We are looking for individuals with the potential to lead and develop the highly effective and efficient supply chain operations required for a leading grocery retail business.

  • Manage multiple assignments and have sound organisational skills

If you can demonstrate the requirements above and are someone who thrives with significant autonomy and responsibility, and you are solutions orientated, we would like to hear from you.

On offer is the opportunity to take on new levels of responsibility and develop your supply chain career with this fast growing and exciting business.
