Trade Counter Demand Planner – Stafford

500 new stores in just twelve years, 1000 new people in one and we’re about to open our fourth Distribution Centre, which is where this job comes in. We’ve doubled in size in the last five years and we have plans to grow even further. We book enough pallets into our DC’s in just 3 months that if we stacked them they’d reach the Stratosphere. And, if you do your job right, our customers will never be more than half an hour away from the exact tool they need to do their job right.

The Trade Counter Demand Planner role

Our business needs the right stock, in the right place, at the right time and it is your job to make that happen! Each location has a capacity and it is vital that this is not exceeded. You decide which products are allocated to which stores, based on previous sales and business intelligence. Relationships must be built and maintained with internal teams and external suppliers to reach the final goal, ensuring that our customers are being provided with a top notch service.  

The skills you need as a Trade Counter Demand Planner

A problem solver who just makes things happen! Your strong communication skills mean building relationships is second nature. You love working with Excel and predicting what needs to happen next. If you’ve worked in supply chain, inventory or logistics before that would be great, but what we’re really looking at here is your motivation, drive and ability to learn quickly.

A full valid UK Drivers licence would be required for travel between Stafford DC and Lichfield DC.
