Do you have a background in Production Planning, Material Requirements Planning and Purchasing within FMCG, Retail, Pharma, Food or another arm of the Consumer Goods sector?

Would you like to join a global corporation with a collaborative, small company feel, which prides itself on its green credentials and sustainable practices?

One of the world's oldest personal care and cosmetics companies is seeking a Production & Supply Planner to take ownership of supply, production and purchase planning for their flagship brand.

Joining a friendly team of six, you will ensure end-to-end supply of finished goods by creating and managing effective supply plans and liaising with a wide range of third party suppliers.

In addition to a competitive base salary and comprehensive range of benefits, the company offers fantastic progression opportunities, both within the UK and internationally.

Key Skills & Experience:

  • Significant experience in Production Planning with an international focus, ideally gained within global matrix organisations in the Consumer Goods space (e.g. FMCG, Retail, Pharma, Food).
  • Experience in Material Requirements Planning using either SAP or Oracle MRP (min 1 year).
  • Exposure to working with 3rd Party Manufacturing (3PM) providers.
  • Some exposure to tactical / transactional Procurement.
  • Capable of thriving in a fast-paced, demanding environment, delivering effective planning for multiple products lines with short lifecycles.
  • Able to demonstrate attitudes and behaviours such as humility, respect, strong ethics, and a desire to contribute to the greater good.

Due to the office location, you must be able to drive and have access to a vehicle for work.

The company is unable to offer visa sponsorship, therefore you must also be a British Citizen or have indefinite leave to remain in the UK.
