Demand Planner - Nottinghamshire

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.

Demand Planner Jobs in Nottinghamshire

A county located in the East Midlands, Nottinghamshire shares borders with South Yorkshire, Lincolnshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire.

Those seeking Demand Planner roles in the region will have plenty of options to consider, particularly in the larger settlements like Mansfield, Newark-on-Trent and Worksop.

Nottingham, the traditional county town, is the biggest settlement in the area, with the largest population. It also usually ranks within the top 10 highest GDPs per capita in the country. However, the county council is based in West Bridgford.

For much of its past, the region thrived on agriculture and textiles. Nottinghamshire is probably best known for its famous fictional resident, Robin Hood. Indeed, the legend of the man who robbed from the rich to feed the poor is the major reason for the region's high rate of tourism. Meanwhile, the local economy also relies on the service sector and retail.

What's more, a number of large companies have headquarters or major facilities in the region. Boots the Chemist was founded in Nottingham in 1849 and its head office is still there. Others include E.ON UK, Gala Group, Siemens, Speedo, Games Workshop, Experian, Reuters and Capital One.
