Change: 1. make (someone or something) different; alter or modify. A strange thing to ask for when they are the most successful of unique UK food company.
Change - there are few things that seem so simple on paper and so complicated in reality, especially in a fast-paced food production environment. Even more so with a business that has quadrupled its employee base and seen a tenfold revenue increase over the last few years.
A good example of change in action is the fact that this role (and business) really embrace flexible working - not all operations do. This role will be one to two days onsite (more if you want) with the rest wherever you want to be.
It might seem odd to actively seek more change when they are doing so well but that is exactly what this business is looking to do with this role. They have seen ongoing commercial wins recently through embracing change and are now looking to replicate this in their supply chain, through unrivalled use of data.
Change is actively being sought. So, if you've ever felt the frustrations of knowing you could improve a planning process then now is your chance to make your mark as everything is being looked at and questioned - "how can we make this better?"
What are they looking for? Due to the complexity of their operation, you will need to be a Planning Manager expert with significant FMCG material flow understanding and experience. You should also be able to demonstrate a track record of improvement in these areas.
Not everyone likes change. But if you do, this is a great opportunity to impart your sense of best practise within a business that is hungry for learning new ways of working.
