Supply Chain Manager

Supply Chain Manager jobs

Developing and implementing an effective supply chain is an important part of any business - from procurement, planning and manufacturing through to warehousing, logistics and transport. By ensuring that all systems are running smoothly, you can prevent projects from going over budget or off schedule and improve customer service.

With so much at stake, it's easy to see why supply chain managers play such a key role in the ongoing success of a business.

People in these roles are responsible for the day-to-day management of deliveries and inventory, understanding demand, adapting to market changes and creating or adjusting policies in order to improve performance in terms of KPIs like budget, time restraints and quality control.

Of course, supply chain managers are also in charge of teams, so the role will involve training and motivating staff, as well as resolution management, scheduling shifts and taking part in recruitment drives.

The skills required

When applying for a job as a supply chain manager, candidates should have demonstrable commercial acumen and excellent analytical and numerical skills.

An ability to communicate clearly with clients, stakeholders, directors and staff is a must and you should be capable of working in a busy environment where tight deadlines must be upheld. Negotiation, delegation and change management skills are also a must.

Successful applicants will also need to be IT literate and able to use spreadsheet and database software, as well as other relevant technology.
