Head of Operations and Supply Chain
Our client is a significant player in the food sector and is recognized as a leading business within this market. As part of on-going succession policy, they wish to appoint an experienced Head of Operations and Supply Chain to take their growth to the next stage.
The role will be to manage the entire operation from intake through production and dispatch analyzing all the aspects of the supply chain, critically challenging the processes, seeking continuous improvement whilst delivering to its customers on time and in full to the right quality - so certainly a challenge.
Although the business is performing well and indeed is profitable, the complexity of the supply chain means that there are opportunities to streamline and simplify it, to drive margins harder and further improve the profitability.
The person to take on this role will primarily have to be a natural leader but they will have to be analytical and persuasive and ultimately tough to force through the changes and challenge the status quo.
If you have a strong pedigree in FMCG supply chain or operations and want to take your career to the next level with this forward thinking business then this an extremely creative and supportive environment in which to work, with a reward package structured to attract and motivate the best.
