Location: Inner Suburbs Melbourne, Victoria
Job Type: Permanent / Full Time
Contact: David Goodrem

Six Degrees is proud to be representing Deliciou, a plant-based brand on a mission to make plant-based cooking easy and delicious for everyone!

Having just celebrated their 5th birthday, Deliciou is achieving well beyond its years as a company that continues to shake up what it means to eat plant-based by creating fun, innovative and delicious products that will simply make people want to eat more plants. With triple digit year on year growth since its inception, you can find Deliciou across the globe, both online and in some local and international supermarkets, with key markets in the United States, United Kingdom, Europe and Australia…..and they are only just getting started!

To continue this incredible growth wave, the business is investing in the role of Head of Supply Chain. It's a rare opportunity for a role like this to come about; one where the company is small enough that you will feel incredibly needed and impactful, and one where the company is big enough that you will feel challenged and stretched by fast (really fast!) global growth. Reporting directly to the CEO, you will be responsible for the development and execution of an integrated supply chain strategy to ensure efficient and cost effective manufacturing and transportation of products globally.

In this role, you will be required to:
* Design and establish a robust supply chain function which includes planning, domestic and international logistics, quality control, along with sourcing and contract management
* Implement technology to deliver efficiencies, increase quality and lower costs
* Develop relationships with key suppliers including contract manufacturers, key ingredient suppliers and third party logistics providers across multiple countries
* Lead overseas expansion strategies and projects, whilst ensuring continuous improvement of service levels and reducing costs through innovative supply solutions

We are seeking interest from proven supply chain leaders who have delivered expansion into international and domestic markets. It is expected that you will have a breadth of skills that includes network design and planning, along with a track record of success in negotiating successful outcomes with third party suppliers. Any exposure to eCommerce will be seen as highly advantageous along with experience within the food sector. Above all this though it will be your problem solving skills, grit, drive, energy and entrepreneurial spirit that will see you succeed.

Why Deliciou?

You'll be joining one of Australia's fastest growing and most successful plant based companies, which comes with a lot of responsibility but also a tonne of fun perks and benefits! Sink your teeth into a competitive remuneration package, employee share options, flexibility, autonomy and some AWESOME food perks - including weekly tasting sessions and recipe demos!
