Function Overview

The Planning & MRP system solution architect is a new and exciting role in the organisation. You will be in charge of leading the definition, architecture, implementation, process documentation and support of supply chain planning and MRP solutions from a business perspective. Our objective is to develop and maintain a Master Production Schedule, across the extended enterprise, dynamically driving multi-site/multi-level material and capacity requirements. You will liaise with multiple planning departments (at group and in markets) as well as Contract manufacturers to define and build adapted solutions matching stakeholders’ expectations. You will participate in supplier selections and be collaborating with the IT department and external business partners during implementation. Once solutions are live, you will audit process adherence, identify and drive improvement initiatives to keep the solution aligned to business needs. You should possess strong leadership and communication abilities to influence key stakeholders and clients you will interface with. This role is based in Singapore but will most likely require some travel to our manufacturing locations and offices (Malaysia / Philippines / UK).
