SAP jobs – SAP SCM Business Manager

We are looking for a senior SAP SCM Business Manager.

It is to be based in the UK with some European travel, hence we need European candidates for this role.

Job Purpose

Following the roll-out of SAP and a factory-based MES / Yield Reporting system to all UK operations, they have embarked on a major project to implement a SAP-based factory planning and forecasting solution (PP & APO). The project is targeted at enhancing both their service to customers and driving efficiencies and responsiveness through-out their supply chain processes.

This role offers a fantastic opportunity to lead this initiative on behalf of the business, working closely with their operational teams and IT delivery team to drive the change initiative.

The successful candidate will blend operational experience and credibility, strong engagement and decision making abilities, together with the vision to facilitate a step-change in this critical area of our business. Success will be defined by your ability to translate and deliver the business vision of an integrated forecasting, planning and scheduling operation that is scalable and repeatable across all their UK processing operations.

Suitable candidates for this position will overwhelmingly come from a business rather than “IT / SAP” background; for instance a senior business supply chain manager / site general manager / planning manager. Ideally, will have been seconded to an implementation project to roll-out SAP factory planning and forecasting across a number of manufacturing units. As such, you will be a senior business manager able to demonstrate you have facilitated business and organisational change and helped shape and drive the adoption of new processes and ways of working.

The importance of this role and project is evidenced by the fact that the Business Lead will report to their Chief Financial Officer.
