Internship Demand Planning

FacebookShare LinkedInShare
Your team
At Aviko interns are always needed. You will be part of the Demand Planning team which has a crucial role in the operational and investment planning of Aviko. The internship entails an assessment of expected product sales volumes in different regions and markets across the globe on the short, medium and longer run. Our forecasting practices are expected to be on a good level, but in light of the huge cost impact of reliable forecasting, we are looking for further optimization. The atmosphere is informal and we consider short lines of communication important. You will be working closely with the Demand Planning team. By observing, thinking along and cooperating you will get a good insight in forecasting. Furthermore, we encourage you to share your thoughts and take initiative in order to turn your internship into a unique experience. Of course, we will support you in this. Due to the COVID-19 measures set by the government we mostly work from home. However, we talk a lot through online meetings and are allowed to work at the office if this is necessary, especially during the start of your internship. We are specifically looking for someone in the final year of their studies. An international candidate is preferred.
