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.
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.

Situated on the North Sea, East Anglia is a region that includes counties like Suffolk, Norfolk and Cambridgeshire, as well as the city of Peterborough.
Up until the 17th century, most of the region was marshland. A network of river diversions and drainage systems built in the 1600s allowed the area to be converted to arable land and the population began to increase.
Prior to the Industrial Revolution, East Anglia was known for its textile production, but much of this industry moved north to the Midlands during the 18th and 19th centuries.
One of the most famous institutions in the region is the University of Cambridge, which is one of the world's oldest educational establishments. A near-by cluster of tech businesses - the so-called Silicon Fen - comprises a number of start-up companies, most of which can be linked to the university.
Much of East Anglia's economy is based in agriculture and food production and offers a broad range of opportunities for those seeking Supply Chain Manager vacancies.
Colman's mustard is manufactured in the region, as is Robinsons squash. A Bernard Matthews turkey farm is located near Weston Longville and Aunt Bessie's roast potatoes are made in Westwick. Meanwhile, Premier Foods manufactures Hartley's Jam, Smash instant potatoes and Rose's Marmalade. In addition, Bird's Eye has two factories in the region.
