  • Key responsibilities as a Planning and Forecasting Analyst:

  • Proactively correcting any forecast errors and planning parameters, working closely with the purchasing and procurement teams
  • Analysing and cleansing data and creating reports to identify demand exceptions and inaccuracies
  • Monitoring and managing inventory levels and producing inventory plans for sign off
The skills and experience we're looking for:
  • Strong numerical and analytical skills
  • Database experience including MS Excel or Access
  • SQL experience would be very beneficial, but the company are willing to train for the right candidate
  • Experience of Data Analysis in a working environment
  • Great IT skills - some basic coding skills would be a bonus
  • Someone who works methodically with a structured approach to work, with excellent attention to detail
You'll be working standard office hours, and you'll be joining a solid, friendly and hard-working team.
