  • Evaluate and optimise our end-to-end supply chain, covering warehousing, manufacturing, fulfilment, and procurement to enhance business value.
  • Apply statistical analysis, analytics, and algorithms to drive informed decision-making and operational excellence.
  • Lead teams effectively through change.
  • Communicate effectively with stakeholders and influence across all levels to drive consensus and support for supply chain initiatives.
  • Develop strategic improvement initiatives aligned with long-term goals and ensure their successful implementation.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional departments to implement cost-saving strategies strategically across all regions.
  • Work with various departments to develop business cases and long-term investment plans for a sustainable operating model.
  • Facilitate change to internal processes, practices and technologies to optimise performance and achieve organisational targets.
  • Manage multiple priorities efficiently in a dynamic, growth-oriented environment.
  • Maintain regular communication with stakeholders regarding project progress, methodologies, and priorities.
  • Develop, execute and implement projects and process improvements (including distribution network design, transportation mode selection, capacity planning etc.) within the supply chain organization to drive continuous enhancement.
  • Provide coaching and training to our Supply Chain team for specific projects and overall team development.
  • Establish global supply contingency plans to ensure readiness for crisis situations.

You’ll get:

  • A chance to be at the heart of making huge changes and new plans for a growing business, influencing our short and long term direction;
  • A chance to set the direction for our supply team and define our ways of working as our supply chain continues to evolve;
  • To play a key role in delivering on the ambitions of Europe’s more sustainable factory;
  • Great exposure to key leadership teams. You will be a member of the supply leadership team.


You will have:

  • Significant experience in Supply Chain Management, Optimization, and Data Analytics, demonstrating a strong understanding of end-to-end supply chain processes.
  • Proficiency in Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) and Integrated Business Planning (IBP).
  • Strong communication, collaboration, and analytical skills.
  • Solid experience in change management and the ability to influence across senior leadership teams.
  • Demonstrated expertise in producing, interpreting, and communicating forecasts, budgets, and variance analyses.
  • Capability to effectively manage multiple priorities in a fast-paced, transforming environment.
