Senior Supply Chain Analyst - Newcastle upon Tyne

Senior Supply Chain Analyst jobs

Every productive enterprise has a unique profile when it comes to supply of materials and customer base. Some will have a large number of suppliers; others will have a handful. Some will have a single customer; others will number their customers in the thousands. Whatever the profile of the business, however, all materials and products will channel through the company’s production units and will be subject to the normal business constraints: supply and demand.

The senior supply chain analyst will be a person of wide experience of regulating the flow of materials and products in response to – or anticipation of – demand. He or she will have access to the whole range of data that predicts demand, such as sales and marketing campaigns, the securing of new customers, seasonal shifts and historical trends. This data will be used to inform the production, procurement, logistics and warehousing departments of the expected demand, and they will be able to use the figures and their own insights to ensure demand is met.

In large companies, assisting the senior supply chain analyst will be a team of analysts, forecasters and planners who will help gather the data and put the resultant changes in productivity into action. The analyst will work on both the long-term and the short to medium term schedules to allow the various parties to plan their workloads and supply requirements as precisely as possible to cut down on over- or under-production.

The skills required

Only those experienced in supply chain analysis will be considered for such a senior role. Whether the applicant requires experience as a manager as well as analysis expertise will depend on the position in question; some training might be given if above average aptitude is displayed in one particular area.

Communication skills will be called upon at every stage of the job. From gathering data, interpreting trends, dealing with the team of analysts and forecasters to delivering presentations, forecasts and instructions to the other players in the company, good, precise communication will help turn the analysis from data on a spreadsheet to money in the bank.

Senior Supply Chain Analyst Jobs in Newcastle upon Tyne

Newcastle upon Tyne has long been an important location in Britain. During Roman times, a fort called Pons Aelius was erected and served as the eastern end of Hadrian's Wall, while the Duke of Normandy built a castle here in 1080.

In the Middle Ages, Newcastle was a fortress on the northern border during the wars against Scotland. By the 16th century, the area had become known for its coal production. The city enjoyed a monopoly on shipping the fuel and thus created a rivalry with other nearby towns like Tyneside and Sunderland.

Printing, glassworks and shipbuilding were a big part of the city's economy as the Industrial Revolution took hold. Then, 19th century innovations such as safety lamps, improved milling techniques, electricity generation and light bulbs paved the way for the city's prosperity.

Of course, you can't forget one of Newcastle's most beloved products: Newcastle Brown Ale. Also known as Newkie Broon, this drink first went into production in 1928 and has been a favourite beverage ever since. Production, however, has been moved to North Yorkshire.

Today, the Tyneside conurbation is among the 10 most populous in the UK, making it a good choice for those seeking new Senior Supply Chain Analyst vacancies.

Heavy industry has declined over the last 50 years, to be replaced mainly with retail and the service sector. Just some of the many companies that are headquartered or have regional offices in the city include Greggs the baker, the Go-Ahead Group, Northern Rock, Proctor & Gamble UK and Sage, an enterprise software company.
