Job Description for Inventory Control Clerk
Inventory control clerks manage and coordinate inventory control operations within a business. Their primary responsibility is to ensure that the company’s inventory is both accurate and up to date. They coordinate among various groups to gather inventory information; for example, they work with vendors to get current shipping records, details on expected incoming inventory, and verification of prior shipments. Inventory control clerks also work with customer service professionals and other inventory personnel to give and receive updates on inventory-related issues. Inventory control clerks serve as the primary hub for inventory information and are expected to efficiently gather and distribute information in line with their company’s specific inventory management system or policies. Once accurate inventory has been taken, inventory control clerks address any overages or shortages by recommending modifications to future orders. They also communicate with warehouse personnel to prepare items for display in the store or designate locations for warehouse storage.
