Planning Manager

Planning Manager jobs

No matter what industry a company is based in, careful planning is essential for success. This is certainly true when it comes to the supply chain - after all, if the necessary materials and components don't arrive on time, or if the finished products aren't sent out according to schedule, profits and customer satisfaction could both drop.

Therefore, the role of a planning manager is an extremely important part of the business. This person is responsible for devising and implementing strategies to ensure procurement, production, logistics and delivery run smoothly and effectively.

Depending on the role, it's likely that a planning manager will liaise with other departments, such as the sales and marketing teams in order to predict demand.

Other tasks will include recognising the potential for out of stock issues, pinpoint slow moving products so that the necessary action can be taken to shift them and ensuring the integrity and accuracy of inventories.

The skills required

If you're looking to take on the role of a planning manager, you should have a proven track record in using the techniques and systems commonly found in supply chains, such as the computer technology and various management methods.

In addition, communication skills are a must, as you'll be reporting to stakeholders and clients, as well as explaining your requirements to members of staff.

An appreciation for excellent customer service and a keen commercial awareness are also beneficial and you should be confident in your problem solving and decision making skills.
