Spotlight on a ... Supply Chain Manager (Womens)

If you love a logistic challenge, if you’ve a talent for thinking fast on your feet, here’s the job for you. Our Supply Chain Planners make sure that the correct stock is available in the right place at the right time to supply our stores and meet our wholesale and international customer orders.

It’s no easy feat. You’ll need to plan factory production, work with overseas planning offices, update our development timetable, and be ready for any ad hoc requests or changes that may come your way. Initiative is a must, and you’ll need to be comfortable prioritising your workload. But you’ll have a great team to work with.

Every day’s different. You’ll be dealing with other departments, other countries and other cultures, meeting new people and learning about their roles all the time. The scale of the operation is huge and, as a business, we’re always looking ahead. We’ve just introduced a new Supply Chain planning tool that’ll help us to see the effects of supply constraints on stock and availability. Like a lot of the systems here, it’s bespoke, not off-the-shelf. Another sign of Clarks commitment to excellence.
