Contract Type
A newly created Supply Chain Manager role has been created for a manufacturing business in the Mansfield area. This is a really good opportunity for someone who has gained good Supply Chain/Logistics experience within the manufacturing sector and who also has good supervisory capabilities. Your management skills will be put to good use managing a small group of supervisors who in turn manage their own teams. You’ll need to be a good motivator who understands development needs and how to get the best from people. This hands on role will see you being very operational on a daily basis but will also need you to utilise your strategic mindset to make sure the bigger picture and longer term achievements are aligned with the wider business. This role will see the right person having responsibility for the logistics requirements of the business namely looking at the goods in and out process. You will work closely with all raw materials and stock ensuring everything coming into and leaving the site is accounted for, that leakage is minimised and that stock movement runs smoothly. Ongoing analysis will be required and reports produced for both your own use and for distribution within the wider business. Existing processes for all of the above will need to be reviewed and potentially updated as well as looking at implementing new procedures. Interaction with Purchasing will also form part of your requirements so as to ensure the best cost efficiencies are achieved by having the right suppliers in place. This opportunity can very much be considered a ‘carte blanche’ in terms of the scope and potential so therefore should be seen as an amazing opportunity to enhance your existing career and skill set. Who should apply? The client is looking for someone who has: solid manufacturing experience; excellent supervisory skills; a good amount of practical knowledge within the supply chain and logistics arena. For those of you studying towards CIPS or other recognised qualification, there is scope for the client to provide support towards this. Chase and Holland acts as an employment agency for permanent recruitment and an employment business for the supply of temporary workers. We specialise in Finance and HR recruitment and comfortably service the South Yorkshire, Derbyshire , Nottinghamshire , Leicestershire , Staffordshire and Lincolnshire marketplaces.
