Supply Chain Analyst

Join Reid as our new Supply Chain Analyst

Reid Bikes own and operate their own brand of bikes which are currently distributed in over 20 countries around the world. We also design and manufacture bikes for several other brands, retail groups and distributors. Our own internal pillars are service, quality and price, and we aim to excel at all three. Our brand belief is that ‘freedom is key’.

Reid Bikes Limited are looking for a highly experienced, professional and knowledgeable Supply Chain Analyst to join their team at the brand’s international head office in Poole. Reid Bikes design, manufacture and distribute bikes, eBikes, scooters, eScooters, and water sports leisure products to over 30 countries around the world from our established factories and supply chain in China. We do this under our own Reid brand as well as designing and manufacturing for other brands. We have a strong and passionate team that has helped the business grow over 300% in the last 12 months and need another strong team player to help us to continue our journey.  Due to Covid-19 the supply chain is less stable, and lead times are longer. When coupled with a tripling of units on order, we are resourcing this area of our business to ensure that we meet our client’s service expectations. The successful candidate will be working alongside our Supply Chain Manager and one other Supply Chain Analyst, with a shared Office Assistant resource. We also have a team of three staff at our China office who are managed by the UK team.
