Type of opportunity:
All roles will have a level of general management and safety responsibility that go with them. Some of the management related tasks involve coordinating the work force (often multiple trades) to ensure processes perform to cost and to schedule (to the deadlines within the plan of work). There is often a significant element of problem solving and liaising with other departments. Additionally we have to be conscious of safety and take appropriate mitigating actions to reduce our exposure to risks. With this in mind a good appreciation and approach to risk and safety management has to be implemented.
Supply Chain roles are set in a challenging, fast paced environment. These are ideally suited to people who enjoy using technical knowledge and people skills to solve real world problems and who are tenacious, resourceful whilst maintaining a cool head under pressure. The ability to see tasks through to completion and ensure all details are complete is advantageous. As much of the work involves liaising with other team members and people from other departments, the roles suit someone with good interpersonal and relationship management skills.
To apply, you’ll need to be on course for achieving a 2:2 Bachelor’s degree. Accepted Degrees: Procurement, Materials Management, Business Management, CIPS.
