Our client is a £multi-million p.a. t/o, rapidly expanding, paper based packaging manufacturer. Part of a major international group, the company supplies a highly demanding, packaging convertor customer base, with over 200 SKU’s, being supplied on a day 1, for day 3 delivery, basis.  This newly created role will carry  responsibility for creating and leading a ‘benchmark’ supply chain function, delivering value to the business, customers (internally and externally) and suppliers, through effective SCM.

Your communication and negotiation skills will be combined with experience of process and systems improvement, and a commitment to leading and developing your team.
