Supply Chain Director  

£six figure package

Based: Blagdon or Highbridge, Somerset

Here at Yeo Valley we know that “what got us here” may not get us to where we want to be…. That’s why we’ve now got The Big Plan: a strategic framework for guiding us all towards our ambitious future.  There’s a lot that needs to change as our brand and our business becomes bigger. 

This newly created role represents a unique opportunity to join the executive leadership team and will lead the end to end supply chain function from replenishment, supplier management, planning, scheduling, inventory, stores and logistics. We are at the start of a new and ambitious five year business plan and the supply chain director will be a key part of the leadership team which will help shape, define and implement core priorities.

The successful person will lead the set up and launch of a new goods in bound warehouse whilst also fully reviewing our forecasting, planning and scheduling of operations including a potential launch of S&OP. You will also help shape, implement and manage our operational vision for the future and how we best serve our customers.

You will bring experience gained from senior supply chain roles, ideally from a short shelf-life FMCG business. Beyond this you will have a proven track record of leading an end to end supply chain function with detailed knowledge of best practice in forecasting, planning and scheduling.  You are someone who relies on great analysis to drive your decisions, you enjoy being a strategic thinker and have strong commercial and negotiation skills with examples of reducing the cost to serve customers. You excel at building and developing high performing people and teams, who share best practice. We expect a lot but you are someone who thrives in this type of challenge. You’ve been waiting for an opportunity like this, a chance to lead a supply chain team and business on a journey of transformational change to deliver exceptional results.

All direct applications will be forwarded to our retained recruitment partner SJS Consulting.
