CAREERS AT BELLROY
Demand Planner

IN A NUTSHELL

Bellroy is on the search for a Demand Planner to manage our inventory, generate sales forecasts and balance our supply and demand. We’re growing more than 30% year-on-year and focused on upgrading our processes and systems to have us ready for faster growth. As our Demand Planner, you will be vital to helping us keep pace during this time of rapid development and will be responsible for our inventory health in 5 parent locations and 12 child locations from 4 supply locations around the world.

As a part of our Operations team, you will be working closely with our Production and Sales teams to maximise inventory availability while minimising stock holding. You will need to combine an analytical and collaborative approach when generating sales forecasts, weaving historical sales trends with projections from our campaign planners and sales teams. You will be in charge of monitoring our inventory KPIs, noticing when we’re getting off-track and proactively putting corrective actions in place.

At Bellroy, we work with a growth mindset. We’re always experimenting, iterating and shifting in search of better ways to achieve our goals. If you get excited by the idea of working in a fast-paced environment in a considered way, fostering a culture of continuous improvement and doing work which has an impact, then you should probably read on…


YOU COULD BE THE ONE, IF…

You have a couple years of demand planning experience and are comfortable in ERP environments. You get a kick out of working with large datasets and can work a spreadsheet like nobody’s business. Transforming granular data into a neat, reliable supply plan sounds fun to you and something you can’t wait to get started on.

Practicality, logic and reliability are your super-powers. You care about doing things right and you have the patience to double check and make sure. Hard working, meticulous and highly organised, you can plan with precision and great attention to detail. Accuracy and the “nitty gritty” might seem dull to some, but it’s where you do your best work.

Bring us your systematic approach, analytical mind and data wrangling skills; In return, we’ll offer you a supportive team to bounce off, autonomy to get things done and the tools you need to do your thing.

OUR MISSION

Inspire better ways to carry.
Use business as a force for good.
Help the world, and our crew, flourish.

Our Spaces

'Bellroy' is a fusion of our two homes – Bells Beach and Fitzroy. Bells Beach brings a relaxed, outdoor vibe to balance Fitzroy's creative, urban style. The city and the sea; inspiration and adventure. Together they provide a perfect balance.

Bells Beach

Our beach HQ sits behind giant sandstone cliffs that overlook one of Australia’s best-known surfing coastlines. It’s where our Product Designers experiment in the Maker Lab, and our Sales team consume awesome amounts of espresso and Skype bandwidth. Things are more tranquil here than our Fitzroy neighbours and we like the focus that can create. There’s a cafe right next door if you need a quick bite and our 11am surf check always provides the perfect chance to reset the mind with some salt air.

Fitzroy

Our Fitzroy space is immersed in the middle of Melbourne’s creative hub. It’s where our Creative, Marketing, Engineering and Operations teams develop campaigns and ensure each Bellroy is sent safely across the world. Walk out the door and you’ll find streets bursting with energy (and the best ramen joint this side of Tokyo). There’s also an olympic-size pool just around the corner for those in need of a lunchtime refresh.

Remotely

Outside of our two main headquarters we have a team that works remotely - from Western Australia to parts of Asia, the USA and Europe. Being global is at the heart of Bellroy, it keeps us connected, and makes sure we see life from many different perspectives. If you have an internet connection and the flexibility to become part of a team you don’t see everyday, you might consider joining our growing global network.
