  • Reconcile Monthly Demand Valuation to Financial forecast, highlight deviations and build walks
  • Measure and report forecast accuracy at business-defined intervals
  • Manage Vanguard (TTI selected DRP system) base forecasting through evaluation of trends development/gaps, seasonality and adjust forecasts according to future sales expectations

  • 1 -2 years’ experience in demand planning, working with demand planning integrated applications as a key user. Experience with supply planning and finance knowledge is a plus.
  • Experience from a sales organization, e.g., from FMCG or retail, is an advantage because of the high number of SKU’s and the need for demand planning and forecasting.
