STRATEGIST - PROCUREMENT CATEGORY MANAGEMENT & PLANNING
£/€Very Competitive Bonus Blue Chip Benefits
Location: Flexible/Hybrid Role - UK, Netherlands, or Germany
"It's a slightly unusual role".
And that's a great way of summarising this position for our client. They're a well-established organisation in the specialist renewables and power generation industry that wants to become "best-in-class" in terms of its procurement process.
As part of this strategic development plan, they would like to appoint a Category Management Specialist to sit within their large pan European procurement team. The main focus of this role is to work alongside each Category Manager to help them develop longer-term procurement strategies for each category.
As such, you'll be mentoring, coaching, and developing the category management team to help them think differently and innovate new ideas. This may take the form of working one-to-one with the managers or running workshops to create an open culture of collaboration between the team.
So, they're looking for a category management expert who's used to working in a blue-chip, world-class procurement function and can bring new ideas into the company. Experience of working in the power generation industry is not essential, and they're open to considering candidates from any highly regulated industry in the public or commercial sector such as utilities, defence, aerospace, chemicals, automotive, FMCG as long as it's within a multinational matrix structure with a substantial procurement and category management function. Candidates who combine in house and leading procurement consultancy backgrounds would also be very interesting
Your personality will be a deciding factor in this role, as you'll need the drive and desire to develop a high-performing team. You'll be a natural people-person who can connect with colleagues to help them become the best versions of themselves. In addition, you'll have the vision and the presentation skills to convey it to the team and get them excited about the levels they can achieve. Career development prospects are excellent.
This role can be based at any of our client's business units in the UK (North West or Buckinghamshire), Germany (Lower Saxony), and the Netherlands (Overijssel).
Candidates should be university degree/Masters degree educated ideally with a professional procurement/purchasing qualification such as CIPS or equivalent.
It really is a unique role, but it's going to be a rewarding one for the right candidate. As you can imagine, there's plenty more detail to discuss about this role, so please indicate your interest by emailing your CV, quoting reference LX 1175876
Warehouse & Distribution Manager
C£45-50000 + Bonus + Benefits
Commutable from Gloucester, Worcester, Pershore, Bredon, Tewkesbury, Evesham, Cheltenham, Ashchurch, Ledbury, Ross on Wye, Stroud, Nailsworth, Cirencester, Malvern, Leominster, Redditch, Bromsgrove
As an experienced Warehouse and Distribution manager, how often have you gone into a role where you can make massive, positive changes?
Maybe you've worked in previous roles where you knew the company's systems could be much better if you were allowed to use your skills.
This is that elusive role.
Our client is a privately owned business who've been trading successfully for almost 30 years. They're a manufacturer and wholesaler of high-end, fixed installation, domestic products, with their own manufacturing facility in China.
Historically, their routes to market have been through merchants and retail stockists. However, they've now moved into the specification world and supply developers for larger-scale commercial and residential projects.
Their new CEO is focused on growth and has facilitated the development of new products, which have been very well received by the market.
So, they're setting the scene for significant growth and success.
However, their warehousing and distribution systems need a significant overhaul. And that's where you come in with your skills and ambition to create a world-class operation, almost from scratch.
You'll work closely with the new Supply Chain Director to implement an effective warehouse management system to complement their existing ERP platform. A core part of that process will be creating process maps of the order profiles, flows and layout of the warehouse to choose the correct warehouse management system. The warehouse regularly receives imports/containers from its China manufacturing facility.
In addition, you'll be leading the day-to-day operations in the warehouse, including managing a team of distributors and drivers and liaising with a 3PL provider.
The overall focus for this role is to future-proof the company for its future growth plans, which will include reviewing the structure of its delivery fleet and distribution operation. So, you'll be able to draw on your experience in distribution management to facilitate that and liaise with third party transport pallet and carrier networks.
They will also likely need to alter their current day shift. So, you'll also need to run a performance review of this pattern and productivity levels to ensure OTIF, based on the best methods of goods receipt, put away, replenishment, picking, order preparation, loading vans and ensuring there is staff cover. This may include negotiations with staff over hours and terms and conditions. As such, you'll be able to use your first-class people management and communication skills to introduce those changes.
