I am working on a new role with a prestigious personal care brand that are market leading in the professional industry, and are becoming ever more prevalent within the consumer market.

This is a very exciting time to join the business as they have been acquired by a global fmcg organistaion, so whilst the culture is still that of a small and close knit team, there is the opportunity to develop this role significantly to develop more sophisticated supply chain processes.

I'm looking for an experienced people manager who has a mix of warehouse and demand planning experience. This position is managing a team of three. The role has a strong focus on demand planning, but to succeed in this role you’ll have to have an excellent understanding of the flow of stock through a warehouse.

Key responsibilities:

* Drive overall planning for UK and Ireland across retail, distribution and E-commerce channels

* Guide the forecasting and purchasing team to support all supply chain activities across UK and Ireland

* Lead collaborative meetings across marketing, sales, international and the distribution teams to pro-actively determine future stock needs

* Manage the order of stock from the USA

* Drive stock reduction projects whilst ensuring stock availability to all markets

* Identify and implement opportunities to reduce overall supply chain costs and improve collaboration, and supply chain strategies

Experience required

*Demonstrable experience in managing and developing a team

* Experience working in a warehouse, or working very closely with a distribution centre is essential for this role

* Prior experience in demand planning / forecasting is a must. Prior experience in working directly with the customer is highly beneficial

* A broad knowledge of the end-end supply chain

Other skills / abilities

* Pro-active and forward thinking. Able to reinvent

* Confident and not afraid to challenge the status quo

* Fantastic leader and relationship builder

* Credible in knowledge and style
