Unified is currently seeking an intern for the Procurement team. The intern will gain hands on experience in the analysis of procurement and sales including hands on analysis of vendor performance, service level agreements, inventory shortages and promotional sales. The intern will also have the opportunity to support two large projects related to sales and procurement.

It will also involve working with retailers to improve item selections and working with procurement and marketing to brand the program and present recommendations to retailers. The Vendor Service Level Analysis project will involve identifying vendors with the largest service level failures, analyzing the Microstrategy Purchase Order detail, “TRK” data to determine top volume/gross margin vendors, and analyze late deliveries and shortages against service level data. The intern will also have the opportunity to analyze the root cause for service failures, present data and work with management to develop and implement an action plan for improvement.
In addition to offering exposure to our procurement department the position will also allow for business exposure activities.