As for your background, our client expects you will have significant experience in operational warehousing and logistics, ideally within a UK B2B business. Plus, with safety being a prime concern, you'll need to show proven leadership in Health and Safety (IOSH / NEBOSH qualified).
Ultimately, you'll thrive on the challenge of transforming a warehouse and distribution facility to create a future-proofed, world-class operation.
As you can imagine, there are many other details to discuss. So please indicate your interest by emailing your CV, LX 1182461 or call us on 01905 381 320.
"Transformational change and leadership role for Lean Manufacturing Specialist"
c£55000 + Benefits
Commutable from: Clevedon, Nailsea, Bristol, Glastonbury, Weston super Mare, Burnham on Sea, Bridgwater, Cheddar, Portishead, Yatton, Highbridge, Long Ashton, Keynsham, Bath, Shepton Mallett, Frome, Radstock, Midsomer Norton, Paulton, Peasedown St John
Are you an experienced Manufacturing Manager looking for a new challenge to test your leadership skills?
Maybe you'd like to use your knowledge of change management and lean implementation to make a real difference to a company?
Our client is looking for someone with those skills to lead their manufacturing operation and play a crucial part in evolving their business.
They're a well-established company manufacturing large GRP fabrications globally for use in industrial and commercial settings. Bucking the trend, they thrived during the Covid pandemic and have an extensive R & D and investment programme underway.
So, they have significant plans to evolve the company and are currently in a transitional phase.
This is where you come in.
The company's growth plans rely on having the necessary labour resources on-site, so they have gained visa sponsorship status, allowing them to bring in skilled labour from other countries.
Therefore, you'll need the gravitas of a strong leader and be able to demonstrate your previous experience in managing a diverse, multicultural workforce. In addition, you will need to develop, coach, and mentor shop floor leaders to help you manage the growing team.
You'll be able to use your past experience of lean implementation to its fullest by leading lean improvement projects and applying best practices throughout the manufacturing operations. Your knowledge and skills in collecting and analysing data will be vital to your success in this role. And, to help with that data acquisition, our client is currently implementing a new ERP system which you will lead into the manufacturing part of the business. Six Sigma Green Belt would be highly advantageous but our client will support accreditation if you have the experience.
This role is entirely site-based. So ideal commuting locations include Bristol, Somerset, West Wiltshire. However, our client will consider relocation assistance for the perfect candidate who wants to move to this beautiful part of the UK.
If you feel this is the next role for you, please submit your CV, quoting reference 1044279 or call us on 44 (0)1905 381 320.

Our client is a highly successful LLP (Limited Liability Partnership) with this rare opportunity.
You’ll have already noticed that this role is advertised as a part-time position, and they’re happy to structure it around your preferences. So, if you want to fit around school hours or work 3-4 full days per week, they’re open to discussing that with you.
For a little background, our client is an LLP that provides consultancy services using a project-based model. As such, you will need to show experience of having worked within a commercial, rather than public sector, environment.
Following a restructure, they have recently outsourced their transactional accounting but wish to appoint an experienced financial accountant with management accounting experience to join their team as Finance Manager. This newly created role will give them greater visibility and transparency of their financial position at both an operational and strategic level.
Coupled with that, they need a Finance Manager to work with the Partners and Commercial Director to translate the financial data into meaningful information for budgeting and forecasting. They use Xero, and a crucial part of your role will be in training/coaching the staff to use the system effectively.
As such, you’ll need a confident personality who is happy to challenge ideas and practices in the company’s best interests.
Alongside those higher-level activities, you will also need to manage the day-to-day transactional work. As an experienced Finance Manager, you will already understand what those entail, and we can cover those details when we speak.
Ideally you will be of graduate calibre and fully qualified CIMA, ACCA, ACA, FCCA, or equivalent experience as both a financial accountant and a management accountant.
This finance management experience must have been gained within a blue chip multinational matrix environment.
