Group M P and L Manager - Halifax
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 Halifax
A minister town in West Yorkshire, located to the south west of Bradford, Halifax is a good choice for those seeking Group M P and L Manager opportunities.
From the 15th century, the town was an important location for the manufacture of wool and cloth. The textile industry continued to thrive through the 19th century, although most of the wealth that came to the town during this period was derived from cotton instead of wool.
In 1853, a building and investment society was formed in the city, which would later become known as the Halifax bank. It's now part of the Lloyds Banking Group and operates mainly from London.
Halifax has also been known for its confectionary production since the late 1890s when John Mackintosh and his wife started selling toffee from a shop in the town centre.
The business quickly expanded and resulted in a number of brands that are still popular today, such as Rolo, Toffee Crisp and Quality Street. Now owned by Nestle, which is based in York, a factory continues to operate in Halifax, churning out millions of tasty treats every year.
Today, the town's economy is mainly based in the retail and service sectors. A number of large business parks have been developed in the region - such as Dean Clough, which is located on the site of what was once the world's largest carpet factory. It provides workspace for SMEs and larger organisations ranging from IT and media companies, as well as financial services and healthcare facilities.
