This is a large retail group with a commanding position in its niche market. The company has a large national network of stores, together with a sophisticated multi-channel service offering for internet-based fulfilment. It is well established, profitable and ambitious - and is continually looking to improve & develop its supply chain. In this role you will lead the company's development programme for logistics, working very closely with the Supply Chain Director. These projects will cut across the entire supply chain, from import & supplier management, through storage and third-party management, to network development and warehouse design. This will involve the leadership of a small team, and close interface with a broad cross section of the business. You will be required to drive and manage your own agenda, with support from the leadership team, and be fully accountable for the delivery of process improvement across the end-to-end supply chain. Your background will be in retail logistics - either 3PL or in-house retail - and ideally you will have a mix of development/project work and some operational experience. The company's head office is London, where you will be expected to spend 2/3 days per week. That aside you will run a flexible schedule with some travel to distribution centres around the UK.
