Colleague Willianne van Horssen
Role: Supply Chain planner
Can you tell us a little about your daily tasks?
I’m primarily responsible for safe-guarding our commercial schedule. I make sure my colleagues in the warehouse and at the boutiques have enough time to process all of the items, before launching a new collection. Besides that, I also check our sales daily to make sure new products and extra orders are in stock at the right time. To do this, I make agreements with our suppliers about how and when they’re able to deliver certain orders. I also support our buyers with various logistical tasks and act as the link between HQ and our warehouse for incoming goods.
What’s the most interesting aspect of working for the Supply Chain team at My Jewellery?
I most enjoy supporting large logistical projects like collaborations with big brands, and our yearly Advent calendar. It’s really fun to work on something as a team, everyone working within their own specialty, and making it into a big success together!
What are you most proud of?
I’m most proud of the growth we’ve experienced recently. Three years ago I was the only member of the Supply Chain team and now there’s four of us. At first we’d make all our decisions based on gut feeling and experience, now we have data and dashboards that keep track of everything we do and guide our decision making process. We also used to make lists to keep track of our admin, and now most of those tasks are registered in our system.
What do you love most about working for the Supply Chain team?
We’re a relatively small team which means we can learn a lot from each other and really make a difference together. Because we’re the link within the company we work with many different teams and projects, which means no two days are the same!
