Who we are looking for?

* Identify, manage and formulate mitigation strategies for supply chain risks that may impact new submarines in-service
* Liaise with the MOD and Babcock teams to ensure a smooth transition from build supply chains to in-service supply chain support

The experience you'll bring
* Considerable experience of supply chain management and supply chain strategy in order to lead this vital programme of the next generation of submarines.
* Highly experienced in leading teams, collaborating with others and implementing changes.
* Highly efficient communicator at all levels with the ability to hold oneself in a complex argument.

You will need to satisfy security requirements. This may require you to hold or be eligible/capable of achieving 'Security Check' (SC) clearance.
