Planning Manager - Nottinghamshire

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.

Planning Manager Jobs in Nottinghamshire

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

Those seeking Planning Manager 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.
