No matter what sector a business operates in, keeping track of the supply chain is essential to ensure that customer expectations are met or exceeded.
The role of a demand manager is to keep track of market trends and buying patterns, taking steps to make sure systems are performing in a way that enables requests to be met - and adapting procedures as appropriate.
This means continually monitoring demand and analysing historic patterns, as well as working with other departments - such as the sales, marketing, manufacturing and logistics teams, depending on the nature of the business - to keep the company’s output at the right level.
If you are thinking of applying for a role as a demand manager, you should have well developed numeracy and analytical skills.
You will need to be an excellent communicator, able to report to and discuss future plans with directors, stakeholders and clients. Moreover, you must demonstrate good commercial and financial awareness.
Successful candidates will also need good working knowledge of the various computer programs, technologies and software is also essential.
As the head of a team, demand managers should be good leaders, able to delegate tasks and recognise when staff may need extra training, motivation or encouragement.
Finally, as the role can sometimes be stressful, you should be confident in your decision-making skills and able to thrive in a fast-paced working environment.

The Romans, who loved a good mineral spring, knew all about the source, and would bathe in it between wine sessions. Centuries later the same spring would go on to make Leamington Spa’s fortune in the spa boom that gripped Britain in the nineteenth century. So popular was the town with Queen Victoria that she granted the town “Royal” status in 1838 (in fact it was called Leamington Priors until then, not Leamington Spa).
The town is located 20 miles (32 km) south east of the centre of Birmingham, 8 miles (13 km) south of Coventry and 27 miles (44 km) west of Northampton. As the popularity of spa towns declined towards the end of the nineteenth century, the town became a more typical industrial settlement, especially when the canals and railways came, although it kept some of its exclusive kudos and was a popular place for people from the cities to retire to or take a break. This led to it becoming a shopping town, and that aspect remains to this day. Engineering works, especially foundries, were common in the town, and that still goes on to some extent.
With an economically active population, good road and rail links, a fair amount of engineering work and some hi-tech industries in its business parks, Royal Leamington Spa is a deceptively promising place to find Demand Manager work. As a commuter town for Coventry, Birmingham and Leicester, it also opens up fantastic opportunities for anyone willing to travel.
