Summary

Feel like an entrepreneur ready to take on Dragon’s Den?

Job Description

You want to be involved in a fast-moving and exciting startup. But it can be hard to create your own business from scratch. So what’s the answer?  Skip the Den and join this business now.

Why? You will experience eye-watering growth (50% YoY), partnership with the "next big thing" in UK food retailing, and state-of-the-art systems. The foundations have been put in place and the stress and worries have already happened - this is all about the growth phase.

In this Procurement & Logistics Manager position you will work closely with Ashley, the new Packing Manager and the MD, Arthur. The beauty of working for a business like this is there is no red tape - if you think you can improve something, improve it.

Another good thing? Sometimes cash is in short supply in start-ups like this meaning systems are lacking and resulting in you being given information you know can’t be right. Not here, the recently implemented upgraded software system has fully integrated the entire business giving you confidence that what you are seeing on the screen is completely accurate.

You may harbour desires to manage a team, if so this is a great stepping stone for you to get people management experience as you will be responsible for one member of staff.

Be realistic as to what it is like working for a small business with ambitious growth – plans can change by the minute which means you will need to quickly understand why decisions have been made.

You know what it’s like to procure stock in a fast-moving sector. Even better if you’ve worked in the food industry.
