What we are looking for:

* Previous experience working in a forecasting / demand planning role

* Supply Chain degree is beneficial but not essential

* Strong excel skills (you must be comfortable with pivot tables, V-Lookups etc)

* The right attitude is key! I am looking for someone who can drive change, and naturally seeks ways to improve ways of working
