Inventory control managers oversee inventory levels to ensure that they are neither too high nor too low. They are also responsible for replenishing spent inventory, arranging for the return or disposal, and preventing shrinkage as necessary. Inventory control managers are often found in fields such as retail stores and distribution centers, food service, and manufacturing. Inventory control managers may also be employed by inventory management services, which are hired as contractors by businesses to conduct external audits on store or warehouse inventories; in this role, inventory control managers may coordinate inventory-taking teams.
