Wat ga je doen?

What is this job about?
As Supply Chain Developer and Designer (SCDD) you are part of a driven team. Every SCDD is assigned to a multidisciplinary team in a specific supply chain. Each supply chain is different, because it has its own stakeholders, applications and processes. However there is a need in the team to be able to interchange SCDD's as needed. To safeguard knowledge, you will be primary focused on your own supply chain. A change of supply chain is not taken lightly, however if needed, we expect you to be able to do it. 


Your main responsibility in this role is to maintain and improve the quality of your supply chain. You make process designs and implement new products and solutions for Cross Border Solutions (CBS), the business unit that provides tailor-made delivery solutions to businesses worldwide.  Our clients are companies looking to export/import their products. At the moment the majority of our clients are in The Netherlands, Europe and Asia. CBS makes use of the PostNL logistic infrastructure, therefore your biggest challenge is to create a process design that connects the logistic operation in the Netherlands with the logistic operation abroad. Taking into account the processes, the client’s needs and the commercial network (sales/marketing). This means that you will need to become an specialist by talking to a lot of people within the organisation to get the information that you need for your designs, as well as to implement new solutions. Related to this last, you are responsible for providing working solutions for our customers. Therefore you will be in charge of the project coordination with regards to the implementation of new products (and modifications of existing products) in your supply chain. You are part of a multidisciplinary team, consequently reporting to the product owner, however you manage your own responsibilities, ncluding testing and making sure that the implementation of new products is done properly. Thereafter someone else will take ownership.
