Group Supply Chain Manager - Southend-on-Sea
Group Supply Chain Manager jobs
As companies grow, change, merge and separate, their needs and management structures change. When they become groups, the management requirements are diverse, as there will be the considerations of several individual businesses to deal with; the efficiency and profitability of each must be maximised from above, with a “big picture” approach.
The group supply chain manager will head up a team of managers, analysts, forecasters and planners who in turn will help to create strategies that will be delivered to the individual parts of the group to put into operation. While there might be the need for some micromanagement, this role will tend to be strategically focused, and will principally be a financial role. However it will also have human resources, legal and compliance duties to adhere to.
In some cases, however, especially when a group’s supply chains are heavily integrated with each other, the group supply chain manager will be in charge of an operation similar to that of a normal supply chain management operation. In these situations they could be more heavily involved with the suppliers and customers, and will treat the individual divisions as a whole, performing planning, warehousing, forecasting and logistics support. The nature of the job will largely depend on the size and nature of the business.
The skills required
Great communication and management skills will be vital elements in the group supply chain manager’s personality and training. They will be dealing with other managers and directors daily, receiving and transmitting targets, budget information and strategic plans, and will be expected to get them across clearly and unambiguously.
When the group supply chain manager has a more hands-on role within the supply chain, he or she must possess an analytical and methodical approach to work. Much of the calculations side of logistics planning will not be in the manager’s daily schedule, but a good knowledge of the IT solutions used will be useful, along with general IT skills such as the solutions found in the office environment. A good grasp of business acumen will be a key skill. The supply chain manager might have a good deal of autonomy and little contact with the board, so being able to treat the chain under his or her control as if it were a self-contained business will help with operations and budgeting.

Group Supply Chain Manager Jobs in Southend-on-Sea
Few towns have names that describe them as perfectly as Southend-on-Sea. The south-facing seaside town is located just over 30 miles (50 km) from the centre of London, where the Thames Estuary meets the North Sea. As towns go, it has relatively large population, well over 100,000, and as well as being a seaside resort, it is home to one of the six airports serving London, the other five being Heathrow, Gatwick, Luton, Stansted and City. As well as the airport, the town is also served by two railway lines and excellent road infrastructure, and the town thrives throughout the year with shopping, entertainment and sport going on.
Southend is traditionally a destination for people from South England, but especially London, to go for a holiday, short break or day out by the sea, and at the height of summer the streets, esplanade and beach are full of fun-seekers.
Because of the large static population and the diversity of the economy, Group Supply Chain Manager jobs quite often come up in Southend-on-Sea. The town has a large town centre and there are trading estates dotted around, with many of the big-name retail brands having a presence here.
