Perstorp Waspik B.V. is looking for a

Supply Chain Planner

What will you be doing?

Good planning ensures that commitments made to customers are delivered by production in time and with good quality. It is your daily job that everything runs smoothly and you get everyone lined up for the work that is coming. Supply (people, product, packaging material and machine capacity) and demand (commercial sales) should always match to ensure good deliveries. Because of your central position, you will have a lot of contact with your colleagues in different departments. Your analytical view ensures you can fix the issues that come your way during the day. Furthermore you will be exposed to the broader Perstorp-community through our Operational Excellence programs. Here you will interact with planners from other sites, global S&OP managers, process managers or global ERP specialists.

What does a typical day look like?

When you enter the site in the morning, you put on your protective equipment to make a run past the control rooms and ask production for an update about last evenings production. Thereafter you will send out an update of the last planning status. Then you will take a look at the orders entered by customer service that require planning. Together with colleagues you will proceed to fulfill daily planning tasks. You will look at potential choices you need to make in order to guarantee on-time in-full (OTIF) deliveries. In parallel you will investigate if we have enough raw materials available to safeguard production for the coming days.

At 9:00 and 13.45 you will attend the daily planning meeting. Here you will discuss bottlenecks for the coming days. Part of this is investigating if we need to move shipments around in order to accommodate dangerous goods limitations. Checking whether additional supply of raw materials is required is a main task as well. If needed you will assist in call off activities to acquire raw materials in time.

After this you will review a few cycle counts done by the Warehouse and make corrections in the ERP system. Before going home you check if any rush orders have come that require your attention. At the end of the day you make sure shipments for tomorrow are ready and all orders for the coming week are planned and confirmed.

What do we expect?

We are continuously improving and so are you! Excellent planning skills and a solution-orientated mind are needed, as well as being able to communicate clearly to get the message across in Dutch and English. You are proactive, take ownership of your work and show initiative. Attention for detail and affinity with numbers and calculations are essential for the job. You know how to deal with stressful situations and you’re able to prioritize. You have a minimum of 3 years experience in a similar position, preferably in a production environment. In addition, you have very good Excel skills and experience in working with ERP systems like SAP.
