SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGER
"Creating is the essence of life!" said Julius Caesar. And he may have been right, if a little overdramatic.
Creating something from nothing is a rewarding experience. It's always challenging, but the feeling you get from succeeding is immeasurable.
As a Supply Chain Manager, how many times have you had the opportunity to create a new supply chain practically from scratch?
Probably not many.
But would you like to do so?
Our client needs someone like you to transform their fledgeling supply chain from India and China into a robust, streamlined and professional process.
They are a specialist division of a market-leading group and plc which means they can invest in creating and developing strategic relationships with suppliers.
And that's where you come in.
Using your experience with sourcing mechanically engineered products from the Far East, China, India and other low-cost source countries, you will be able to build and lead their supplier relationships. And, with the components being metallic, you'll be able to draw on your knowledge of commodity pricing and negotiation to support the company's cost reduction plans.
Within the business, you'll be working across other functions such as engineering, design, and quality, so you'll need to be a great communicator and be comfortable operating with all business levels.
As for other requirements, our client would prefer degree-level candidates with a CIPS qualification. However, you must demonstrate experience of your success in working as a Supply Chain Manager, sourcing commodity components from the countries already mentioned.
