About the company:

Our client is a large, privately owned Kiwi FMCG company with instantly recognisable household brands. Within a recent investment having been made into the capability of the supply chain, a new opportunity in the production/supply planning space has become available.
About the role:

Reporting into the S&OP Manager and working alongside another production/supply planner, this role will see you bringing your current production planning experience within a manufacturing environment and layering it with supply planning in a company that manufactures both on and offsite.

Success in this role will see creating, maintaining and coordinating daily, weekly and monthly forecast production schedules to ensure production deadlines are met, plans are generated within inventory parameters and ensuring regular status updates and reports are fed back to the production team and management in a timely manner to achieve both internal financial goals and customer delivery dates.

Your ability to work collaboratively with internal and external stakeholders (production teams, suppliers, purchasing team and 3rd party manufacturers) is essential as there are many stakeholders you will need to work with in order to be successful in your role.

Experience within a food-based manufacturing environment is highly favourable. With a new manufacturing site currently in the build phase, this role will present you with the opportunity to be involved in the set-up and shutdown of production lines while working to still ensure production demands/needs are still met. Working with a continuous improvement mindset, this role will require you to maintain awareness and knowledge of contemporary manufacturing operational developments, innovations and methodologies.
