CARRIERE DA BELLROY
Sales Forecasting & Operations Planning Manager

IN A NUTSHELL

We’re entering a new phase of growth and focused on remodeling, adapting and optimizing our supply chain to leverage emerging growth trends in a post-COVID e-commerce landscape. We have a well-established Supply Chain that has been built over the last 12 years, selling ~1,000 SKUs to over 120 countries from 20 inventory locations across 4 major sales channels (with 9 distinct channels nestled within). Previous Supply Chain experience is not necessary. We have in-house experts who have helped us build this (your manager included) and we’re now searching for an Analytical Manager to bring a fresh perspective and lead our Demand and Supply Planning business unit to develop our approach during this time of rapid growth.

As our Sales Forecasting & Operations Planning Manager, you’ll be leading a team who thinks carefully about possibilities, and is used to building models and using them to improve processes. We need you to work with our data and develop systems that enhance our forecast accuracy and inventory health. With 9 distinct sales channels, you’ll be responsible for making sure the channel inventory requirements are represented in our demand and supply plans. By leading your team to further develop and refine our processes, systems, and KPIs (the ones that make sense and help maximize everyone’s success), you’ll ensure our products get from our factories to our global distributors and customers more efficiently and cost-effectively.

You might currently be in an analytical or consulting role. Either way, you’re comfortable with large data sets and keen to be closer to the operations of the businesses to develop a deeper understanding of how the business and business systems work. You will be supported by an existing demand & supply planning team, tech team, and data team - each of them is expert in their domain and keen to share their knowledge.


YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF YOU HAVE:

  • A couple years of people management experience. This is essential, as is the ability to influence others through the quality of your ideas, rather than your place on the org chart
  • Technical competency with ERP and BI tools (you're comfortable with data, know how to analyze it and use it to build models)
  • The desire to get your hands a bit dirty, you want to be involved in the implementation of the system so you can understand what is working and what you can do better next time
  • A first-principles approach and understand that just because things have been done in a certain way doesn’t mean they should be
  • The willingness to engage in a challenging, intellectually honest environment and contribute to it
  • Pragmatism, you understand perfection can be the enemy but also recognize the opportunity to create scalable solutions that last
  • Excellent communication and continuous improvement skills and an ability to collaborate with people of varying levels and disciplines

IF YOU WERE HERE LAST WEEK, HERE ARE SOME OF THE THINGS YOU MIGHT HAVE DONE:

  • Reviewed our inventory KPIs and investigated the cause of the increasing stockouts in the Amazon US warehouse; then noticed the KPI was misaligned with our business goals and updated it
  • Navigated large volumes of data and calculated the projected impact of Covid-related increases in shipping lead times before leading a strategic discussion with our Chief Business Officer
  • Noticed an improvement opportunity for one of our algorithms and collaborated with our Demand Planner to implement it
  • Helped our Supply Planner to decide the best way to allocate constrained inventory
  • Investigated and implemented a newly released feature on our planning software, StockIQ
  • Commenced a cost-benefit analysis of adding an APAC inventory hub to our distribution network
  • Checked in on the day’s priorities in a daily standup meeting with your team
  • Led the weekly Demand Planning meeting, focussing this week on the forecast performance of a recently released product
  • Met with our Digital Sales Manager to discuss an upcoming campaign to ensure we have enough inventory to meet the projected demand
  • Discussed the Theory of Constraints methodology with our Chief Business Officer and applied it to a piece of work

Sales Forecasting & Operations Planning Manager

LA NOSTRA MISSIONE

Creare modi migliori per portare con sé gli oggetti.
Usare il business a scopo di bene.
Aiutare il mondo e il nostro team a progredire.

I nostri spazi

Bellroy è una fusione delle nostre due case - Bells Beach e Fitzroy. Bells Beach contribuisce con la sua atmosfera rilassata della vita all'aperto, per bilanciare lo stile urbano e creativo di Fitzroy. La città e il mare; ispirazione e avventura. Insieme creano un equilibrio perfetto.

Bells Beach

La nostra sede principale sulla spiaggia si trova dietro gigantesche scogliere di arenaria, che si affacciano su una delle coste australiane più famose per il surf. È qui che i nostri Product Designer fanno le prove nel Maker Lab e il nostro team di vendita consuma quantità impressionanti di caffè e traffico internet su Skype. Qui siamo più tranquilli rispetto ai nostri vicini a Fitzroy e ci piace la concentrazione che si viene a creare. Se hai bisogno di un boccone c'è un bar proprio qui accanto e alle 11:00 controlliamo sempre se ci sono le condizioni per fare surf, l'occasione perfetta per rinfrescare la mente con un po' di aria salina.

Fitzroy

I nostri locali di Fitzroy sono immersi nel cuore del centro creativo di Melbourne. È qui che i nostri team di creazione, di marketing, di ingegneria e di gestione operativa sviluppano campagne e si assicurano che ogni Bellroy venga spedito in modo sicuro in tutto il mondo. Appena fuori dalla porta troverai strade che scoppiano di energia (e il miglior negozio di ramen fuori da Tokyo). C'è anche una piscina olimpionica proprio dietro l'angolo, per chi ha bisogno di rinfrescarsi a mezzogiorno.

Da remoto

Al di fuori delle due nostre sedi principali, abbiamo una squadra che lavora a distanza - dall'Australia occidentale a parti dell'Asia, degli USA e dell'Europa. Essere globale è un caposaldo in Bellroy, ci tiene connessi e ci permette di vedere la vita da molte prospettive diverse. Se sei dotato di una connessione a Internet e della flessibilità di diventare parte di un team che non vedi tutti i giorni, potresti valutare di unirti alla nostra rete globale costantemente in crescita.
