At Sourceful, we are on a mission to help businesses to do better - environmentally, socially and economically. The world needs action on climate, and businesses also need affordable solutions.

Sourceful helps businesses with product sourcing for their supply chains, from packaging (boxes, tape, envelopes, stationery) to finished goods using technology to digitise and optimise the sourcing flow. 75% of the carbon impact in an industry comes from the supply chain (product and logistics). With the development of new materials, better energy sources and consumer awareness, the momentum is shifting, but we want to accelerate that change.

Sourceful was founded in June 2020 by Wing Chan, Ex-CMO and CTO at The Hut Group (LSE:THG £1Bn in Revenues in 2019) and is Venture Capital backed by some of the leading angels and investors in Europe.

We are looking for an ambitious Operations Coordinator who wants to join a mission-driven start up. The role will be working closely with our suppliers and warehouse team to build, manage and optimise sustainable supply chains for our clients.

Responsibilities

  • Building and managing a global logistics network:
  • Coordinating shipments between our manufacturers, transportation suppliers, warehouse, and clients.
  • Support our global and domestic supply chains across multiple modes of transport including ocean, air, ground freight, and parcel.
  • Ensure an incredible customer experience by tracking domestic and international shipments and resolving delivery issues.
  • Supplier management; managing and monitoring costs, service levels, and supporting supplier sourcing and negotiations.
  • Help create SOPs to reduce errors and waste within our warehouse and with our suppliers.
  • Using data to build a more sustainable supply chain:
  • Build, monitor, and manage transportation metrics such as on-time delivery, costs, and carbon footprint.
  • Work with our warehouse to help build, monitor, and manage warehouse metrics such as inventory levels and usage rates.
  • In general, identify opportunities to improve efficiency and reduce errors and waste.
  • Supporting new product and software development:
  • Working with our engineering teams, you will be an integral part of designing our proprietary WMS and logistics software products.

About You
