Supply Chain Trainee
As a Supply Chain Trainee you could be placing purchase orders for multi-million pound contracts or helping to improve policies and procedures, to figuring out how to store the hundreds of thousands of items needed to build a submarine.
What does the traineeship include?
The Supply Chain function is responsible for researching, sourcing, buying, storing, maintaining and delivering every piece of equipment that goes onto our submarines or into our buildings and facilities. Moreover, this must all be delivered at the right time, for the right cost and to the right quality standards.
Having high quality, good value products available at the right time for our build programmes is critical to our ability to meet business deadlines. Supply Chain Trainees gain experience in every area of the function: Procurement, Material Availability, Logistics & Transport, Strategy, Governance and Capability.
The Supply Chain Traineeship is a three-year scheme, during which you will be developed through four-month placements around the Supply Chain function.
Working as Assistant Buyers, the projects and placements undertaken by trainees are diverse; from placing purchase orders for multi-million pound contracts, to helping to improve policies and procedures, to figuring out how to store the hundreds of thousands of items needed to build a submarine. As a result, trainees develop an in-depth understanding of Supply Chain activities and processes, plus all the skills needed to become a confident member of the future Supply Chain function.
