Are you ready to make a major impact in the UK manufacturing sector? Our client is a hyper-growth business looking for a Supply Chain Planner to join their team and support their continued expansion.


This is an incredible opportunity to work in a small team responsible for managing the end-to-end physical supply chain from China to the UK and warehousing, logistics, and delivery to customers. You will play a vital role in supporting the growth of the business, which is anticipated to reach an astounding 500% per annum.


As the Supply Chain Plannning Analyst, you will work closely with the Supply & Operations Director to deliver accurate and reliable supply chain planning and coordination. This will include setting up effective Sales and Operations Planning (S&OP), stock optimisation, and buying and expediting from our sister business in China. Your primary responsibility will be to build stock management and tracking tools that balance demand and production and calculate requirements, issuing and expediting supply orders.


In addition to these responsibilities, you will also have the opportunity to play a critical role as the business invests c£50m in UK production over the next 2-3 years. This will involve sourcing components locally in the UK and manufacturing products in-house.


Your data analysis and Excel skills will also be crucial in supporting forecasting and tracking market trends and market share. You will work closely with the Sales Team to create forecasts based on customer orders, industry installation data, and market trends. You will then convert these forecasts into stock and supply planning requirements and liaise closely with our sister company in China to place, manage and expedite production orders on time.


As a Supply Chain Planning Analyst, you will manage daily customer order allocation, effectively managing forecast and factory orders, balancing actual customer orders, and allocating products to stock. You will also liaise with the China Factory Team twice weekly to track orders through the production process and understand production slots and any changes to set shipment dates and arrival dates in the UK.


The successful candidate will have a university degree or MSc, with English language skills being essential. You will also need to have excellent, expert-level Excel and data modelling experience and be able to build complex tools. Chinese language skills, would be advantageous but not essential - experience of liaising with Far East manufacturing and planning imports would be more important.

As the business is in its early stages, you will have a unique opportunity to create robust systems and procedures to support future growth. As such, you’ll need to be adaptable to cope with rapidly changing situations.


This is a unique opportunity to join a hyper-growth business and majorly impact the UK manufacturing sector. We want to hear from you if you have the skills and experience we are looking for and are ready to take on this exciting role!
