About the Bright Futures Programme
We’re looking to recruit undergraduates with flair and motivation to join our Bright Futures programme, offering you a huge amount of invaluable business experience. At Pernod Ricard you can actually make an impact, and many of our placement students have returned to Pernod Ricard.
Placements will commence in June 2022, and will be based in our West London offices on Chiswick Business Park. We offer a fantastic package including £18,000 salary, generous annual leave entitlement and a product allowance to spend on our brands.
The Operations function at Pernod Ricard UK is responsible for the management and development of the company’s inbound supply chain, customer service, quality and procurement activities. The function’s objective is to provide very high levels of service whilst minimising operating costs and working capital. Key focus areas for the team are: efficient and effective supply and demand planning processes; robust inventory and duty management procedures; engaged and collaborative customer service activities; expert 3PL warehousing and logistics management; all of which are underpinned with a keen focus on quality, sustainability and continuous improvement.
The Procurement team works with stakeholders to respond to business needs and challenges, and to deliver value and cost-effective solutions. POS purchasing and inventory management is led by procurement to support the customer and brand marketing teams in their requirements for customer and consumer activations.
Working across all the Operational functions, you will provide support to the Procurement team, on tenders and category review processes, and the Supply Chain team, working on forecasting, demand planning, and stock replenishment. You will be supporting the Quality team, working on consumer feedback and technical preparation and assistance. The Operations team is central to all that we do in Pernod Ricard, working closely with many other teams across the business, and it’s essential we get our prestigious wine and spirits brands to our customers in the most efficient manner possible whilst delivering exceptional customer service.
You’ll gain fantastic exposure to the full supply chain operation within the business, from working with Procurement to ensure we are working with the right suppliers with the right commercial terms in place, through to supporting with the Sales and Operation Planning processes with the Supply Chain team. You’ll be able to build internal stakeholder relationships, gain exposure to commercial negotiations, and develop your analytical skills.
