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.
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.

One of the smallest counties in England, Rutland is bordered by Northamptonshire, Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, as well as the unitary authority, Peterborough.
With just two towns, Oakham and Uppingham, and villages including Ketton and Cottesmore, Rutland may be diminutive in size, but it offers a variety of opportunities for those seeking Supply Chain Director positions.
It's one of the least economically deprived areas in England and in 2007, it became the fourth county to be awarded Fairtrade Status.
The region has a long history and it first shows up in the record books in 1159. Uppingham School, one of the first public schools in the country, was founded in 1584 and over the years it has educated a number of well-known writers, innovators, historians, scientists, politicians, sportsmen and musicians.
Ketton stone is a type of limestone used in building and as an ingredient in cement. The Hanson Cement plant in Ketton produces more than 10 per cent of the UK's demand for the mixture.
In addition, Rutland Bitter is one of only three UK beers to have been given Protected Geographical Indication status. These days, the Grainstore Brewery is one of the few companies to manufacture the tasty beverage.
