Production Planner

Are you passionate about planning how we can best meet our customer demand? Then we may have the role for you!

What’s it all about?

Our Production Planners ensure we have the right stock, in the right place, and at the right time - and in doing so, you will be able to develop a fantastic knowledge of the business, understanding how we all work together to delight our customers with our products.

Making decisions under pressure is imperative to the role and so you need to feel confident in making choices that will suit the needs of the customer - and then communicating those decisions accurately, across all key stakeholders.

You will be a great team player, wanting to get stuck in to get things moving whilst being able to stand back and look at the bigger picture. In addition, you will have a strong analytical mind, with the ability to look at data and tell the story behind it.

Experience for the role is not essential, but you will need to be able to make decisions in adversity, and be comfortable using multiple systems. Does this sound like your next move?
