Why to join our team of Demand Planners at IKEA of Sweden?
You will be part of our demand planning team at the leading home furnishing retailer in the world. Here you will have the opportunity to be part of our Supply Chain journey and develop yourself as well as our business.

Job Description

As a Demand Planner you will be responsible of predicting the customers buying behaviour and demand for IKEA products on a global level. You will get a chance to utilize your analytical and communicative skills to improve our forecast from the start of a product development all the way to the customer. By joining IKEA of Sweden you will understand and learn how home furnishing products are developed to meet our customers and create a better everyday life for the many people. You will get deep knowledge about our development process and our strategy, and create a solid base of IKEA knowledge that will benefit you throughout your IKEA career. On top of that, you will be part of a diverse and inclusive team, where each co-worker is valued and respected. You will belong to an organisation with a value driven culture where Simplicity, Cost-consciousness and Different with a meaning are key components in creating the IKEA spirit.

And what do we offer you in this assignment?
You will act as the link between Sales and Supply, turning in depth analysis of our sales history into an accurate forecast that is used to secure the availability of our products to our customers around the globe. In addition, being the Supply Organisation’s speaking partner with the Retail organisation, you will turn global and national sales plans into product level forecasts by predicting when, where and in what quantities the products will be sold in the Customer Meeting Points. You will contribute in building a smarter, slimmer and more cost-effective supply chain, enabling availability at the lowest possible cost!


To succeed & shine in this role:
As a Demand Planner you are working in a complex and changing world. The successful candidate has a flare for explaining complex relationships in an easy and straightforward way. Since forecasting is a numbers game you will also need a strong analytical side. You are a true team player that thrives in an environment where it is important to build strong relationships with stakeholders within the organisation. We also see that you:

  • have solid experience from supply chain, ideally from the retail environment on a global level
  • are proactive in taking the lead in motivating and inspiring others
  • have the ability to work with a holistic perspective, through the whole chain from supplier to customer, as well as the capability to be in the fine details
  • are open-minded and flexible in ad-hoc situations

At IKEA of Sweden everyone is a talent and we are always looking for good people with a can-do attitude that wants to develop!
