Description

The Company

Yealands stunning Seaview Vineyard is located on a beautiful stretch of coastline in Marlborough’s Awatere Valley. Their award-winning wines have a distinctive expression which is influenced by this stunning and unique slice of Marlborough. 

As one of the world’s most sustainable wineries their purpose is to push boundaries, think innovatively and produce some of the most exceptional wines around. This innovative approach has seen the extensive restoration of native vegetation within their vineyards to promote biodiversity and provide a habitat for native birds and insects, the installation and utilisation of renewable energy initiatives, and integrated pest control measures.  
  
Yealands is one of New Zealand’s largest makers of wine and is 100% NZ owned by the Marlborough Community. The winery has established itself as one of the country’s most prominent wine producers and export their premium quality sustainable wines to over 65 countries including North America, Europe and Asia Pacific.

The Opportunity
  
The purpose of the role is to build a best practice supply chain function. This will include assessing processes, planning, and efficiencies, and then enacting change to improve the end-to-end supply chain function for the business.
  
Yealands has an exciting growth roadmap, which will result in increasingly complex supply chain needs that will need proactive solutions to compete effectively on the global stage. 
As well as leading the supply chain function you will also be a key member of the Senior Leadership Team working alongside the CEO and colleagues from sales, finance, marketing, sustainability, operations, and HR.  
  
You will have the ability and drive to flourish at all levels, continuously raising the bar and driving improvements through systems, and process. This is a high-impact opportunity where you will be tasked with continuously driving improvements, to improve supply chain performance, customer delivery and ultimately building a high-performing and resilient supply chain to support the increasing complexity and high growth of the business.

  
About You
  
You’ll love supply chain and problem-solving.  You’ll relish a challenge and the need to improve efficiencies by rolling up your sleeves and being deeply engaged in all facets of the business.  You’ll also be attracted to the opportunity of redesigning an enabled and effective supply chain, that will support growth strategies and help see Yealands continue to enhance its brand presence in both the export and domestic markets. You’ll be passionate about making things better for customers through the implementation of a best practice S&Op process and striving to build a best-in-class end-to-end supply chain.
  
Your demonstrable leadership experience, particularly in an area where you are accountable for end-to-end supply chain, coupled with experience delivering both operational excellence and strategic growth initiatives, will ensure your success in this role. Previous experience in Food, FMCG or Retail sectors is preferred.
  
You’ve got to a point in your professional life where you’re ready to make a big impact, and you’ve worked out that genuine opportunities to lead a Kiwi business with scale and potential are few and far between, and that this is one of the gems. You’ll be ambitious for the business, and yourself, and feel confident that you’re building the capability to take on wider leadership responsibility in your career journey.  
  
If you are a dynamic individual who has the drive and motivation to succeed, to drive Yealands to new levels of success, and are excited at the prospect of furthering your career within a fast-paced,
challenging and innovative business, we look forward to hearing from you.
