I'm seeking a Commercial & Supply Chain Director to join a focused and dynamic distributor and builder's merchant based in Crawley.

Under the leadership of an investment team, the business has energy behind a plan to transform & grow the organisation both organically and acquisitively.

You will be responsible for Buying, Supplier Performance, Branch Operations and Logistics across all current and future locations, currently made up of Head Office and multiple branches covering the London commuter belt. You will review the current Supply Chain and play a hands-on, operational role in driving improvement, before progressing to the future proofing of the supply chain/commercial functions to enable future growth. As the business expands you will be responsible for the integration of all acquisitions into one high-performing, efficient Supply Chain.

You have a track record of end-to-end Supply Chain leadership within a multi-site distribution or branch network and at least one successful experience of leading Supply Chain transformation, ideally within an SME environment or a the integration of a corporate acquisition. You're comfortable working in a hands-on leadership role, in an SME environment when you're often required to "do more" yourself rather than relying on significant infrastructure. You will demonstrate the headroom to develop into a more senior role and have aspirations to become an MD.

The successful candidate will be paid approximately £80,000 to £90,000 plus car, performance-related bonus and additional benefits.
