S&OP, system development and implementations, long term capacity modelling, team leadership, visibility on long term business strategy …

A Birmingham based manufacturer are looking for a Planning Manager to focus on the above. It's a role that will help the business move away from short term planning towards a more developed and streamlined process.

The business manufacture a portfolio of products with high levels of variability and BOM complexity.

It’s a role that nicely balances strategic development with operational planning. You’ll be accountable for planning via your team, and long term capacity modelling looking at 5-year forecasts.
