Procurement & Distribution Supervisor

Technical and Operations
Christchurch, Canterbury
February 21, 2021
  • Expanding Joinery Operation
  • Broadly Based Role
  • Fantastic Team Culture

MWF is a manufacturing joiner that has invested in new technologies and has built a high performing team that has a real passion for delivering excellence and looking for continuous improvements.  A focus on quality, premium service and uncompromised delivery has led to them developing a nationwide client base that brings them repeat business and new customer referrals. 

This newly created role will add additional resource to the planning & production team, so while responsible for the procurement, purchasing and stock control functions, the role will also manage the dispatch and delivery of finished joinery out to site.

As such this role is broad ranging and very customer focussed, that will require a balance between the planning skills for dealing with the detail of purchasing and dispatch and the people skills that will see you very comfortable in working with a full range of suppliers and customers. While being planned and organised is the key, each day will be different and the ability to problem solve and find solutions as part of the team will be critical.

In seeking applications we are looking for experienced individuals who ideally have previous backgrounds in production and manufacturing environments, or conversely other candidates who can bring broader construction sector backgrounds and are looking for a role where their coordination and project management skills can be applied.

MWF is huge on continuous improvement and going the extra mile. If you can see a better way of doing something, they want to hear your ideas. Equally if you can see a colleague who could do with some help, put your hand up!

As such you'll be good with people, show initiative and be proactive enough to jump to and respond to situations as they arise. You will be efficient and detail focussed, but also good at building relationships with clients and generating opportunities by being proactive in responding to needs, whether that is internally in the factory or externally with suppliers/customers.

In return you will be joining a business where people are hard-working but know how to have fun. This is a company where the team works as a cohesive group and where everyone gets to be part of something great.

On offer is a competitive remuneration package plus recognition and reward that is delivered due to its focus on people.

MWF Manufacturing is working exclusively with Echelon Group regarding the recruitment of this position. To be considered you must contact Echelon Group directly as applications through other agencies will not be accepted.
