We’re now looking for Happy Socks’ next Demand Planner to be responsible for Happy Sock’s core product groups. You'll be working at our HQ in Stockholm and will be part of a fun-loving and driven multicultural office of approx. 120 people from over 25 countries.

 The role:

You will play a key role in creating and developing plans and key strategic initiatives that will drive the production and demand of our biggest product groups. Being part of our Purchasing team means obsessing over the optimization of stock levels; when problem solving, stripping out what is not essential and focusing on what is; blazing the right path of action, zeroing in on what is critical and letting go of what isn’t and being part of a high performing team and connecting with others. You will report to our Purchase Manager.

Tasks & Responsibilities:

  • Create a 12-month production & demand plan for Happy Socks biggest product categories
  • Optimize sales and inventory turn with a focus on forecast accuracy and bias improvement

You are a hard-core team player, analytical, structured & organised. You are a person who naturally walk the extra mile to meet requested results & deadlines. 

In this position you'll do everything - from high to low, so it's important that you're not a prestigious person and want to get your hands dirty! 

The role requires a happy-get-it-done attitude, a natural sense of problem solving and decision making.
