To drive improvement opportunities and promote continuous improvement across site, while working with all key stakeholders and to develop and implement a strategy for materials ensuring continuous improvement in costs and quality

Client Details

I've exclusively partnered up with one Barnsley most recognised manufacturing businesses, as we look to recruit a Senior Materials Planner. Market leaders within their field, they have an ever-growing customer portfolio and are best known for providing high quality products equipped with an excellent service. Due to an internal restructure and plans for large amounts of growth throughout 2019, we are looking at strengthening their supply chain team. Managing a high demand of orders, they manufacture products at an extremely high pace, dealing with thousands of SKU's.


As the Senior Materials Planner you will be responsible for the following:

  • Responsible for all Materials processes within the business
  • Identification and implementation of Lean loyal Supply chain
  • Direct reports of Materials Schedulers and Stores Cell Leaders
  • The implementation and maintenance of accurate perpetual stock counting and control
  • BOM review and management
  • Collection and analysis of data and reporting KPI
  • Establish and Monitor Material Variance ensuring compliance is achieved
  • Review of Supplier performance and agreements to ensure cost effective supply
  • MRP Management tracking usage and demand for JIT

I'm looking to speak with skilled supply chain professionals who have experience working in manufacturing, ideally within a fast-paced environment. Previous experience within a leadership role would also be ideal as you will have responsibility over two Materials Planners, however it isn't essential. What is essential is that you have a good understanding of MRP systems and knowledge around Kan Ban's and stock order systems.

Please see a list of desired key skills and qualities for the Senior Materials Planner role below:

  • Proactive positive attitude with a desire to want to improve and do things better
