Group M P and L Manager - Wallasey
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 Wallasey
After years of sailing the seven seas and bringing back cargoes and unlikely tales, the upper ranks of the merchant and military navies wanted somewhere pleasant to live, and if they weren’t fed up of the sea, one such place might have been Wallasey. The town at the northern tip of the Wirral, opposite Liverpool, sprung up for just this reason, and it was full of large homes for such seamen to retire to. The town had a small presence already in the shape of a fort and lighthouse, both to protect the port, but it was barely inhabited. New Brighton, the most resort-like part, was named after Brighton on the south coast, and it was hoped that it would emulate its success.
Wallasey’s population of around 60,000 is well connected by road, rail and sea. The M53 to Chester starts in the town and the Kingsway tunnel (known locally as the Wallasey Tunnel) picks up at the same point. By rail Wallasey is linked to Liverpool, the Wirral, North Wales and Chester, and the Mersey Ferry crosses from Wallasey’s Seacombe terminal (as well as Birkenhead). Birkenhead and Wallasey would now probably be completely merged were it not for the dock that stretches 2600 metres inland.
Wallasey is now an integral part of the Liverpool and Birkenhead conurbation, and it is no longer a retreat for retired seamen, with most of their houses being converted into bed and breakfasts or flats long ago. The town’s economy is now linked with those of its neighbouring towns and Liverpool, and that is not bad news for anyone looking for Group M P and L Manager work, as the region still has plenty of manufacturing and distribution industry.
