Title:  Maintenance Stores Manager


The name might be different but our iconic range remains the same and includes Nutri-Grain, Special K, Sultana Bran and Coco Pops (cereals), LCMs and Pringles (snacks).  Our purpose drives what we do, to create better days and a place at the table for everyone through our trusted food brands. 

Based at our manufacturing site at Botany, the role of Maintenance Stores Manager plays a key role in ensuring maintenance teams have the right tools and parts on hand to carry out their preventative and reactive works. This is done through the effective inventory management and ordering of spare parts for this 24x7 site. 
You will be a part of a team that prides itself on a strong history of production of our well-loved breakfast cereals right here in Australia!   

A taste of what you’ll be doing:-

  • Provide leadership and daily direction of three storepersons
  • Manage ordering for all stock and non-stock parts on site through stores team, monitor delivery times and follow up to ensure parts are available as required
  • Ensure parts kitting is complete to support Maintenance planning and scheduling functions
  • Liaise with Purchasing, Sourcing and Accounts Payable teams to ensure orders are placed with supplier, fulfilled and paid on time
  • Support the Maintenance Manager with the implementation of Continuous improvement programme by leading the Maintenance Stores project stream
  • Work with Maintenance staff to continuously review the store inventory level to reduce store budget by identifying deleted items, redundant parts due to replacing, renewing or making a system redundant in the plant, adding new parts as identified & maintaining SAP Bill of Materials for all spare parts

Your recipe for success:-
With previous Maintenance Stores Management or Order Fulfilment experience it’s ideal that you will have had experience across the full lifecycle of ordering, receipting & issuing of goods.  Previous working experience in a similar role within FMCG & food manufacturing would be highly advantageous as you will understand the Quality & Food Safety, GMP and sanitation requirements.
A trade qualification is also advantageous, either mechanical or electrical to ensure the parts kitting process is effective.
We’re looking for someone with strong verbal and written communication skills, who is a problem solver, a team player and pro-active, who can see where their role fits into the bigger picture and will work towards our shared goals and objectives.
