We're tails.com, a dog food subscription company with a big difference. We create truly tailored food for each and every dog we serve. We start by asking people a few simple questions about their dog. Then we use that information to create their dog's unique tails.com recipe – so their dog gets exactly the nutrition they need, in the taste they love, delivered to their door every month. It's clever stuff.
Now delivering over 4 million custom-designed meals every month across the UK, we’re looking for a Planning Coordinator to join our Supply Chain team. Join, and you’ll be right at the heart of a business that’s changing the world of pet food.
Together, we'll change the world of pet food for good.
People. Process. Planning.
That's what supply and procurement at tails.com is all about. People first – because it takes good people to build the kind of long-term, trusted partnerships with suppliers that we do, and it takes great people to create and deliver an exceptional product.
Process, because we can only do what we do by being able to see how the whole system – physical product, digital product, and personal service – fits together. Then we make these complex processes as simple and streamlined as possible. So our team are pattern-spotters, insight-hunters, and change-makers; people ready to be flexible, adaptable, and help us improve in everything we do.
And planning, because we're here to see as much of the future as we can - to make sure we have enough food for the dogs we serve. We've been data-driven from day one, finding new and better ways to draw the insights that help us plan for next week, next year, or five years from now.
