Production and Supply Coordinator
- Production and Supply Coordinator
IN A NUTSHELL
Bellroy is a fast-growing global brand, with warehouses, stockists and customers all over the world. Launched with a range of six wallets 12 years ago, we now release about 50 new products a year (give or take). Our Production team is in charge of supply and planning, and are key to getting all of these products (and those yet to come) out into the world and into the hands of our customers. We’re currently on the search for a Production and Supply Coordinator to maintain the flow of product that enables everything else we do. Sound interesting? Keep reading!
As our Production and Supply Coordinator, you’ll be working closely with our suppliers, courier services and freight forwarders – juggling them all (often at once) to keep everything moving along as it should. You’ll need to be able to make production plans, set delivery timelines, be highly aware of any potential issues or delays before they happen and communicate effectively to help others - external and internal - stay on course. You’ll be responsible for keeping tabs on factory output and stock levels, as well as external logistics including the shipping of raw materials, finished goods and samples. That’s a lot of movement to track, so naturally, you’d be highly organized, meticulous and able to get sh*t done quickly, calmly and methodically (at least 90% of the time – because nobody’s perfect).
None of that scares you away, because you have some experience and a few processes up your sleeve, to know how to handle it. But while your organization, communication and spreadsheet skills are tight, you’d walk in here ready and super keen to learn way more. We’re all about learning, so you’ll fit right in here.
THERE ARE SOME QUALITIES YOU MUST POSSESS...
- 1-3 years experience in supply chain - logistics, purchasing, supplier management (we would also consider equivalent educational experience)
- Experience handling international shipments (ocean and air) and working with overseas suppliers is desirable (but not essential)
- Excellent communication and relationship management skills
- Ability to negotiate with suppliers and carriers/ freight forwarders
- Good understanding of production and distribution
- The ability to develop processes and continuously improve them
- Strong organization and analytical skills, with great attention to detail (Intermediate to advanced knowledge of Excel/ Google Sheets )
- Proven ability to work independently under minimum supervision
- The desire to work collaboratively in a team within a fast-paced, agile environment
