Cats are undeniably champions of the Internet. They're cute, hilarious, and can be jerks, so honestly what's not to love? But, while they've been getting the recognition they deserve online, they've been left by the wayside in the pet food industry, with legacy FMCG companies opting to offer variations of dog food for them rather than providing food formulated for their dietary needs – did you know they're obligate carnivores, so a high meat diet is a biological necessity?
Why You’ll Love Working With Us
If you want to join and grow an ambitious, mission-driven, high-growth startup that’s making a genuine difference to cat’s and their people’s lives, you’ll love working at KatKin.
With a growing audience of cat people, an expanding Fresh meals recipe book, and the science to back it all up, you get the sense that KatKin is a mere whisker away from becoming a household name for helping cat people do the best for their cats.
As our Procurement Manager for our pantry items and packaging, you will be playing a crucial role by owning the pantry items and packaging supply chain and ensuring specifications are at the required and ordered levels. You’ll be key in establishing a secure supply chain by developing and executing supplier strategies. This will include negotiating supplier contracts, measuring supplier performance, ensuring supplier due diligence and engagement in risk management, so good stakeholder management skills are key. You will be based in our factory site a few days a week, and outside of that we anticipate travel around the UK to meet with suppliers.
