Forecasting Manager

Forecasting manager jobs

Whether a business operates in retail, manufacturing, construction, education, defence or the food and beverage industry - or another sector entirely - careful planning and accurate predictions of market trends can be extremely beneficial to company profits and overall success.

That’s why the role of a forecasting manager is so important. Their expertise can help ensure supply meets demand so orders can be fulfilled within set timeframes and budgets. The forecasting manager can also assist in optimising operations, reducing waste and minimising risk.

Of course, the role of a forecasting manager will vary from company to company, but responsibilities will generally involve liaising with clients, sales and marketing teams, as well as keeping up with market trends and seasonal changes.

The skills required

As a forecasting manager, you should have excellent numeracy and analytical skills. An ability to communicate effectively and build relationships with clients and colleagues is also essential.

Successful candidates also need to demonstrate an ability to make decisions that benefit the company and improve customer satisfaction.

Computer skills are essential, particularly with spreadsheet and database software. A good working knowledge of other industry-specific systems will also be beneficial.
