Are you analytically sharp with a strong drive? Join us as Continuous Improvement & Operations Manager, the bridge between strategy and operations. Lead a dynamic Fulfilment Center (FC) team, improve supply chain operations, and ensure smooth and safe daily operations. You’ll work from our FC in Eindhoven.
Our FC's are the center of operations where our shoppers pick groceries for thousands of customers 7 days per week. Around 700 people work in one FC in shifts, from the early morning until the late evening. From there, the picked groceries are sent to our Hubs, from where they are finally delivered to the customers with our electric vehicles. Using your analytical mindset and charismatic leadership skills you will bring our innovative supply chain to the next level: you analyze our current way of working, propose actionable plans and motivate the team to work with you. Your role is two-sided! You will manage an FC team and daily operations, and use your brainpower to propose and implement well-defined strategies and action plans to structurally improve our supply chain operations. You don’t have to be afraid you’ll sit behind your desk the entire day and no two days will be the same!
When you start in this role you'll be in charge of the entire Fulfilment Center (FC) for around 2 days a week. You will be the Supervisor of the day, and you'll spend this day on the shop floor. During this day you lead +/- 100 Shoppers and their team leads to ensure all groceries leave the FC complete and on time. Under your supervision, people stay happy, safe and there is a smooth, safe and intelligent flow of goods. Supervisor shifts come in day (06:30 - 16:00) and evening (14:00 - 22:00) shifts and can take place every day of the week, including weekends.
The remaining days you will use your operational expertise to implement diverse projects to optimize and scale our operations, so we can continue our incredible growth! With insights gained from the floor and an eye for how processes work, you analyze the workflow of the FC and find efficiency gainers. Soon you’ll have multiple projects under your belt! You usually pilot a project within your own FC first, and manage the roll-out in other FCs when it's a success. You will play a leading role in the innovative supply chain of a disruptive and fast growing online grocery store!
At Picnic, we're proud to be a true innovator in the operational game. Our teams of Data Analysts and Software Developers create all systems in-house. You’ll work with them to deep dive into issues, and together you improve Picnic’s Warehouse Management System.
Are you excited? This is the chance to develop future-proof supply chains and establish the next generation of operational logistics. Our talented, ambitious team takes on big challenges. Come join us!
