In this roll, you will be working cross-functionally with other divisions (e.g. sales, marketing, production, …) in order to create reliable and accurate demand forecasts. These will play a pivotal role in the global S&OP process.

Job description

  • After starting in this challenging role, you will first be focusing on working your way into the master data. This way, you will be getting to know the very wide product range.
  • By creating, maintaining, updating and correcting the data, you will be able to better review the forecast at hand. As the horizon for the forecast is 12 to 18 months rolling, it will be of the utmost importance that you develop a strong sense of the heartbeat of the forecast in order to monitor its accuracy.
  • You will further evolve into your role by analyzing the product profiles and making sure that product categories stay updated.
  • Afterwards you will need to grow into your role. This means that you really evolve into an E2E cycle, making sure that you can analyze business opportunities and their possible effects on forecasts.
  • As a demand planner, you will be an interface with other internal stakeholders, effectively being a key player in the preparation of NPD-meetings and the whole S&OP process.


  • Our partner is looking for a candidate with a master’s degree in a business-oriented program.
  • A first working experience in an analytical planning environment is desirable, yet not obligatory.
  • English is the company’s language so full professional proficiency is asked.
  • The perfect candidate has the potential to grow and to learn on a day-to-day basis. You have a long-term view and wish to contribute in a meaningful way to the growth of the company.
  • You combine an analytical mindset with a strong set of communication skills.
  • Next to that, you are strongly process driven and know how to connect the dots in the bigger picture.
  • A strong knowledge of Excel is an absolute must, working experience in SAP would be considered a plus.


  • In this role, you will be giving the opportunity to fully develop your supply chain skills in an international and multicultural environment.
  • You will be guided through your first six months so that you’ll know a perfect start to your career at our client’s.
  • Although our client is an international, globally oriented company, communication lines are kept short. The doors of the management are always open for you.
  • As a nice bonus, you will be joining a very strong team with a lot of different views and open people. Every day food is being served at a different food truck next to the office, an absolute treat!
  • Lastly, next to an interesting salary package with extra advantages, you will be getting the chance to work from home one day a week after six months, a great advantage in these busy times!
