Supply chains are all around us and fundamental to how we live. The food we eat, clothes we wear, buildings we inhabit, transport and equipment we use each and every day are all examples of how we use and benefit from multiple supply chains. New technologies, automation, big data and sophisticated analytics are rapidly changing how supply chains operate and quickly evolving the job roles and skills needed by individual workers. Supply chain roles and responsibilities now encompass a wide range of occupations such as demand planning, design analyst, inventory control, customer service and fulfilment, logistics and freight, production planning, sourcing and purchasing, supplier management, IT and finance to name but a few. Supply chain career paths are changing with plenty of new and exciting opportunities available! The development of digital systems and applications throughout the domestic and international supply chain ecosystem will see many more diverse and different supply chain careers becoming available.
