About the role
We have a high volume of suppliers to our site in Accolade Park from direct goods suppliers such as bottles, labels or corrugate to indirect suppliers such as engineering spares, services or logistics. This role supports our supplier development programme and you will be responsible for data collection, analysis and the reporting of supplier performance. You will work closely with internal stakeholders and suppliers to ensure key metrics are accurately recorded and compile a monthly dashboard. You’ll also attend all of our supplier meetings where you will have a voice and be heard. This role provides autonomy and you’ll be encouraged to identify continuous improvements and bring new ideas.
Reporting into our Supplier Development Manager, you will be part of a friendly team who support each other and work closely together so expect to make new friends. This is a fast paced role, the beginning of each month is our busiest period but less pressurised the rest of the month. Your key responsibilities include:
Using your excel skills to build complex charts, manipulating data and creating monthly supplier performance dashboards
Monitoring, analysing, and reporting on trends and tracking ongoing supplier performance
Identifying reporting gaps and developing and implementing new reporting methods and tools
Scheduling, attending and contributing to monthly supplier meetings including minute taking
Understanding and resolving data inconsistencies
Providing supplier related data support to our procurement function
It’s important that you have experience in an analytical role in a busy environment. Your background will ideally be in a supply chain / manufacturing function but this is not essential. You’ll be skilled at data analysis and revel in working with and manipulating large sets of data. You’ll be a whiz on MS Excel (Advanced level) and experience of MS Access would be beneficial.
You’ll enjoy working with internal stakeholders and suppliers and with great communication skills you’ll be confident in meetings. You’ll be obsessed with data and love producing dashboards and won’t be afraid to provide new ideas and relish the chance to find a better way.
We are a multi award winning company and like us you will have a passion for wine, we’ll even place you on a free one day wine tasting course (WSET).
