Job Description for Materials Coordinator

The process begins with the materials coordinator working with senior management to develop an acceptable set of procedures to track materials throughout the material's life with the company. Proper forms and records must be filed upon materials' receipt to ensure vendors are providing all of the ordered materials and to deal with any potential discrepancies. Next, storage must be handled in an effective and efficient manner. The materials coordinator must ensure that the materials are stored in a safe and stable fashion.
