Full Time

Animals. What’s not to love about them. We’re a nation of pet lovers, with 1 in 2 households having them. In fact, there are 57 million pets in the UK!

You can’t have a pet without having a whole load of accessories though, from collars and litter trays, to toys and coats. You can even buy a tiara for your Chihuahua these days!

We’re working with a national supplier of pet products to help them find a Purchasing / Inventory Planning Manager. They supply more than 12,500 SKUs to major retailers, with products sourced from across the globe.

With 57 million pets to supply for, it’s safe to say that making a dog’s dinner out of inventory and supply planning isn’t an option.

We’re looking for someone to take charge of forecasting, stock planning, category reporting, and purchasing. In short, you’ll be making sure that pets across the country are able to enjoy their products! You’ll do this with the support of your team of 3.

They’re a business that are continually evolving, so there will be medium and long term projects to develop and challenge you.

If you’d like to know a little more, please apply or call us for a chat.

We look forward to hearing from you.
