Supply Chain & Logistics
Supply Chain & Logistics
The role of the Supply Chain Management department is to coordinate the optimal movement of product from supplier to consumer.
Our Head Office and regional based supply chain teams all work in tandem with suppliers to optimise orders, maximise availability for our customers in-store, and ensure that only the freshest products are available to our customers. Each week the team forecasts our promotions and manages how and where these will be presented in-store. The department also constantly places orders with suppliers based in Ireland and in many countries across Europe and this needs to be carefully planned to ensure the right amount of stock arrives at the right time. You will possess top-class organisational skills and an eye for detail to work in this critical part of our business.
Logistics is all about providing the right product in the right place, and at the right time to our customers. This is our company’s core functionality and the Logistics department plays a key role in helping our teams in the regional distribution centres to deliver on this vital requirement. As part of this, the department manages contracts and rates for a large amount of haulage providers ensuring that products reach our customers in a timely and cost-efficient manner.
The Logistics department is also responsible for future-proofing our business, ensuring that our warehouse infrastructure, management solutions and systems are designed to sustain the business into 2021 and beyond. For example, if our warehouses require additional storage capacity, you will need to source contract partners who can deliver it within budget and on time.
You will bring innovation, forward-thinking and dedication to this department, which in turn will enhance your career with valuable insight into almost every facet of our business processes and practices.
At Lidl we are committed to looking after you not only at work, but also in your personal life. This means that when it comes to your benefits package, we mean more than just the competitive salaries we offer. We have listed some below, but you can read about all of the various benefits we offer on our benefits page under Life at Lidl.
We're fully dedicated to your personal and professional development to help you reach your potential.
Having time off to spend however you wish is essential for your physical and mental wellbeing. At Lidl, we provide up to 25 days paid annual leave each year plus 9 statutory days.
All employees are entitled to join the Lidl Pension Scheme after a qualifying period. This benefit is provided by the company allowing you to save for your retirement.
From time to time we all unfortunately fall ill. In order to reduce the burden when this occurs, Lidl generously provides 20 days paid sick leave (after 6 months of service). The necessary medical certificates may be required depending on the length of leave taken.
Throughout the year, we promote wellness initiatives to support your safety and wellbeing at Lidl. Initiatives range from supporting your physical and mental health to ensuring your safety in the workplace.
We provide a generous remuneration top up for maternity and adoption leave to encourage new mothers to take that time out to bond with their new arrival. Statutory leave allows fathers to take 2 weeks leave to enjoy the arrival of their newborn or newly adopted child. At Lidl, we offer employees a generous remuneration top up to supplement this leave.
Using the Bike to Work scheme, Lidl can help you attain a brand-new bike and safety equipment worth up to €1,000 of tax relief after a qualifying period of service. You can also utilise a salary sacrifice arrangement to pay for the bike over a 6-month period so that you can save up to 51% of the retail price.
