Objectives and Key Deliverables

We are a charity in the UK which helps disabled and disadvantaged people into employment and independent living.

We are looking for a consultant to complete a 3 month retail logistics optimisation project. (There is potential for this project to extend beyond 3 months).

The project includes:

1. Reviewing and advising on the best use of existing assets (50 stores, fleet of 5 vans, eBay and 1 e-commerce site, 1 central warehouse)

2. Defining a plan for resourcing our logistics requirements to support retail operations:
- distribution centre - currently pilot
- managing transfer between stores and from central warehouse
- sourcing/recommending the best courier partner to support our new e-commerce
- managing inventory/transfer/storage/dispatch of new and donated goods

The ideal consultant will have experience in a not-for-profit/charity organisation, in logistics/supply-chain/operations. For example, Oxfam, Barnado's, The British Red Cross, Cancer Research, AGE UK and British Heart Foundation.

An understanding of a truly omni-channel logistics model, where fulfilment capacity and stock availability can be flexibly deployed into any channel is required, as we are going to be launching an e-commerce site in addition to brick and mortar stores.

Our head office is in Bristol, but we have sites located across the UK.
