Sourcing & Logistics Manager | Manchester | £40,000


Your new company
Following another year of successful financial results, your new company is rapidly expanding and is consequently seeking a Sourcing & Logistics Manager to join the team and make a real impact. The company is based in an ideal location in Manchester with good transport links and free on-site parking.

Your new role
You'll be responsible for improving the company's sourcing and logistics activities and negotiating relationships with suppliers. You will aim to reduce costs associated with using third parties by achieving economies of scale within the business. As part of this, you will develop and implement the most efficient sourcing strategies across numerous business units. Another aspect of your role is to implement and utilise an inventory management process, in turn ensuring that stock levels are accurate at all times. You'll also review alternative suppliers to ensure that the company is receiving goods at the best possible price by using your negotiation skills.

What you'll need to succeed
To be successful in your new role, you will need demonstrable experience of consolidating various sourcing methods across a growing corporate group. You will also have an understanding of sourcing/supplier management and relevant software. You will also have sound project management and leadership abilities, along with the ability to build and sustain lasting relationships. It is also important that you are confident in gathering, analysing and reporting data, so you will also be confident in using MS Excel.

Due to the nature of this role, you will be required to travel across various locations around the nation, so you will possess a driving license. It would be desirable if you are CIPS qualified or have a relevant degree.

What you'll get in return
You will receive £40,000 + a bonus if you hit your KPI + car allowance. There is also free on-site parking, although the site is close to transport links too. You will receive 25 days holiday (plus bank holidays) and after your probation period, you will get your birthday off too! The company will also offer you a life insurance scheme and a pension scheme.
