A good job description should combine essential information with compelling details to target the right Supply Chain & Operations talent. The more accurate you make a job description on the front end, the more likely you are to accurately portray the role to candidates.
Define a Clear Job title – Aim to make your job title specific and keep it concise. Type your selected title into a job board such as LinkedIn or Monster, and compare your position to what is listed. If it doesn’t align, consider alternatives. If you are looking for particular expertise, list it in the job title. For example, listing your job as “Commodity Manager – Indirect” or “Dsitribution Center Manager – Food & Bev” will ensure clarity about the expertise you are looking for.
Create A Compelling Summary – This should include an overview of your company and what you expect from the position. Will this role be expected to lead a turn-around, drive a major transformation, or help achieve 50% business growth? Include those attention grabbing and unique details! Sell your company culture and the value proposition to the candidates here.
Get Specific With Your Duties and Responsibilities – Supply Chain & Operations candidates want to know the specific details. Depending on the role, add in details like number of facilities, facility size/s, total workforce, total spend, number of suppliers/providers and geographies, specific technology used to run the operations or business, and other key figures relevant to the position.
Define The Relationships – Define how this role fits into your organization – who it reports to and who reports to the role. If this is a new position or functional area, include those details as well.
Focusing on these key areas will help you to attract the best talent for your Supply Chain or Operations role.
