Job Description

Are you an Analyst who gets a buzz out of using IT systems to be forward thinking, dynamic and help the business to plan ahead? Do you have fantastic communication and relationship building skills to influence and collaborate to deliver success on all product supply issues?


Then look no further!


What you’ll do


The aim of this role is to provide great availability of products to customers, through either our distribution centres or direct to our branches and customers. Having great availability of products is essential to our business, and supply chain analysts ensure that all touch points of a product's journey are aligned, from the supplier, through to purchasing, distribution and branch teams.It's essential that we carry just the right amount of stock in the business, too little and we can't supply customers, too much and we overwhelm our distribution centres and branches.


Working in an ever changing environment you’ll take responsibility for the availability and stock budget for anything up to 2000 products that our customers need.  Utilising your exceptional communication skills and stakeholder management skills you will act as the key operational interface between supplier, warehouses, buying, marketing and branch operations for all product supply issues.


Is this you?


We need you to have great analytical and communication skills and be able to plan ahead using the various IT systems we have and make sure that you’re always on the lookout for opportunities to increase availability and profitability. You will need to be able to make compelling arguments to support your analysis, and build excelling relationships that always keep our customers front of mind. Our business is growing, with many opportunities for colleague growth and development - you will be ready to grasp new things, and stay adaptable and flexible as our ways of working flex to a changing environment. A can do attitude is a must, and we are a team that likes to have fun together along the way!


What’s in it for you?


You’ll be supported by some of the best training & development in the industry. Our impressive internal succession programme means, whatever it is you do with us,  it will be easy for you to learn, grow and develop across the Travis Perkins Group.


We’ll also equip you with a benefits package that grows as you grow with the company:


- Competitive performance related bonus

- Save-as-you-earn scheme

- Buy-as-you-earn scheme

- Contributory pension scheme

- Colleague discount across a variety of Group businesses including; 20% off at Wickes and 30% off at Tile Giant, plus special discounts across our Trade Merchanting businesses.



You’ve probably heard of us, you’d have seen our trucks on the road, and more than likely would have seen a bag of our sand on your neighbours driveway. But there is more to us than just that. With over 20 businesses in the group, spanning over 1,900+ locations, we are the UK's largest distributor of building materials to the building, construction and home improvement markets.


We have over 25,000+ colleagues that are committed to providing an unrivaled level of service to our customers. Everyone works hard together to deliver results, but most importantly, have some fun along the way!
