Supply Chain Director - Doncaster

Supply Chain Director jobs

In order to achieve targets in regards to cost, efficiency and customer service, the supply chain director is a key member of a company.

Depending on the employer and the nature of their business, the person in this role will generally work with the planning, warehousing and supply chain departments to develop strategic plans, implement procedures, monitor operations and look for ways to improve processes in terms of key performance indicators.

In most cases, supply chain directors report directly to the company's MD, providing updates on strategies and successes within the company and advising on changes that could benefit the business.

In addition, the supply chain director will be a team leader, so responsibilities will include working with employees to ensure all members of staff are properly trained and motivated. Other tasks could include working with HR to hire new recruits, carrying out regular performance reviews and maintaining adequate staff levels through effective scheduling.

The skills required

Successful applicants for the role of supply chain director will need to be computer literate and proficient with the various software and systems used within the organisation - such as the technology used for research, statistical analysis, preparing reports and creating presentations.

In addition, you should be a champion for change, always seeking ways to make improvements in the company in order to benefit staff, stakeholders and customers. Project management experience is also vital.

Supply Chain Director Jobs in Doncaster

Doncaster has a colourful history that dates back at least as far as the Romans, when it was served by an important road between London and the North. Nowadays the South Yorkshire town remains a well connected place, with the M18 an A1(M) passing the town and excellent rail connections to Sheffield an Leeds to the west and the docks of Hull to the east. The canals helped bring wealth to the town, particularly when vast coal seams were discovered nearby and the town boomed. There is also Robin Hood International Airport on the doorstep, although it is probably more famous for a mischievous tweet than for its global aviation repute!

Although coal mining has largely ended in the area, it is one of the few places that still has active mines. During the Industrial Revolution the place was a hotbed of industry, with steel manufacture, glassmaking, railway engineering and chemical manufacturing going on. In the 1930s tractors started being made in the town by International Harvester. This tradition survived right up until 2007 after several buy-outs and mergers.

Anyone looking for Supply Chain Director work in Doncaster should be greeted by a seam of opportunities as rich as the coal’s. As well as the airport and road links, it is home to Doncaster International Railport, a vast railway complex that distributes goods nationally and ultimately internationally. Many companies have recognised this sweet spot and set up distribution centres and warehousing facilities in the area. Names include B&Q, DFS, Next, Faberge, Tesco, IKEA, Exel and Amazon.
