Would you like to join an innovative and growing UK Food/FMCG business in Warwickshire? This role would suit a candidate who has had some exposure to logistics possibly in the form of a Graduate Scheme and are now looking to push on with their development within a market leading organisation.

My client is looking for a Graduate Production Planner, to work multiple shift patterns (including weekends) to enhance their current planning and forecasting teams onsite. Based near Oxford, you will work closely with the wider supply chain teams in developing greater visibility of demand and will be supported in this by your warehousing colleagues.

If successful, the Graduate Production Planner will report directly into an onsite Supply Chain Manager and you will be expected to build upon successful processes onsite, but also identify where improvements can be made. You will inspire your team in what is a fast-moving production line environment, develop staff where necessary and be the key escalation point for any issues that may arise.

The site is a food production/food distribution environment where the key responsibilities will be to engage with all internal stakeholders. There is clear career progression for the right candidate as the company have a proven record of promoting from within. Health and safety are paramount onsite and they have worked hard on cultivating a "team" culture where everyone is pulling in the same direction.

Key responsibilities for the Graduate Production Planner will include generating production schedule and material required to fulfil orders. You will be tasked with giving visibility of demand to the operations team so they can flex headcount accordingly with their temporary labour providers and working collaboratively with the production team to understand and resolve technical forecasting tools, resolving production delays where possible.

The company is in an exciting growth phase over the next 12 months, resulting in new opportunities moving forwards. A distribution background would be beneficial and possibly food production experience also, a candidate who can demonstrate managing a team in a demanding distribution environment would be highly advantageous.

Based near Oxford you will receive a competitive salary of between £25,000 - £28,000 dependent on experience. The role could be a real stepping stone into a more significant logistics position and will suit a self-starter who is team driven and is able to communicate at all levels.
