Keeping track of stock is an essential part of any business, and this is especially true in the manufacturing industry where levels of raw materials and components must be carefully monitored to ensure that production can continue unimpeded.
This is the role of a materials manager. The person in this position is responsible for maintaining accurate and sufficient inventories and working with other teams to anticipate changes in demand - such as seasonal fluctuations or increases caused by new marketing campaigns.
Depending on the company and the job specification, tasks will involve overseeing stocks and taking steps to quickly and efficiently deal with problems. You will also need to ensure storage facilities comply with hygiene standards, health and safety protocols and internal company policies.
As materials manager, you may be responsible for various procurement or logistics jobs, such as ordering supplies, organising transport and dealing with shipments and helping to resolve issues with short or wrong deliveries.
Anyone seeking to take on a role as a materials manager should have strong interpersonal, communication and supervisory skills are all essential, and you should be able to analyse situations and plan effectively based on the available research and evidence.
You should also be comfortable using relevant computer technology, such as spreadsheet and database programs as well as enterprise resource planning (ERP) software.

Nestled between Inverness-shire and the county of Moray is Nairnshire, a historic county that’s now part of the greater Highland council area. Its focal point is the town of Nairn on its northern coast. The county is served by the east-west railway that joins Aberdeen to Inverness, and also the A96 and A939. To the south of the county is the beautiful Cairngorms National Park. The county town of Nairn is a seaside resort and fishing port, with a harbour that was built by engineer Thomas Telford.
Nairnshire is not particularly highly populated and prospects for upper-level logistics and supply chain work such as Materials Manager jobs are in line with this. However with Inverness just down the road, there could be more opportunities there.
