We are delighted to be working with a fast-paced, global food business, whose brands are instantly recognisable in European households, in their search for a head of supply chain.

The role will manage the end to end supply chain including S&OP, demand planning, supply planning, production, logistics and customer services, managing a total team of around 10 people. We're looking for an ambitious, driven and technical supply chain leader who loves to solve problems and make supply chains improvements, whilst engaging and developing their team.

The role will involve:

  • Ownership of the S&OP process - with responsibility for driving a programme of enhancements

  • Managing an upcoming ERP upgrade and leadership of the digital agenda for supply chain - investing in new processes and tools to deliver better results

  • Management of the supply, demand and logistics teams

  • Working with the commercial team and executive team on planning European growth and supply chain roadmaps

  • Driving service, cost and inventory KPIs

  • The role will sit on the Supply Chain & Operations leadership team in Europe

We are looking for:

  • An ambitious and improvement driven supply chain leader with experience in the food or FMCG industry

  • You'll have strong S&OP/demand planning experience as well as experience in a manufacturing focused business, with experience working with and managing relationships with factories either internally or externally

  • Broad end to end supply chain experience including demand, supply and logistics. You'll be customer centric and enjoy engaging with customers.

  • Someone who builds great relationships internally, has strong influencing skills and can work with key stakeholders both internally and externally.
