leave a comment »

We are delighted to be working with  a very well known global brand in the automotive aftermarket parts distribution supply chain. Due to ongoing development and strategic plans for growth in 2011, they now require a procurement and planning professional to join their management team.

You will be responsible for the effective planning of the product portfolio, managing the small planning team and ensuring maximum product availability whilst minimising inventory. This will include liaison with sales and marketing to maximise accuracy of demand forecasts for suppliers. There will also be direct and key interfaces with suppliers to ensure contractual delivery of pricing and delivery metrics. You will also manage supplier freight contracts and importation procedures to achieve maximum cost efficiency.

The ideal candidate will have extensive experience in logistics and supply chain planning as well as purchasing / procurement, within a SAP driven environment. Good knowledge of SAP is highly desirable. You will have experience of managing a small team, and ideally within a distribution business with a large number of parts references.

For more information, please send your CV to, or call 0845 269 9085 for more information.
