As a Franchise Supply Chain Director, you will lead and deliver the franchise strategy for Respiratory medicines. This role supports the consolidation of strategic Supply Chain activities and provides leadership in governance forums facing Pharma Supply Chain, R&D and Commercial.

You will ensure the franchise and medicine supply chain teams have a clear set of operational targets and will be responsible for establishing Therapy Area Supply Chain strategy for a group of assets. You will support the Franchise Supply Chain head in delivering Future ready ambition with a focus on key objectives of delivering strategic programmes, supporting commercial growth for new and established products, and defining and implementing a clear end to end lifecycle and network strategy.

This is a key enterprise role with significant responsibility for the definition and execution of supply chain strategy, for one of GSK's most critical therapy areas. The importance of the programmes you lead offers the successful candidate visibility across the Supply Chain, and cross-functionally with the commercial and R&D business units.

Key Responsibilities include, but are not limited to:

  • Heading NPI Launches, driving launch excellence in the respiratory therapy area, looking for synergies between supply chain nodes, various projects and functional teams to deliver the plan
  • Developing End-to-End Supply Chain Vision & Design for specific products in the Franchise

  • Matrix management of a large team of supply chain specialists, offering mentoring coaching and development, as well as project and program management

About You:

This role is an extremely visible position with responsibility for managing a considerable number of stakeholders, right up to CET level. As such fluent and clear communication, the ability to influence and to manage expectations, and the ability to form, maintain and strengthen relationships are essential. You will combine these with the confidence to make decisions under pressure, sometimes with limited information, and with strong analytical and problem-solving skills - multitasking to deliver multiple solutions simultaneously. Despite having no current direct reports, this role calls for a truly effective leader. We need someone who can lead in a complex matrix environment, across multiple teams and geographies. You will need to coach, motivate and develop people, all while recognising and sensitively managing cultural diversity.
