Are you a determined and analytical Supply Chain Coordinator, looking to take the next step in your career? Would you thrive working for a market-leading and expanding organisation where you are responsible for coordinating stock from over 200 suppliers across the UK and Europe? We have a fantastic opportunity for a Supply Chain Coordinator to join this ever-growing and thriving manufacturer based in South Birmingham.

Working for a company that truly expects excellence from all of its employees, you will be tasked with calculating, ordering and maintaining stock supply from this organisation’s multiple UK and European suppliers, working with Excel to do so and making sure that demands are always met on time and in line with supply chain trends and analysis.

With an excellent eye for detail, you will raise purchase orders and oversee the purchase and processing of new stock with the suppliers, progressing through to receipt of goods. If there are any queries or issues that arise regarding the deliveries, you will be tasked with solving supply problems and queries in a calm, friendly and professional manner. You will also create weekly stock reports for circulation across the company, and analyse stock requirements so that the supply of items is maintained at a continuous and calculated level.

With your fantastic analytical skills, and the ability to work with excel, using V-lookups and Pivot tables to manage and review your stock data, you will maintain arrival dates for all products, ensuring accuracy of information on stock arrivals and budgeted spend. You will work closely with other departments to ensure customer requirements are met and build strong relationships with the Goods In department to ensure all deliveries are received and processed accurately

Diligent, pro-active and capable, and working in a small team, you will resolve all delivery, price and quality issues with UK and European suppliers, as well as supporting the Supply Manager with the management of imports from outside of Europe. You will maintain information on various purchasing excel spreadsheets as necessary and will also have responsibility for processing import paperwork for European deliveries as applicable, post Brexit.

You will need to be a natural “numbers person”, with a keen analytical mind. Previous experience of working within a purchasing or supply chain environment is essential, as well as an enjoyment of working in a data heavy role. You will also have great communication skills for liaising with suppliers and internal colleagues on a daily basis. Ideally, your experience will be gained through a busy manufacturing environment.

In return, you will receive an excellent salary and benefits package, that includes free parking, as well as the opportunity to develop your career within this ever-growing organisation that is a market-leader within its field.
