The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a charity that provides, on call, a 24-hour lifeboat search and rescue service and a seasonal lifeguard service. Our lifeboat crews and lifeguards need a dedicated, professional and talented team behind them and this role will help to ensure crews reach incidents faster, thereby saving more lives at sea.
Our In-Service Support team require a Materials Scheduler to take ownership of ensuring the correct parts and materials are available efficiently and on-time on the coast. Working with the AX Microsoft Dynamics system and in conjunction with other RNLI departments and suppliers, you will establish and manage a ‘Plan for Every Part’ (PFEP) logistics system, and lead the In-Service Support materials set up for each process.
Planning skills are paramount! It also is essential that you have a degree in either Operational Management, Supply Chain, Materials Management or equivalent experience in project planning, parts ordering and management. Maintenance support in a marine, aerospace or other complex asset based environments is also required. A working knowledge of Continuous Improvement (Lean or equivalent) methods will be an advantage.
It is an exciting new role which will give you the ideal opportunity of being able to develop strong working relationships with Poole HQ staff, Station Managers, Technicians and volunteers; so you will naturally be a confident communicator.
