Job Description

Our Client:

A dynamic and innovative organization in the consumer goods industry.

Your Role:

We are seeking a Supply Planning & Contract Manufacturing Manager which is a strategic and multifaceted position that requires a strong blend of supply chain management, contract manufacturing oversight, and cross-functional collaboration. The main responsibilities include managing relationships with contract manufacturers to ensure timely and quality production, negotiating and maintaining contracts, resolving supply chain issues, and implementing continuous improvement initiatives. The role also involves supply planning responsibilities such as overseeing stock availability, leading the Sales & Operations Planning process, maintaining inventory levels, and coordinating with the logistics team for efficient operations.

Must Haves:

Ideal candidates for this role should have 10-15 years of experience in the FMCG industry, with at least 5 years specifically in contract manufacturing management and supply chain planning. Previous roles in plant operations and logistics would be advantageous. Strong communication, negotiation, and leadership skills are essential, along with the ability to collaborate effectively with internal teams and external partners. The role reports to the Operations Head based in South Africa and is located in Johannesburg.

Managing Expectations:

At Mindfield we are driven by mutually agreed KPIs and service levels. Exceptional results can only be delivered when we understand both our key stakeholders clients and candidates. Keeping this in mind we would request that when applying for a role do take cognizance of the “must haves” to avoid disappointment. Sometimes positions take time to close and there could be delay in us responding to you but as a thumb rule if you do not hear from us in 7-8 working days post applying for the role then the resume has not been shortlisted and would be kept on the database for other roles. Look forward to a long term relationship…Mindfield…making a difference
