If you could take the reins of a Demand Planning function that needs development, what would your plan be?


A Derbyshire based FMCG business is looking for your help to develop their Demand Planning function. In return? You get free rein on how it operates.


There’s opportunity to streamline, develop, and refine how they approach demand planning.


They’re currently feeling some pain caused by a number of issues that demand planning can help rectify, from slow moving and obsolete stock, through to capacity constraints in both manufacturing and warehouse areas.


You’ll be developing an aggregate demand plan for UK and international markets across multi-channel sales streams. Working with a product range that has a regular refresh and can be promotionally heavy depending on markets, to say demand planning is crucial to the business success is an understatement.


Currently, it’s a manual process done through a network of spreadsheets. Your small team of demand planners will be putting together rolling 16-week demand plans, and you’ll be the lead in demand planning for exec review and within the S&OP cycle.


Whilst you won’t be putting together the granular detail, you’ll need to be able to dive in to SKU level info when your demand plan is being challenged.


Things are primed for you to come in and deliver change. The senior leadership team are open to new ideas on how to best manage demand.


If you’re looking to move in to a business where demand planning is raw, and you want to make some great strides in developing your own function, this is a great opportunity.


If you have experience in demand planning / forecasting within FMCG or multi-channel high-volume sectors, and are ready to really own the function, we’d love to hear from you.
