Exciting new team, utilise your supply chain experience in food manufacturing to support this business in its growth and be part of the success...

Job Description

Opportunity to join a small food business on the up, a warm, friendly culture that makes you feel part of the team immediately and a facility that has been recently invested in...

This Planning Manager role isn't like any other, firstly you will not be managing full end to end supply chain, this role does not include transport logistics so instead you will be able to focus on raw materials supply chain and production and really become a specialist in these areas. If you love pace, the buzz of ever-changing demands and fluctuations in volumes but no longer want to be a cog in a large business and want to make an impact in a smaller business this role could be for you...

The "usual" responsibilities:

  • Manage, coach and develop a team of two dedicated planning professionals
  • Manage short and long term forecasting
  • Lead and Implement continuous improvement

The above is not dissimilar to any other Planning Manager role, so what is different? Here you are really going to be able to draw upon your skills of leading and developing efficient processes and systems, and utilise tools, methods and expertise to introduce new strategies and improvements to drive business forward. You will enjoy challenging the status quo and will be given the opportunity to put in place KPIs from scratch for inventory, forecasting and supplier management; a blank sheet - so you can really make a mark! From successfully establishing new tools, processes and models, you will deliver optimised efficiencies, product quality and minimised cost alongside exceptional customer service. Be strategic, be creative, support and lead a team through change and you will be able to look back on this business from the day you started 6, 12, 18 months down the line and really feel a sense of team achievement and ownership for what you have done! It doesn't have to be a dream it can be a reality!

Experienced Planning professional required with food manufacturing expertise - apply today!
