Well here we go - after 96 days ad hoc, 180 days of a temporary contract kicked off this lunchtime. I hope it will go permanent in May 2008!
My new role is all about Retail Operations across our 7 Garden Centres. Biggest task is to try to improve stock turn in our warehouse and to ensure all deliveries are booked in, avoiding all sorts of issues. I also have to re-write a couple of Ops manuals and sort out a plethora of suppliers into some manageable National Accounts. Plenty of store visit action and hopefully a few 'quick wins' from 'low hanging fruit' as the bullshit peddlers of Somerfield used to have it.
