    Supply Chain Excellence Lead

    ‘In res’, the purpose of this role is to lift the EMEA supply chain team into a class-A operating organization which aims to support the business strategy and includes the set-up of new supply chains. Are you a driven supply chain expert looking to leave footprints in a global organization? Is the quest for continuous improvement a big part of your work ethos? Read on!

    Bunge is a global key food production company specialized in edible oils and fats. We are supplying the majority of food companies in segments such as Confectionary, Bakery, Nutrition, Plant based food solutions and more. Herewith, the supply chain department is playing a crucial role in the delivery of our quality products in perfect order to our customers.

    In this new role as Supply Chain Excellence Lead EMEA, you will become the safeguard of continuous improvement for all supply chain processes. In essence, you are a central member of our team and you drive the development of people, processes, and tools to support our strategic excellence roadmap.

    More on Supply Chain Excellence Lead role

    You will act as a real connector and align, consult, and instruct many stakeholders on relevant topics regarding supply chain. Think of Operations, Sales, Finance, Business Development, Sustainability and other. You will report directly to the Manager Planning, but will oversee a scope covering the A-Z of our supply chain. Besides developing the supply chain function further, you will play a key role in the design and implementation of new supply chains as we continue to develop our product portfolio in for example, plant based and/or organic.

    The setting is special: you will work in a multidisciplinary team, in which you will focus on increasing our Perfect Order Fulfillment and lead various projects to optimize our supply chains. Standing firm in your shoes while walking on your excellence roadmap path, you successfully manage the hurdles on the way, and you are aware that the true strength of our team lies in working together and improving each other daily. Alone, you will achieve great things, together, we will achieve even more!

    Some of the hard skills we hope to see in your resume:

    • You worked with SAP or other ERP and have mastered Excel;
    • English and (preferably) Dutch language proficiency;
    • Certification in Lean Six Sigma, APICS and/or problem solving is a big advantage.

    3 reasons why this is (not) a perfect role for you:

    Yes, if you have completed a Master's degree, such as Supply Chain Management of (Technical) Business Administration;
    Yes, if you are a natural connector who gets stakeholders on board with a mix of data driven insights & ability to influence occurring dilemmas with your problem-solving mindset;
    Yes, if you gained experience in project management, working with KPI’s and drive continuous improvement.

    Not, if it makes you nervous when a lot of stakeholders pull on you at once;
    Not, if you don’t possess a strong sense of urgency and ownership;
    Not, if you are finished learning and developing in your career.

    What We Offer

    A key role in an organization with colleagues around the world, who are dedicated to improving the global Agri-Food value chain, one day at a time. Together, we bring food from where it’s produced to where it’s needed. We do this in an informal culture where an entrepreneurial mindset is valued. Being a global company with a constant need for innovation, a broad variety of challenges and development opportunities can support your long-term career at Bunge.
