Head of Materials Management
Head of Materials Management job
Work in Buckinghamshire
Career in the high tech sector
We all need the materials necessary to do our jobs, but whose job is it to make sure we have them? It could be yours! I need a Head of Materials Management to manage the materials for a pretty enormous workforce that manufacture high technology products with a multitude of applications. You'd think that would be fairly straightforward wouldn't you? Get some stuff from A to B and you're away!! Shame that the materials probably have to go from A to D back to B across to C and over to Z isn't it... but then if it wasn't complicated it would be much fun would it?
This Head of Materials Management position oversees multiple locations in the UK but will be based somewhere in the beautiful countryside of Buckinghamshire where this client's head office is based. You can expect a generous package which includes bonus, car, a very impressive pension and a variety of other benefits - you just have to be pretty darn good at getting things to where they're meant to be, on time, in full, and to cost. You will develop and manage a beautiful supply chain, leading teams covering Production Scheduling, Inventory Planning, Logistics, Warehousing, Shipping aaaaaaaaaand SIOP - as such you will most certainly have had experience of managing managers, but perhaps your greatest attribute will be your analytical ability as you sit over all of these inputs and outputs and make sense of the complexity of the overall supply chain process giving you the basis for impacting change across the various processes, implementing lean processes, improving forecasting accuracy, and ultimately saving time and money.
If you've experience covering the above with particular expertise in managing planners, schedulers and inventory controllers to achieve optimum supply chain efficiency then we'd like to hear from you.
