Job description


Sales Planning Support

One Group. Six brands. Unlimited possibilities.

We've noticed that ŠKODA cars are driven by a particular type of person. It's nothing to do with age, income or any other social demographic, but attitude. They love driving something different because they're driven by something different. Just like us.

Great products, potential for a global career, limitless opportunities – you'll find it here at Volkswagen Group UK. What really sets us apart is how we work – not how many vehicles we sell. Volkswagen Group UK has a unique culture, built on diversity, difference and a friendly rivalry that inspires us all. Across our brands and group functions, we learn from each other, encourage each other and regularly challenge each other to think differently. Our people have a true passion for what they do, a genuine desire to go further for customers and to give their own careers real momentum at the same time.

We have an exciting opportunity for you to join our Planning and Supply department as a Sales Planning Support Manager on a permanent basis. The role reports into the Sales Planning Manager and is responsible for supporting the Planning and Supply team with insight and analysis to ensure the correct model volume and channel planning to minimise stock ageing or tactical costs in the future. This is a core role within our business, integral to providing commercial insight and identifying risk and opportunity within the brand.

You'll know a thing or two about managing data with the ability to highlight performance trends and advise management on the effectiveness of our actions.  Your analysis of sales performance is key to decision-making within the brand and your role plays a critical part in delivering ŠKODA's long term planning cycle.

You'll have strong analytical skills with an ability to identify trends, issues and opportunities to support and drive improvements. An understanding of a retail network environment would be beneficial as it's the beating heart of our business. You will also have high attention to detail and have the ability to influence key stakeholders.

So what can we offer you? We know people value different things, so along with a competitive salary, car and discretionary bonus, we offer a wide range of flexible benefits to suit you and your lifestyle.

Sounds like your kind of challenge? We'd love to hear from you…
