S&OP Manager

My client is an SME B2B manufacturer, supplying their innovative product into a mix of both SME and blue-chip customers, with high product mix complexity and demand signal volatility.


The successful candidate for this exciting brand-new S&OP Manager position will have the following responsibilities:

  • Ensure a robust and effective process for capturing current demand (volume and value) and to support commercial teams in optimising the business P&L.
  • Ensure a robust process for converting the demand signal to the required formats for effective supply chain management from inbound requests, to manufacturing & distribution.
  • Own and deliver the sales/demand forecast accuracy over the short, medium- & long-term horizon.
  • Collate market intelligence and assumptions from Marketing and Sales to build a rolling 36-month demand plan, utilising statistical models for base sales, modelling promotional activity and capturing NPD launches to support the innovation plan.
  • As leader of the monthly business planning process, provide transparency of business performance against key assumptions, metrics and milestones.
  • Support the supply review process so that there is clarity of progress versus milestones and an effective capacity management process is in place.
  • Develop a community of facilitators so that information flows effectively between the functions.


My FMCG client based in Nottinghamshire have limited in-house knowledge and experience of S&OP processes, alongside limited IT system & process support. They rely heavily on long-standing employee knowledge and spreadsheets, so first-class interpersonal skills and patience are needed to introduce positive change.

The successful candidate will have strong supply chain planning experience, alongside first-in class S&OP knowledge gained within manufacturing environments. You will have previous experience of working in cross-functional teams and demonstrable team leadership capability.

You will be a real change agent and demonstrable ability to engage and influence a broad spectrum of colleagues across hierarchies.
