About the role:
Our client has multiple sites throughout the country and to date, they have had very little control over their inventory which in turn, has resulted poorly on the financials.

About you: 

  • You will have working supply chain experience, preference being in the inventory management space
  • Have the ability to deliver training content to a range of stakeholders from junior to C Suite level
  • You will need to travel regularly for this role so the ability to quickly adapt to every changing work place environments is a must.

  • Be involved in an industry that is being heavily invested in and growing rapidly
