Material Manager

Singapore
Reference No: 13880

What's the role?

We’re looking for a Material Manager to join our Singapore team. This is no ordinary team. Our people come from all different backgrounds with a shared dedication to high performance, consistent results and exceptional customer service.

Who is Hilti?

If you’re new to our industry, you might not have heard of us. We provide leading-edge tools, technologies, software and services for the global construction sector. We have a proud heritage, built over 75 years, and a worldwide reputation for pioneering products and first-rate service. With some 29,000 people in more than 120 countries, we’re a great place for you to show us your worth as you learn, grow and carve-out your career.

What does the role involve?

You’ll enthuse us with your expertise and creative approach in inventory management so as to achieve total customer satisfaction. The responsibilities include efficient management of inventory to ensure that sufficient quantities of products are on hand to fill customer orders while minimizes the provision for slow moving.

Day to day, you will drive systematic control and maintenance of inventory levels through close co-operation with sales, marketing and finance via our sample/demo tool issuing, promotion event, local item purchasing, and other inventory related activities. In addition, to insure orders are fulfilled you will need to liaise closely with warehouse personnel on stock status and availability. You will also need to partner with regional material mangers to ensure that optimum stock levels of product are maintained to comply with the market requirement, including being part of the monthly sales and operational planning(S&OP) process.

Our logistics operation is special because we own our whole supply chain, something that’s almost unique for a company of our size.

What do we offer?

We’ll give you what you need to excel in your role, including ongoing training from the start. Your responsibilities will be great and, with them, we'll give you the freedom and autonomy to do whatever it takes to deliver outstanding results.

Show us what you’re made of and we’ll offer you opportunities to move around the business – to work abroad, experience different job functions and tackle different markets. It’s a great way to find the right match for your ambitions and achieve the exciting career you’re after.
On top of these, we have a thorough people review process, unlike any we know of in any other business. We screen everyone in the company in a yearly career performance matching process. It means we can pair talent with opportunities - developing our people in their current roles or challenging them to work in new ways or in new places. It’s how we find the right fit and further our teams personally and professionally.

Why should you apply?

We have an excellent mix of people, which we believe makes for a more vibrant, more innovative, more productive team. So, if you’ve never worked in construction, that’s fine with us. Success at Hilti is down to teamwork and ability, no matter what your background.

What you need is:

  • A Master or Bachelor in Logistics / Supply Chain Management or related disciplines
  • 4-6 years’ related working experience
  • Proficient with ERP system, purchasing, inventory modules or SAP/APO
  • Strong analytical skill in data analysis and reporting
  • Team player with strong customer mind-set
  • Leadership, good communication and interpersonal skills
  • Well organized, self-motivated and a “can-do” attitude

“You get a unique opportunity to experience all different functions of the supply chain – and, for many people, to do it overseas. We really encourage our teams to challenge the way things are done. If you can make a process simpler, do it, show us.”

- Fabrice, Head of Global Logistics Services
