Demand Planning Lead - Sussex, Worthing, BN111
In the first half of 2014, Southern Water combined their Asset Management and Capital delivery operations to create one Infrastructure Directorate. This new operating model has been established to deliver significant efficiency savings. In addition, Infrastructure is developing an in-house Engineering & Technical capability to provide optimal whole-life cost solutions to satisfy investment needs and customer & business outcomes.
As part of its strategic delivery for the next five year business plan (AMP6) six sub-divisions have been created:
• Water Quality & Environmental Policy
• Strategic Planning
• Integrated Planning
• Investment Programme Management
• Engineering & Technical Solutions
As a result of this restructuring initiative, the company has created a substantial number of new roles and responsibilities. New roles have been designed to maximise capability, unlock engineering potential, attract and retain talent in the business, driving efficiencies and collaboration, thereby revitalising our future.
Within the Infrastructure Directorate we are expanding our Strategic Planning team to meet our future challenges. This is an influential team who develop our five to 25 year strategic plans and ensure successful implementation of our delivery strategies in order to meet our promises to customers and our statutory requirements.
One of the key roles within this Infrastructure team is a Demand Planning Lead. This role is responsible for forecasting and planning demand on Southern Water's services and assets due to a number of possible changes such as population, customer behaviour, new developments, industry, weather patterns and climate change.
Reporting into the Demand Strategy Manager, one of the main demands of this role will be to work across the whole business at peer level and above to ensure high quality information is available for the use in Demand Planning.
Key requirements for this role are:
• A Science, Engineering or other numerate subject degree
• A post-graduate qualification in Science, Engineering, Water or Environment is desirable
• Significant experience in demand planning for infrastructure planning, preferably in the Water sector
• An excellent track record of data analyses and reporting and application of mathematical and statistical techniques, preferably within the Water sector
• The ability to demonstrate the completion of quality multi-disciplinary work programmes to time for the production of regulatory submissions
• Experience of managing internal and external resources beyond direct line management
This role is based in Southern Water's Durrington offices, in Worthing, West Sussex
