Pod is partnering a disruptive and innovative business centred in the packaging space. With huge amounts of growth on the horizon and venturing into new and exciting e-com platforms, this company also had a record year in terms of sales in 2016 and are forecasting more of the same for the foreseeable.

We are on the hunt for a new Supply Chain Manager to join the team. This is a highly pivotal and visible role reporting to the General Manager and heading up the full e2e SC and procurement function. This role will initially have 3 direct planning reports which is likely to increase to 5 with growth and investment in the team. The core goal of this role is to optimise the balance between service to customers and maximising profit on every interaction in the complete supply chain and procurement process.

There are seven key deliverables/measures of success for this role:

*Make inventory intelligent

*Regain the trust of suppliers

*Collaborate with sales

*SLOB reduction

*Relationship development

*S&OP process establishment and development

*Team leadership

Main Activities:

Supplier management: developing the e2e SC and procurement strategy with core and new suppliers. The core range of suppliers is currently sitting around the 6 mark and these are predominantly based internationally in Eastern Europe and Asia.

Stock management: establishment and development of monthly S&OP to build a monthly business forecast with a 12 month outlook. Develop the SLOB management process to eradicate dead stock. Establish and lead a Stock Code programme.

Buying & negotiating: this includes the purchasing of all materials within the packaging space

Internal collaboration: forge key relationships with Sales, Product Development and Customer Services to ensure pricing updates, changes, stock queries and trialling of new products.

Team leadership: organisation of the whole supply chain team, creating vision, long-term strategy and individual personal development plans.

Desired Competencies:

Entrepreneurial spirit: understands the commercial needs of the business, is happy with a blank piece of paper, and is comfortable with perceived risk while desiring to build something new and different.

Goal & action orientated: align key objectives with senior leaders and come up with a plan that works, is easily communicable to the team and is measurable to achieve success.

Excellent communication skills: able to represent supply chain, procurement and the company effectively to a variety of audiences from supplier to customers and everything in between.

Commercial prowess: identify and maximise commercial opportunities for supply chain, paying particular attention to technological innovation and e-com opportunities.

Strategic thinking: possessing the ability to consider out of the box and innovative solutions to business problems. Provide thought leadership beyond simple operational capabilities.

Team leadership: able to build and empower the right group of people to deliver on the company’s long-term plans.

You will have strong experience managing a team and a minimum of 5 years’ experience within the supply chain and procurement space. If you’re energised and engaged by the above, don’ t delay your application as we have a timeline in place for interviews in October.
