Based at our state-of-the-art facility in Kempston.
Are you a Supply Chain Manager looking to lead supply chain and warehouse operations for a technology manufacturer?
Are you a problem solver with great knowledge of ERP systems?
Here at Leidos, we design and manufacture security and detection automation found in airports across the world – you’ll have likely been through one of our systems if you have been on holiday recently.
At our site in Kempston, we build and test this equipment before it is shipped off to its final destination. Our Supply Chain and Warehouse Operations play a vital role in supporting production processes and ensuring domestic and international shipments meet our customers’ expectations.
What is great about this role?
Autonomy – you will not be micro-managed (your manager will be in the US) and you are empowered to make decisions.
We have one product line – this makes means you can focus on perfecting one process.
Development – both for yourself and the team. We are keen to develop the skills within each team from self-led learning via our online learning portal and peer-led through knowledge sharing and peer-to-peer training.
You’re a problem solver, able to identify potential issues which might affect the delivery of a project. You’re proficient in learning and using ERP systems (we use Costpoint), able to interpret and use transactional data and reports, looking out for any potential issues which could affect our ability to deliver on projects.
