There are two important responsibilities in this position. The first one is the forecasting part. This is why you will find your seat at the table of your product group, not with other demand planners.

What is important in this position? Swift communication, knowing your market and being able to communicate why you made certain choices. And the result? Solid calculations and managing expectations into specific commercial plan.
This does not mean that you never speak with other demand planners. Au contraire! Every month the manager organizes a meeting with all the demand planners. In this meeting you will discuss changes and developments in the market and what this could mean for demand planning in your company.
The other responsibility? Improving current processes. You are smart, new, fresh and highly educated; you know what this multinational can do better! And you dont only know how to improve these processes, you are also very convincing when you present these ideas to your manager.
Do you want some feedback? Every Monday your team has a 30 minute block to discuss improvements, new ideas and how to do this. Do you need some training to get things done? Every Thursday your team has a one hour block for in-house training. Do you want this to be about your idea? Sure, why not?
