Job Description

  • Have you worked in a manufacturing environment, preferably food or drink?
  • Are you hugely analytical?
  • Would you like to work in an organisation that is going through a huge transition and you can be part of this change?

If so, we’d love to hear from you as our client is looking to recruit an Inventory Planner based in Cambridgeshire.

Working within the planning function of this fast growing, dynamic business you will be responsible for ensuring that raw materials are on site in full, in line with production plans across a multisite operation. It is vital that you have great attention to detail when analysing raw materials and you must understand the importance of total accuracy in this fast paced environment. Whilst it isn’t essential you understand the food industry, you must have some experience of a manufacturing environment with a strong understanding of Supply Chain.

To apply for this role you must understand the world of KPI’s, have excellent communication skills as well as analytical, and when analysing data, you should want to take the numbers to the next level. Anyone can look at numbers and pass them on, but what are they telling you? What can you and the business learn from them? What are your recommendations to the business? And you must be inquisitive as well as a whiz in Excel!
