Supply Chain Specialist

Job description

We are looking for a Supply Chain Rockstar at LOAVIES HQ in Zwolle!

LOAVIES is growing rapidly and we have ambitious plans for the future of fashion. In the past 2 years we doubled our team (from 50 to 100 employees) and in the next 12 months we hope to double up again!

Are you our next Supply Chain Rockstar? We’re looking for someone to join our Logistics team, to help build relationships across LOAVIES to optimise value in flowing goods to meet ‘into DC’ dates for ultimate customer delivery. Wow...that’s serious business :-)

Someone who wants to be part of a team that lifts each other up; a team that fails together and celebrates together. Someone who likes each day to be different, the challenge of doing things differently, and the freedom to figure things out for themselves. We work hard, sure, but we have a laugh while we do it.

Sound like you? Here’s the role up close:

What You'll Be Doing
As our Supply Chain Rockstar, you’ll be responsible for A-Z planning and directing inbound stock from our suppliers to our warehouse. From the moment an order is ready to be picked up you’ll be taking over control from that moment. You will chase suppliers if they do not meet requirements around packaging or ETA’s.

You’ll be working closely with our buying dept. answering questions about ETA’s, lead times and all other possible topics concerning our stock. You will also be taking care of situations where you need to be in charge of inbound certain high priority items.

There will be daily contact between you and our suppliers and our warehouse to optimize our inbound process. You’ll be focussing on our current way of working and will improve the process where needed.

You'll Also Be

  • Organising weekly evaluation moments with our warehouse ops manager to see where we can improve the inbound.
  • Looking for opportunities to improve the current process. There’s a lot to be done and we want to improve!
  • The first point of contact for questions from other departments if it concerns stock whereabouts and ETAs . You’ll be able to support those departments by giving the right information around this topic.
  • Be sharp of all new product launch dates; manage and monitor the performance and be prepared to intervene with solutions where there is risk to achieving acceptance into Distribution Center dates.
  • Assist in building volume forecasts to ensure capacity with the 3PL.
  • Developing solutions to non-standard issues. Identify and respond to pressing needs of LOAVIES for ad hoc shipments and in meeting new product launches.
  • Setting KPIs for the Supply Chain function and for freight forwarders
  • Aligning with the business on goals and deliverables.


Expectations and skills we love

  • You are proactive and well organised. It’s hectic so we need you to oversee it all!
  • You can communicate to all levels of the business. Keep them sharp, make them better.
  • Okay, if you have experience in managing inbound stock, ideally within a retail/FMCG environment that would be awesome. Although we value your skill set higher, because we believe you are able to learn quick :-)
  • Teamplayer (of course!). Although you have a specific role, your work touches the whole organisation.
  • You are definitely looking for a dynamic and fast paced environment. It’s all about quality and speeding up the process where possible.

What do we offer?

  • 30-38 hours p/w (minimum 4 working days)
  • Location: Zwolle
  • Free healthy lunch at work - every day!
  • Competitive salary
