Stock Controller

We are currently recruiting for a Stock Controller for our Paignton based client. A key requirement for this position is familiarisation with stock control systems, and excellent Excel ability. They currently use Orderwise, however similar stock control system experience would also transfer well i.e. - SAP or SAGE. The key focus of this role is to keep stock levels under control, utilising the system to improve purchasing. This is an office-based role; however, the warehouse is on site, so you have a clear line of communication, and will be working closely with the Quality Manager and Purchasing Team. You will also be interacting with suppliers, and will be tasked with arranging supplier agreements, and make decisions as to when to call off stock or pay for storage. You will conduct internal audits, as well as prepare for external audits. ISO9001 & Environmental System 14001 knowledge would be very helpful, as well as a technical sector background (mechanical, electrical or engineering). You will need the ability to extract key data from spreadsheets. You will need a clear understanding of how the shop floor operates, so previous warehouse, logistics or stores related experience would stand you in good stead too. You will need excellent communication ability, and commercial awareness, as you will be required to influence and drive the team, and capable of contract management and negotiation with suppliers.

  • Stock Management & Control.
  • Stock counts (twice yearly).
