“Leverage your Operations & Supply Chain Talent”
Branded FMCG, Nottinghamshire, attractive package to engage talent
We lead a rare visit to the external market for this exciting challenger organisation who seek a talented leader to design winning functional strategy, set visionary direction, and lead from the front their Operations & Supply Chain team.
Part of a privately held Group, their challenger mentality makes them agile and entrepreneurial, operating with the flair, energy and lack of bureaucracy that comes so often in large corporates. Their business has grown impressively by leveraging consumer trends to eat high quality authentic foods, and is on the cusp of a new exciting growth phase with the ambition to modernise their supply chain operations and build equity into their wholly owned range of branded products. This year healthy double-digit growth is realistic.
Their Group Managing Director now invites a Supply Chain Operations Director to join the leadership in this new role, to focus the functional team on an agenda that understands which key opportunities will deliver for the business. This is an opportunity to reshape customer fulfilment and build best practice systems that support first class trusted relationships, also with suppliers many of which are based overseas whom the business currently has long standing positive but unformalised partnerships with.
The scope of this brief means operations (70% of role) and supply chain (30%) leadership expertise which leans into a modernisation programme is prerequisite, as is multichannel experience; much of their business is delivered wholesale and the appetite now exists to grow their brand portfolio with grocery multiples. But most important will be your track record of delivery by engaging people with your vision, built on clear insights that deliver traction with customers, suppliers, and the business alike.
The leadership opportunity to inspire the function of this forward-thinking organisation, and grow with their business, makes the position worth exploring further.
