With its head office in Adelaide, Nobles is Australia’s leading specialist provider of lifting and rigging equipment, technical services and engineering design providing complete solutions for its clients’ heaviest and most complex lifting requirements. With a company history dating back over 100 years, Nobles has 12 locations nationally supplying and servicing geographically dispersed and highly demanding industries including mining, oil and gas, cranes and construction, shipping and transport, manufacturing, defence, utilities as well as other agricultural and industrial sectors.
Reporting to the GM of Products and Marketing, the Supply Chain Manager will lead the end-to-end supply chain operations and manage a diverse team of purchasing, logistics, forecasting, planning and inventory control professionals. Working closely with the product operations and marketing functions, the appointee will be responsible for driving continuous improvement and balancing sales growth and cost containment goals.
Applications are encouraged from suitably qualified professionals with strong commercial acumen and negotiation skills. The successful candidate will be a strategic thinker capable of optimising the supply chain function from demand planning to procurement, logistics, inventory and stock management. The ability to manage an annual spend of circa $20m, a supply chain with more than 5,000 active SKUs, up to 10,000 customers and over 100 suppliers will be pivotal to ensuring Nobles has the right products, at the right cost, in the right quantities, in the right place and at the right time. Sourcing experience in the international market (particularly Asia) and the capacity to maximise the return on recent investments in cutting edge planning systems will be well regarded.
Nobles is an equal opportunity employer with an inclusive and non-political culture, backed up by a strong set of organisational values that encourage and reward performance.
This is a rare opportunity for a proven supply chain professional to influence on a national scale from head office in Adelaide.
