Role Title: Global Supply Chain Specialist

Overall Purpose of the Job:

Join a rapidly growing telecoms engineering and manufacturing company based in Cambridgeshire as a Global Supply Chain Specialist. This position offers an opportunity to lead and optimise the supply chain and procurement process for a newly secured Tier 1 customer contract.

Success in this role requires managing a complex and diverse supply chain to meet high customer expectations. The ideal candidate will have a proven track record in implementing robust supply chain systems that support rolling forecasts, maximise stock turns, and minimise inventory liability.

We seek a dynamic individual who thrives in a fast-paced environment and is dedicated to developing a world-class operations function to support the company's growth potential. You will handle both short-term tactical tasks, such as expediting deliveries, and long-term strategic actions, such as building strong supplier relationships to align key component supply with business objectives.

Major Responsibilities and Tasks:

  • Manage daily procurement and supply chain operations
  • Source products and negotiate with suppliers
  • Oversee the forecasting process and manage any resulting liabilities
  • Report on progress and issues affecting order fulfilment to senior management and stakeholders
  • Maintain inventory levels, stock turn reports, and KPIs
  • Identify and implement process improvements within the supply chain



  • Experience scaling manufacturing and order fulfilment for a Tier 1 global customer
  • Extensive supply chain experience in an engineering or technical manufacturing environment
  • Strong financial management skills with a focus on KPIs
  • Excellent planning, communication, influencing, and negotiation abilities
  • Proficiency in IT


  • Experience in a similar role within a high-growth environment
  • Flexible working from home with occasional visits to the office near Cambridge as needed
  • Travel as required

This role is ideal for someone looking to advance their career and make a significant impact in a growing company.
