Up to £22,000
A billion pound company with over 500 stores and over 9500 staff, it’s fair to say we’re growing fast! In fact, we’ve doubled in size in the last five years. Our stores are springing up all around the country – now no-one is ever more than half an hour away from their nearest Screwfix. Our team of over 70 Supply Chain professionals book enough pallets into our DC’s in just 3 months that if we stacked them they’d reach the Stratosphere. If you do your job right, our customers will never be more than half an hour away from the exact tool they need to do their job right.
The Supply Chain Planner role
You’ll be responsible for a specific range and it’s down to you to get your range from our suppliers to our distribution centres at the right time. You’ll review current and historic business intelligence and sales dates to forecast what we need and when we need it. Working to strict schedules and deadlines, you’ll need to prioritise your deliveries according to business need. To achieve your goals, you’ll build strong relationships with not only suppliers but also working stakeholders across the business including Buying, Marketing and Operations.
The skills you need as a Supply Chain Planner
A problem solver with an analytical mind! Having had some experience working in a commercial, supply chain or logistics environment, you’re looking for that next step to really get your Supply Chain career going. Your work is accurate, even when multi-tasking and hitting tight deadlines. Using your strong communication skills, you can build relationships with ease and work collaboratively with both internal and external stakeholders to reach your end goal. On top of this, you’re a total whizz on excel with the ability to analyse data from large spreadsheets with V-Lookups being second nature to you.
Innovative, successful and growing fast, we’re the UK’s number one supplier to the trade and provide a great service to DIY enthusiasts. We’re also part of Kingfisher plc, Europe’s leading DIY home improvement retailer with £10.8bn annual revenue and over 80,000 employees.
But what’s it really like to work here? The pace is fast and the standards are high. We work very hard to meet the needs of our customers and be even more successful. But make no mistake, we also like to have fun, muck in and support each other. As our people make all the difference, we believe in promoting from within, which is why a career at Screwfix can really take you places.
You’ll receive a competitive salary and a wide range of rewards including 28 days’ holiday (inclusive of bank holidays) and our award-winning company pension scheme. As well as excellent training and ongoing development, you’ll also benefit from life cover, childcare vouchers, 20% discount with Screwfix and B&Q and discounted healthcare and company share save schemes.
