Demand Planner jobs
In any industry, ensuring supply meets demand is essential for business success.
The role of a demand planner is to analyse market trends, buying statistics and other indicators and create strategies to make sure that all orders are fulfilled on time and that waste is minimised.
For example, seasonal changes and special occasions could lead to an increase in business - and therefore an increase in demand. Meanwhile, if the company has started a new advertising campaign or is somehow enhancing its offering, production levels may also need to be increased.
This is why demand planners will usually consult a variety of statistics and trend forecasts, as well liaise with other departments internally, such as the sales and marketing teams, account managers and those in logistics and procurement positions.
The skills required
Demand planner roles will vary from company to company, but in general, candidates for this type of job should have an ability to think analytically, while good commercial awareness and a drive to make improvements to the existing sales and operating planning process (S&OP) are also essential.
Excellent numeracy and communication skills are a must. It’s likely that you will need to report your findings to directors and stakeholders, so you should also be comfortable making presentations.
In addition, you should be computer literate and comfortable using spreadsheets and database programs, as well as the Microsoft Office suite.
