Global planner Aarhus

Do you have a mind for numbers and a strong focus on optimal utilisation of capacity and resources? If yes, join Global Planning in a job where you will help contribute to our new Milk & Yoghurt central planning function that balances our supply, demand and capacities globally. You will have great opportunities to deliver results that have significant positive effect on the business and influence the work of many of your colleagues.

Your role is crucial to the success of our sites
You will be the coordinating link between our sales and production units, and your major objective will be to follow up on plans for both areas. You will be responsible for the Master Production Planning balancing available milk and capacity with the demand. As such, you will play a decisive role ensuring that we apply available raw milk and capacities optimally. You will:

  • Prepare material and analysis for the monthly Sales & Operation Planning process
  • Establish and maintain planning principles and master data in SAP/APO
  • Lead planning meetings at sites and other relevant meetings with stakeholders
  • Optimize and move production across sites in different countries to fulfill all demand

You will have close collaboration with leaders and employees at all levels and gain a unique insight into Arla Foods’ business across units and functions. Furthermore, this job will give you the opportunity to develop your skills personally and professionally.

Proactive logistician with strong analytical and communication skills
You hold a master degree either within Economics or Supply Chain Management, and have preferably been working with planning and logistics for a few years. You are an advanced IT-user with good understanding of the supply chain activities and you have experience developing and enhancing processes and tools. You will have a super user role within SAP and APO, so relevant insight will give you a head start. As you will depend on a variety of stakeholders you will need to master executing through others in a matrix organisation.

In your approach, you are positive, goal-oriented and thrive on working autonomously. You are able to retain a customer and service-oriented approach and possess excellent stakeholder management skills. You are proactive, able to remain calm under pressure, and you use your analytical skills when solving problems. Additionally, you are outgoing and a skilful communicator with good written and verbal English skills and if you speak German it will be considered an advantage.

We process applications as we receive them so please apply as soon as possible. For additional information, please call Senior Planning Manager Poul Dalgaard Johansen on + 45 9131 1482.
