Trainee Assistant Supply Chain Manager

Start a great career in Supply Chain as you support the launch of our brand new SAP system or join one of our Regional Supply Chain departments.

The trend-bucking success we are currently enjoying means we have to keep over 600 Lidl UK stores fully stocked. No small task. We’re looking for a pro-active and ambitious Trainee Assistant Manager to join our growing team.

We will start by sending you on an intensive structured nine month training programme to become familiar with our Regional Distribution Centres, our stores and Head Office. Once training is complete, you will be either working temporarily alongside our Head Office Project Team or with one of the regional supply chain teams. Either way you will immediately get a chance to make your mark on the business in a varied and responsible role.

  • Monitoring and supporting store orders
  • Ordering goods from a pan European network of suppliers
  • KPI and product analysis
  • Managing overstock and remaining volume
  • Communicating with suppliers
  • Developing new processes and tools
  • Communicating with all HO operations departments

If leadership is your goal, we are offering excellent long term career prospects. To kick start your supply chain career you will need to be highly organised with a pragmatic approach to management, analytical, solution focused and with a structured work ethic. Holding at least a 2:1 in any discipline (a degree in Business, Supply Chain, Mathematics, Engineering or Physics is preferred), you must have excellent IT skills with advanced MS Office, Excel and Word. Target driven and comfortable under pressure you will have strong written and spoken communications and be naturally assertive with a committed and dedicated approach to projects.

You could be based at any of our ten UK sites so you must be fully flexible on location… a driving licence and willingness to travel is essential.

Great benefits include 30 days holiday per annum (including Bank Holidays) staff discounts and a contributory pension scheme.
