  • Is Supply Chain & Logistics your absolute passion?

  • Have you worked either in food / drink manufacturing or finished goods in the crazy world that is FMCG?

  • Do you long to work for an entrepreneurial business where you can roll your sleeves up, get stuck in and really make a difference?

    If so, we’d love to hear from you as our client is looking to recruit a Supply Chain Manager to join their business, who supply the major retailers & supermarkets, to be based in the West Midlands.

    A traditional job description doesn’t do this amazing company justice so in summary, here is what you need to know:

  • Product is manufactured in the Far East, so you are responsible from the moment stock arrives in to the UK, through to the customers receiving it.
  • Responsible for supply as well as demand planning, ensuring that stock arrives on time and in full.
  • Working to long lead times, total accuracy with numbers is essential, as well as great communication skills as you will be dealing with suppliers in a different time zone where English is not their first language. Written as well as verbal communication must be right first time.
  • In a business that is growing at a phenomenal pace, you will be responsible for developing & growing the team around you. A team where Supply Chain is at the heart of everything.
  • Project management is essential.


As the Supply Chain Manager, you will need to have the following:

  • Educated to degree level.

  • A proven track record of working in a fast paced FMCG business.

  • A solid understanding of supply planning, demand planning, as well as understanding the export and importing of finished goods.

  • You must be able to roll your sleeves up and get stuck in. This is not a business where people stand on ceremony and think “that’s not part of my job”. This is a business that you can help shape and grow with, but you need to flexible, have an entrepreneurial way of thinking and you need to have demonstrated these values previously.

  • Commercially astute.

    So, if you are as excited reading this as I am about writing it, then submit your CV straight away. There is a tight deadline and that’s COP Friday 4th May 2018. Can’t wait to hear from you!
