Within the Consumer and Retail practice at Finlay Gardener there is a strong focus on E2E Supply Chain. This includes Product Development, Procurement, Engineering, Quality and Compliance, Manufacturing and Operations, as well as the traditional customer facing disciplines such as logistics, warehousing, S&OP, Demand Planning, and Packaging Distribution.

Over the last few years, Supply Chain has become more demand driven than supply driven. This means a shift in culture throughout the whole organisation whereby Finance and Supply Chain specialists play a greater role on a local and global basis.

We see organisations centralise functions such as Supply Chain Operations and Procurement to reduce SKU’s, reduce costs, have local quality checks, and have quicker and more efficient reaction times to client demand. Gone are the days of filling up warehouses!

Being more efficient and demand driven does not only reduce costs but also helps facilitate growth and competitiveness by launching new products quicker to market.

At Finlay Gardener, we are in constant contact with high potentials. Whether it be mandate driven or not, we make it our business and passion to have a go-to network of talented individuals!

Every company, whether a large multi-national or SME, is after this talent. Maintaining a warm relationship and knowing this talent market is crucial in marketing our client’s opportunities. Our network ranges from middle management to c-level in a variety of organisations
