Our client is a tech start-up, based in Central London who aim to enable better data driven collaboration across supply chains.

Supply chain data is messy. Operations teams waste thousands of hours each day looking for the latest data and manually transcribing it between spreadsheets, portals and myriad legacy source systems. This time could be better spent managing exceptions and collaborating with customers and suppliers.

These problems also make it difficult for companies and consumers to understand how their goods have been produced and lead to increased costs, wastage and suboptimal availability.

Focussed on connectivity, collaboration and diversity every day, both in the problems they work on, and how they build our company, they believe curiosity, ownership, autonomy, transparency and trust are key to building successful teams.This is a graduate entry Research & Operations position, paying GBP21-25k per annum depending on experience.
