  • Development of relationships and collaborative
    planning processes with sales teams
    and external customers to support the forecasting process
  • Successfully engaging cross functional input,
    to ensure high levels of planning accuracy, business delivery and customer
  • Playing a pivotal role within the monthly
    business process through planning
    ‘roadshows’ in conjunction with the sales team and ensuring weekly and
    monthly alignment of forecasts and highlighting gaps to target

Who are we looking for?

As the successful
candidate, you will be of graduate calibre (or equivalent), have strong
operational experience with experience in Supply Chain within the FMCG sector.

  • You will have the
    ability to plan and meet
    deadlines and be able to achieve results and make an impact whilst building
    strong relationships with key stakeholders.
  • Other
    competencies requited are:
  • Attention
    to detail
  • Analytical
  • IT
    Literate with strong learning agility to adopt new tools and processes
  • Continuous
    Improvement mind set and Influencing skills
  • In
    return, the Supply Chain team will offer you all the support and guidance
    necessary to succeed. This is a great opportunity to work within a talented and
    dedicated team.

The closing date for this role is 23rd February 2018. We will
be considering candidates as they apply, so please don’t delay in submitting
your application.
