Inventory manager bij syncreon

Syncreon logo

Help us create supply chain synergy by managing our site inventory accuracy and availability. As a service organization, our focus is the customer. To serve our customers, we have to build and maintain strong relationships, ensuring that client complaints and queries are handled within SLA. Quite the challenge in a job that’s more than just a job.

This is how it’s done: managing our site inventory


You’ll be the first point of escalation for clients and our parties for all issues related to site inventory accuracy and inventory availability. Our advanced site is a recently set up facility, equipped with the latest technologies and automated solutions. Your goal? Supporting our customer transforming this high-tech site into a world-leading facility. Creating excellence requires daily communication with your counterparts in our clients’ and client vendors’ organizations. But that’s not all: you’ll be maintaining and improving efficiency and quality of work by managing our inventory control team. How? By monitoring and managing business continuity and succession planning.

Some of your duties include:

  • Monitoring defined KPI’s and Quality Metrics and reporting accidents or near misses;
  • Facilitating close relationships with all operational departments to ensure smooth information flow to and from clients and site stakeholders;
  • Acting as a coach or mentor to other staff by establishing clear expectations and setting up training material;
  • Preparing and executing successful audits and monitoring timely and correct execution of our customer and vendor reconciliation process;
  • Reporting business analysis, including the preparation of weekly, monthly, quarterly, and executive business review decks.

Even though you’ll be working normal working hours, we might require your presence outside of standard office hours and during weekends, due to audits. Limited traveling may be part of the job.

Do you live a Lean mindset and do you have a scope for innovation?


We like to work with demanding customers. We adapt and evolve, and that’s exactly what we’d like you to do. We need you to challenge the status quo and bring new ideas into the open, while being candid and up to speed. You’re passionate about the NOW; you know time is precious and cannot be wasted. Easily breaking down ideas to their simplest elements and eliminating processes which do not add value are skills that make you uniquely syncreon.

You can turn nothing into something and are aware it takes guts and hard work to get somewhere. That’s why we’d like you to think like our customers and make reasonable decisions.
