The end goal is to build a world class supply chain (Gartner maturity level 5) by the end of 2024.

 

Opportunity

 

In this delivery role, you’ll be part of a flexible team who are not afraid to tackle a thorny technical problem or highly complex data sets.  You will assist in the design and delivery of transformational Digital products that sit within the wider Supply Chain process. You will be assisting in designing and building the analytical kernel, data models, structures and pipelines, testing frameworks, and data visualisations, and working with our partners within the business to embed the tools to drive real impact.

Data and digital is a fast-changing discipline and we are passionate about growth, so you will have opportunity to stay current with technology and to advance your domain knowledge in the complex and fascinating field of Supply Chain.

 

Key Accountabilities & Responsibilities

 

Responsibilities of this role include, but are not limited to:

  • “What?” - Supporting the supply chain operations and project managers with co-creation of digital solutions to address challenges along the end-to-end supply chain.  Discovering and recommending opportunities through your participation in day-to-day supply chain operations.
  • “So What?” – Translating the requirements into a tangible, robust and well-documented product with a smooth UI/UX experience backed by re-usable data structures, flows and engineering components.  The business can then use these products to improve decision making and drive action; supporting evaluation of the benefit this unlocks.
  • “Now What?” – Identifying, analysing and interpreting trends in complex data sets, using statistics to deliver robust and accurate results in the face of variable data quality. Communicating conclusions to the business, advising on how to use these products to best utilise their capability, and ensuring their long term adoption.
