Do you get a buzz out of making things happen?

Do your organisational skills rival those of Monica from Friends?

If so, we might have the right job opportunity for you!

Distinct Recruitment are working with a Peterborough based FMCG supplier to support the recruitment of a Planner.

The business operates in the retail supply sector, and works with suppliers of leading brands to deliver products to major retail customers that are loved by people across the UK. They’re a major player in their industry, contributing for around 40% of a £1.4bn industry, so as a planner you’ll effectively be delivering enjoyment to thousands of people!

You’ll be working within a lively and social team of 20, with a diverse set of personalities and characters, and an even gender balance.

As a Planner, you’ll be the intermediary between the customer and suppliers, ensuring the business is fulfilling customer supply to optimum levels. Amongst other things, this will include allocating stock to the customer, working with the suppliers to communicate customer forecasts, reporting on product performance, and re-circulating stock within the supply chain to ensure maximum sell through rates.

So who are you?

In short, you are super organised, have a passion for supply chain, have experience of analysing data, and want to work in a vibrant team. Relationship building will be natural to you, and you’ll thrive in customer and supplier facing situations.

Your skills can be from a Supply Chain, Inventory, Merchandising, Demand, or Forecasting Planning background.
