning of our processes with our parent NHSc, we are now seeking to establish a world class supply chain capable of supporting us through a phase of rapid high growth.  Taking full responsibility for a multi-disciplinary global team, encompassing but not limited to, Customer Services, Quality, Technical & Process Development, Health & Safety, Logistics, Warehouse, Demand Planning and Co-Man Development, your challenge will be to lead, motivate and inspire the operations function to deliver products on a global platform.

Additionally the role will see you undertake a high level or investigative work and stakeholder management, as we seek to fully understand our current capabilities and infrastructure, and explore what opportunities are available for us to strengthen.  You will be given full authority to bring about strategic change, drive efficiency and shape the team into an industry leading supply chain function over a sustained period of time, the success of which will see you presented with genuine opportunities for career advancement both within Vitaflo and NHSc.

This is clearly a business critical role, and as such requires an individual with gravitas, a highly talented and impactful operations professional with the capability to drive business transformation.  An articulate, charismatic and commercially minded business leader you will be equally adept managing hands on operational activities and making long term strategic decisions.  Naturally you will be very comfortable working within complex matrix operations, have a track record of leading multi-disciplinary teams and driving change programs.  In order to succeed in our fast paced and intricate environment, you must also demonstrate a high level of mental agility and dexterity.

Your specific sector experience is of less importance to us than your functional and leadership expertise, although you will be familiar working within a regulated and professional environment and any exposure to the medical/pharmaceutical/nutrition/healthcare sectors would be welcomed.

To apply please follow the Apply link below to send your application to our retained executive search consultant, Sam Meakin at Medtech Executive Search Ltd.
