We are currently partnered with a global food business which supplies a niche raw material to the wider food industry. Despite being a well-established c. £250m market leader, their supply chain planning and S&OP/IBP processes are in their infancy in comparison. Therefore, they require a Global Demand Director to join the business in a newly created role to spearhead the maturity of their global business processes. The business is looking to fundamentally change the way their supply chain operates by transforming it from short-term and supply led, to long-term and demand led. There is virtually a blank canvas, meaning there is an opportunity to create and lead global continuous improvement.
The ideal candidate will be a high quality supply chain professional with a detailed and extensive background in demand planning and S&OP/IBP management. Possessing strong commercial acumen, they will have a deep understanding of sales forecasting and wider business planning processes. Ideally you will have led the improvement and overhaul of existing S&OP/IBP processes. Food experience is desirable but not essential.
