The company
A New Zealand owned and operated FMCG business that makes and distribute market-leading products across multiple retail channels. They are looking for passionate, talented people who can help drive current and future success. People who innovate, create, lead and inspire. They set the bar high, and expect that their people do too. 

They currently have a great opportunity for a Supply and Production Planner to take on a wide range of responsibilities and grow their career in the business.


The Opportunity

As the Supply and Production Planner, you report to the S&OP Manager and take joint responsibility for the efficient and effective operational, tactical and strategic planning for the supply chain function. 

Your responsibilities will include, though not be limited to:

  • Production planning for over 300 SKUs across 10 production lines
  • Materials planning and coordination
  • Supply planning of finished goods
  • Increasing involvement and responsibility for S&OP
  • Work on an ERP implementation
  • Continuous improvement initiatives across S&OP and systems
  • Manage key relationships with the manufacturing team and other key internal stakeholders

What’s in it for you?

This is an exciting time to join the business. The company is continuing its impressive and sustained organic growth. As a result, they are investing in their supply chain and opportunities exist for you to take on more responsibility and grow with the business. The S&OP Manager is looking for someone who will step up and there is a clear opportunity for you to help drive the company to improve its supply chain capability while shaping and growing your skills, experience and career.
You will be required to adapt and operate in an environment where the systems are not yet perfect. There will be new skills for you to learn (which you will be supported in) so a get-up and go attitude and the ability to think on your feet and come up with solutions will be required.

This opportunity could suit an experienced Production/Supply Planner or a recent graduate who has recently started their career. The initial salary package will be reflective of this.
