Working for Open Cosmos

Aim high, go beyond! At Open Cosmos we are solving the world’s biggest challenges from space, providing businesses, governments and researchers access to more readily available information than ever before - ready for the challenge? Then read on…

Working in the Supply Chain Team

The supply chain team is the backbone of our Operations. Initiating, expedediting and closing Procurement of various subsystems and services, moving satellites and equipment across the world, managing the supply of key components and materials and expanding our technology and services capabilities by partnering with world-class partners and suppliers to deliver ongoing projects and future ones which will help deliver our customer missions.

What will you be doing?

You’ll be the first point of contact for any shipment that comes in and goes out of Open Cosmos, and the person making sure our office runs productively, safely and smoothly.

Your tasks will be diverse and no 2 days will be the same - from purchasing office supplies (including technical equipment as well as, of course, snacks) and components for the labs and cleanrooms to organising and managing the logistics and shipment of those between company sites and also supporting in sending our satellites to launch sites.

You will monitor the delivery of various supplies and ensure that products and services are on time and quality.

You will take the lead in maintaining inventory on an ERP system alongside supporting the preparation for external stakeholders visits and events, as well as internal team days and activities to keep our Open Cosmonauts motivated!

You will be interacting with internal stakeholders to support audits and stock takes every quarter of the year.

You will also be responsible for general office maintenance and improvement, coordinating and monitoring health and safety compliance, first aid and fire warden training.

This role is a great opportunity to grow in the key areas of supply chain/office management in a very exciting and growing sector which is the small-satellite world.

What you need to be successful

  • Communication - You'll be communicating with both internal and external stakeholders a lot of the time, so having great communication is a must!
  • Attention to Detail - From completing procurements to shipping high value satellites globally, you will need to show diligence in all areas and hence having great attention to detail is a must.
  • Fast paced - As you will be responsible for purchasing products and services with a fast turn around, you’ll know how to keep cool under these circumstances while still delivering to a high standard.
  • A proactive self-starter - There’s an immense need for being proactive and juggling different tasks, so having the right attitude to work is really important.
  • Independence - At times, we’ll need you to take initiative and work independently. Of course, we’ll always be around to support you but we encourage you to be a driving force within your team!
  • Analytical - You’ll be an analytical thinker who’s able to communicate metrics, including costs and delivery timelines effectively.
  • Health & Safety - You'll have strong applied knowledge of health & safety ensuring we stay compliant. NEBOSH certifications would be a big advantage but not essential!
  • Tech Savvy - You’ll need to be comfortable working in Word, Excel and PowerPoint - even better if you’re familiar with G-Suite.
