Are you an experienced Demand and Supply Planner with a background in FMCG B2C operations?


Does your previous employment include working for blue-chip multinational companies?


Would you like the opportunity to lead the demand process for the UK in our client's B2C and B2B channels?


If your answer is yes to all, bring your resource planning skills to this Demand & Supply Planner role for our client in the South East.


As the Demand and Supply Planner, you'll report to the Demand Manager, based in the EU and a dotted to line to the Supply Chain Manager FMCG UK and the Logistics Director EU.


The overview of this role involves reviewing forecast mix and volume and creating collaborations between sales, marketing, and supply chain organisations, as well as coordinating demand with our client's factory teams in both the UK and Europe.

Our client sells through 3rd party online sellers to wholesalers, retail outlets, and private individuals, so you can imagine the complexity of the product demand and supply operation.


On the demand side, you'll be responsible for using SAP IBP demand to shape SKU requirements strategically. This involves meticulously crafting an initial forecast based on statistical models coupled with cleansed historical data. Plus, you'll have to be mindful of commercial area insights, market plans, promotion details and customer trends.


As for the supply side, you'll manage the factory's visibility into everything from inventory levels to emerging bottlenecks. You'll also coordinate transitions between operations and sales teams and minimise freshness risks. On top of that, you will provide real-time updates on operational disruptions or shortages, so everyone is informed when it matters most.

We need someone with at least a degree in either Business Administration or Engineering, as well as previous experience working within this field and knowledge of SAP systems such as APO or IBP (which will give you an extra edge).


Our client is headquartered in London and operates a hybrid working system to give you some flexibility.
