We currently have an opportunity for a Materials Planner, joining our Operations Planning team providing overarching materials and inventory planning support to our manufacturing areas. In this role, you will be responsible for interrogating MRP output, ensuring material order coverage, forecast accuracy and tracking OTIF deliveries. Through defining planning parameters, managing material inventory, and progressing materials to production areas, you will ensure continuity of shop floor activities.
To be successful, you will have experience in materials planning, preferably gained in a regulated manufacturing/production environment. You will be adept at interpreting ERP systems, in particular inventory management aspects, and bring an analytical mindset, showing comfort and confidence in dealing with data and information from multiple sources.
As a minimum you will be qualified to GCSE level education (A-Level or equivalent), however preference sits with those who offer A-Level (equivalent) or higher. APICS certification and/or Class A exposure is beneficial but not essential.
You will be comfortable working autonomously, showing initiative and independence, but equally will be able to demonstrate the ability to collaborate with and engage colleagues through tasks and activities. You will be organised by nature, with the ability to prioritise, multi-task, and deliver to timelines.
