At Dyson, we improve things. Like vacuum cleaners. Ours lead the market in the UK, Europe, Japan and the USA. More recently, we've invented new hand dryer technology, a fan without blades and a digital motor that spins at 104,000 times a minute.
We adopt the same approach to the way that we supply our retailers and customers. We're constantly looking for new ways to solve old problems, improving reliability and cost-efficiency without compromising sales drivers.
As a Supply Chain & Operations Manager, you'll oversee supply chain initiatives, inventory levels, distribution and transport. You'll lead our warehousing and forecasting functions, as well as running a logistics team that processes all orders from the web and staff sales throughout the UK & Ireland.
You'll thrive on this responsibility, demonstrating your wizardry for analysis and logistics to optimise profitability and the fulfilment of service level agreements. This means analysing the results of promotions, comparing actual sales against predicted volumes and delivering accurate financial planning.
A hands-on leader, you need to be as adept with people as you are accurate with figures and forecasts. You'll motivate and develop your teams of 40+ people and build productive relationships with our key partners in retail and logistics.
You'll also guide our Demand and Inventory Managers - coordinating a seamless flow of goods, spares and accessories inbound to the UK & Ireland. You'll ensure optimum stock holdings within the 3PL are balanced against product lead-times, free time at Port and customer demand plans.
Working closely with Sales Directors, Finance and other key stakeholders both internally and externally, you'll ensure a robust strategyis adopted and deliver planned cost reductions throughout the supply chain.
We're looking for someone with exceptional logistics and supply chain experience as well as a proven ability to develop S&OP strategies. You'll need to show evidence of previous budgetary control and be comfortable in undertaking senior level negotiations.
In return, Dyson offers a competitive salary and benefits package together with the opportunity to develop your career within a global business that believes in constant improvement.
