Supply Chain Manager | Fresh Food | Central London
Our client is a well regarded fresh food business who are looking to appoint an experienced Supply Chain Manager into their team. They deal with countries all around the world and it is key to their business to ensure product moves from A to B in a timely and cost effective way. This role will ensure that the core areas operate smoothly and that they are always looking at ways to improve their ways of working. They have the opportunity to move some structures around a bit, so they are looking for people with an open mind.
You will be liaising with their suppliers around the world, predominantly in Africa, South America and Asia, in order to ensure they have the product required to meet their orders.
You will be a key link within the business for both the commercial teams but also external suppliers.
You will be managing the supply chain from end to end, ultimately supplying product into the major retailers.
There will be a requirement for customer facing experience as well to ensure the best information is available at all times.
Experience with a short shelf product would be very beneficial. Whether this is chilled food or fresh produce. They are open minded on the level of experience you come in with whether it be 1-2 years or 10+.
The knowledge of how product moves around the world is important. Experience of Air Freight and Sea Freight is crucial.
In addition to the supply chain elements, any experience in Procurement and/or Commercial would be a real bonus.
