Starbucks is the premier roaster and retailer of specialty coffee in the world. Starbucks has an exceptionally complex supply chain: from coffee, milk, and sugar to paper, plastics, and pastries- and everything in between!
With ambitious sustainability and supply chain programmes underway and goals in sight, they are now seeking to hire a values-driven leader to implement these goals.
In this newly created role, reporting to the Director of Supply Chain, you will be accountable for managing a new internal network and workstreams across Starbucks EMEA, focusing on both suppliers and licensees.
You will also be:
An internal subject matter expert on topics including product compliance, ethical standards, human rights, and supply chain analysis, taking the organisation above and beyond full supply chain compliance status.
Leading as both a global and regional supply chain expert, using your knowledge to verify exposure to forest-risk commodities, putting in place thorough actions where needed.
Collaborating with other teams across themes, including sustainable packaging to ensure waste and circularity workstreams, encouraging the phase-out of singular-use plastic, and creating innovative solutions wherever you can, with the support of your team.
Providing ideas, using emerging technologies and your knowledge to bring solutions to Starbucks's supply chain.
With many critical elements to consider and on an EMEA-wide scale, you will be playing a transformative role for the business and pushing it forward to excellence throughout the entire Starbucks value chain. This role will suit you if you are ambitious, impact-driven, and thrive in a culture-rich environment.
You will also benefit from having the following:
Relevant experience in senior project management in matrixed, cross-functional teams with exposure to corporate sustainability environmental policy and understanding how it interconnects with wider business models.
Demonstrable expertise in how to influence stakeholders both internally and externally on ESG and the importance of supply chain excellence and traceability.
An adaptable and solutions-oriented outlook. You will be covering varying regions, commitments, and challenges and may have to tailor your approach depending on the tasks at hand.
