Supply Chain Manager - Aldershot

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.

Supply Chain Manager Jobs in Aldershot

Aldershot is a town that has grown up around the British army. It was a small village surrounded by barely useable land until the Crimean War, when a military base was located there. Within a few years the population had exploded from less than a thousand to around 16,000, which is about half its current population. It is known as the home of the British Army, and several regiments are based there.

The Hampshire town is located about 30 miles (50 km) south west of the centre of London, 7 miles (12 km) west of Guildford and 16 miles (26 km) south east of Reading. It is at the centre of a large conurbation that takes in Farnborough, Farnham, Fleet and Camberley, and together the population is close to a quarter of a million. Immediately to the north of Aldershot is Farnborough, home of one of the UK’s most important air shows, which is both a trade fair for military and civilian aircraft and a public spectacle.

While Aldershot is dominated culturally and, to some extent, geographically by the barracks, there is a static population living in the town and its adjacent neighbours, and there is a diverse range of industry in the area. Logistics and Supply chain professionals looking for Supply Chain Manager work should therefore find rich pickings in Aldershot. It’s well connected to the transport network, with the M3 passing to its north and a comprehensive rails service. And failing that, you might be able to hitch-hike on a tank.
