Senior Vice President – Supply Chain
To £130,000pa + executive benefits
A Supply Chain guru with experience of managing an E2E Supply Chain at a global level, is sought by a leading conglomerate with a world-wide presence.
This high-profile role necessitates a Senior Supply Chain expert who is used to operating at board level and who has a proven track record of setting strategies and re-structuring business processes at both commercial and operational levels.
Primarily, your remit will be to lead the supply chain function at a divisional level; designing and implementing processes and standards whilst influencing and driving change across both internal and external stakeholders and a well-established team, all of which are based across multiple sites on a global scale. Additionally, you will oversee the division’s internal freight management business that supplies a successful freight service to internal and external customers.
It’s a given that applicants need experience in:
• driving change and influencing stakeholders
• multi-modal international logistics (air, sea, road and rail freight), warehouse, distribution, customs and project management.
• managing a multi-location business with an international footprint along with an understanding of varying legal and cultural requirements
• budgetary, financial KPIs and FX management – this role will involve taking responsibility for a revenue / operating budget in excess of £145m
A degree is essential as are good skills in KANBAN / CI / LEAN / SIGMA and an understanding of VMI. An APICS Supply Chain or ISM certificate or equivalent would be a distinct advantage as would an interest in freight forwarding / international trade, which is perhaps indicated by your membership of professional bodies such as BIFA, CILT, the Institute of Export etc.
This role will be based in the Worcestershire area, but extensive international travel is to be expected.
