Supply Chain Management Officer

Supply chain management officers are responsible for carrying out the practical aspects of supply chain management plans. This means the processing of sales orders, management of distribution and warehousing and liaison with contractors and clients. Another important aspect of this role is record keeping and reporting, as this information is used by management for strategic planning and forecasting. This type of position is hands-on and provides a good entry level opportunity for supply chain graduates. Some employers also look to hire graduates with specialised qualifications in their product type, for example chemical engineering qualifications in the chemical production sector.
