Working in our regional Supply Chain teams
This isn’t about restocking stores. This is about feeding families.
About our team
Keeping our stores fully stocked with the products you know and love isn’t an easy job – that’s where our outstanding Supply Chain teams come in. From stock procurement to store availability, our Supply Chain teams guarantee a reliable and efficient flow of goods from supplier to customer.
Whether it’s baked beans or drills, every item arrives in store as the result of a complex journey, managed by Supply Chain. Linking suppliers, warehouses, Regional Distribution Centres and stores, their work is fundamental to our success. They maximise availability and freshness whilst minimising waste, analysing data to forecast future demand and increase efficiency.
But our work goes beyond availability and efficiency; our teams oversee our Seasonal Campaigns and Limited Offers to accurately anticipate stock levels and drive our weekly turnover, as well as managing cost control, compliance, and quality assurance. Our work impacts every part of the business, and we are proud to make a meaningful contribution to the success of our stores. Find out more about our teams below.

What we’re looking for
It takes a blend of different skills to excel in this team. Firstly, it requires real attention to detail – whether you’re ordering stock, liaising with regional teams, or anticipating seasonal demand, precision and accuracy are vital to our performance.
Strong numerical skills are also key: submitting orders, forecasting stock demand, and analysing historical data are fundamental to our team, so confidence with numbers is essential.
Finally, communication and determination are both critical to your role. With a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, you’ll need the ability to build and maintain strong working relationships, and achieving this in a fast-paced, demanding environment requires drive and dedication to deliver results.
