Position Summary
As a Supply Planner in our coffee business, you are responsible for the end to end supply chain operations.  Acting as the central point of communication from factories through to all of your clients and colleagues, this is a crucial role ensuring we have inventory ready, freshness is of the highest standard and all parties know what to expect and when.
You will formulate, develop and implement Supply Planning strategies and policies across multiple locations, be an expert in how supply planning works, and be able to communicate effectively with your multiple stakeholders.  

Your day always starts with checking current availability to ensure you can fulfill the short and medium term supply requirements.  This isn’t just spreadsheets-you liaise with colleagues to ensure their part of the process is on track, and conduct ‘what-if’ analyses to ensure there’s always a Plan B 

If there are any risks or issues, it’s your job to fix them.  In the short term this may look like challenging the efficiency of the line, but longer term you’re responsible for establishing new processes to define supply requirements versus current capability to supply and be an enabler to decision making in addressing any gaps that may arise 

When everyone understands their part of the process, the whole operation works better.  You are a key driver of alignment and standardization to further improve the efficiency and quality of the work we do 

Your afternoon is spent looking at the Monthly Planning Business Process, liaising with your colleagues in Zone 

What Will Make You Successful?
You manage many stakeholders, both internal and external, so you need to be a confident, with an eye for detail and the ability to drive and influence 

Strong analytical skills 

You need to be an expert in supply chain operations, have a desire to drive continuous improvement, and be able to back up your ideas with facts and stats 

You need to enjoy a role with a large scope, very number oriented, dynamic, and  be as comfortable with factory efficiency as you are planning inventory deliveries globally
