The initial requirement is to embed into the newly reorganised Aircraft Maintenance, working closely with production staff with responsibility both for logistics and purchasing but also for suggesting and implementing procedures to improve efficiency across all stages of supply chain.
The new format is a fairly substantial departure organisationally and procedurally so this will likely be a fairly intensive, albeit rewarding process focused on logistics specific to aircraft maintenance.
Following this the SCM will move into a role in charge of supply chain for the entire company managing all aspects of procurement for a company turnover of around £75m per year.
This will involve management of supply chain from “fixed” suppliers such as Boeing as well as working to find the most cost effective solutions from variable suppliers of everything from aircraft components to catering supplies.
To be considered you must be able to show similar experience, ideally in an aviation environment with a view to increasing efficiency with a view to the commercial aspect of the business as well. Relationships with suppliers, audit experience and very high levels of organisation will all be distinct advantages as weill evidence of a strong previous track record.
For the right candidate we offer a very good salary and an extremely varied and rewarding workload, there may also be opportunities for career development further down the line.
If you are working in logistics/supply chain and are seeking your next challenge then look no further, opportunities like this dont come up very often!
