We are partnering one of the most ingenious, taste-centric and inspiring food businesses on the UK manufacturing scene and are very excited to present this pivotal role leading the supply chain team. With huge investment in a brand spanking new manufacturing site and posting growth of 35% last year, this is a truly great time to join a business who will continue to go from strength to strength in their niche market category.

Quality is the kernel of the business’s mission and that is reflected in everything from the raw ingredients to the manufacturing process and ultimately in the finished, premium food on-shelf. We are not just looking for a Supply Chain Manager to simply turn the operational handle; we are looking for a visionary leader who can define the future direction of the supply chain function in conjunction with the vastly increased capacity and who is an S&OP expert within a pacy, short shelf-life and ideally chilled supply chain operation.

As an intensely values-driven business, caring about the quality of job you do and the impact your actions will have on the needs of others has to be inherent in your character. This is an open and honest culture where people treat their peers with respect and hold face-to-face engagement and development very dearly. They have long-term goals which reflect their passion for sustainable growth and are striving to be one of the best companies to work for as well as having the ambition to become one of Britain’s best-loved food brands.

You will be/have responsibility for:
  • Dual-location e2e S&OP process development and leadership
  • Leadership and development of a dedicated planning team of 7 direct reports
  • Overseeing and evolving short, medium and long-term capacity plans
  • Collaboration with the Operational business leaders to design and implement a production scheduling system, process and plan
  • 3rd party logistics relationship maintenance/development and storage

You will be/have:
  • Supply Chain planning management experience in an fmcg environment this is truly fast-paced and innovative. Chilled food experience is highly desirable
  • Strong track-record in team leadership and development- remote man management would also be preferable
  • Grocer customer-collaboration experience alongside production planning systems implementation
  • Enthusiastic, dynamic and honest. You have a ‘one-team’ approach and enjoy forging constructive relationships with peers and reports
  • Analytical mind with outstanding problem-solving abilities

If this sounds like your next dream job, don’t delay your application as we are keen to get moving with the process swiftly. We are working on this role in exclusive partnership with the business and have a wealth of knowledge and further information on this opportunity, so, if you would be keen to have a conversation before making your application, get in touch with NJ Harris to discuss.
