Production/Supply Planner

22 / 03 / 2024

  • Auckland
  • Permanent / Full Time
  • Manufacturing / Planning

Description

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.

Description

About the company:

Our client is a large, privately owned Kiwi FMCG company with instantly recognisable household brands. 
  
About the role:

Reporting into the Purchasing Manager and working with pre-established suppliers, this role will see you working to optimise the purchasing function for your categories. Success in this role will see you working strategically to review the MRP, assess data inputs, review inventory levels and take into account contractual agreements, (e.g. price breaks based on volumes ordered) all before placing purchase orders. Once PO’s have been placed, alongside the logistics team, you will ensure purchased goods arrive on time for production while maintaining high levels of quality.

With support, this role will see you managing supplier performance and reporting on supplier activity/serviceability. These reports will contribute to supplier performance reviews that you will be involved in.

What’s in it for you?

This role is an exciting opportunity for you to step up from your current transactional purchasing role and move into a new challenge where you work strategically to optimise the purchasing function for your categories. You will be joining a well-known FMCG business that manufactures both onsite and with 3rd party manufacturers. This role will give you exposure to many facets of the supply chain and in time, as the business continues to evolve, there will be an opportunity to partake in Continuous Improvement projects (e.g. a new ERP implementation).
