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.
