Group M P and L Manager - Bracknell
Group M, P & L Manager jobs
Materials, planning and logistics (M, P & L) management involves visualising entire supply chain and logistics operations as a whole and using this oversight to determine the direction of the various elements of the process. The ultimate aim of the M, P & L manager will be to maintain customer satisfaction and seek out efficiencies in the way the operation is run.
Supply chains are run by dedicated teams, each with their own specific areas, such as transport, warehousing and procurement. Left to their own devices they might run efficiently enough, but there could be issues regarding their interrelation and interactivity that generate inefficiencies. An example would be timing, where a component is processed more quickly than is required, which can actually cost money in terms of storage while it waits for the next step to be ready. It might be more efficient to slow this part of the process down and eliminate warehousing altogether.
By viewing the process as a self-sufficient organism, the M, P and L manager will be able to benefit from the zoomed-out view. The staff working within the links of the chain will not benefit from this view, but with good management they can all be brought into line for the benefit of the whole process.
The skills required
The most important personal characteristic will be a good business mind. Influencing the supply chain will, in effect, be the same as running a business, even though it will be part of a larger whole. That means that all the skills expected of the successful businessperson will need to be present in the group M, P & L manager, namely people management, an ability to analyse and understand often complex data, excellent communication skills and an instinct for organisation and micromanagement that will keep everything running smoothly and efficiently.
Ideally, the bulk of the communication will be with the customers and the elements of the chain, rather than the senior management of the company. The M, P and L manager will be expected to run his or her own office to the overall direction of the head office but with minimal contact. A strong an trustworthy personality will therefore be required.

Group M P and L Manager Jobs in Bracknell
The Berkshire town of Bracknell is located at the centre of a cross with Farnborough, Reading, Maidenhead and the western tip of London as its points. It is located between the A308(M) and the M3, which run parallel to its north and south respectively.
Bracknell has a long and rich history, with mentions in the Domesday Book and Bronze Age finds there. Locals like to believe it was a favourite haunt of highwayman Dick Turpin, and there was supposed to be a secret tunnel between two inns via which he could escape capture. There must be something in the water, as a band of marauders known as the Wokingham Blacks had been terrorising the forest area; they were finally brought to justice by the Grenadier Guards in 1723. After World War 2, Bracknell was designated as a location for a New Town, and in the intervening decades the town’s population grew from a few thousand to its current total of around 50,000.
Commercially, the town is rather successful, and many multinationals have set up offices there, particularly in the hi-tech and electronics sectors. The list includes Fujitsu, Panasonic, Hewlett-Packard, Dell, Siemens, Cable and Wireless, 3M and Novell. The headquarters of Supermarket Waitrose and the UK arm of BMW are also in Bracknell.
Bracknell is a thriving town, where great jobs in logistics, supply chain and procurement such as Group M P and L Manager positions are often found. Its excellent links to London and the whole of South England, as well as Heathrow Airport, are no doubt parts of the decision when companies choose to locate there.
