A blank canvas. A clean slate. Nobody's "shoes to fill".
However you want to describe it, the opportunity to leave a lasting legacy in a Supply Chain department is something that will appeal to the sort of person this company wants to hire.
You would be able to use your transferable skills in Procurement Management or Supply Chain Management from any high-volume FMCG business here, as food manufacturing experience isn't a prerequisite.
The fact that you are very comfortable using a variety of ERP / MRP systems would allow you to make the changes needed to develop the procurement and planning functions here.
The senior management team wants this person to improve communication between the departments reporting to them and for clarity and consistency in the presentation of important information that can influence their decisions. That wouldn't be a problem for you, as that comes with the territory.
It's the commercially astute (value, not just price) decision-making autonomy you will be given here that will keep your interest in the role long-term, because it would really be your department, not an offshoot of someone else's.
£50,000 - £60,000 base, car allowance, bonus, pension, private medical, private dental. An opportunity for you to cover yourself in glory.
Sounds good? Then click apply, and I will give you a call.
