Resource Planning & Insights Manager (Brand Homes)

Organisation: Ian MacLeod Distillers

Location: Hybrid

Resource Planning & Insights Manager opportunity!

We are now recruiting for a Resource Planning & Insights Manager to join our Brand Homes Operational team. This role will report directly to our Group Brand Homes Operations Manager. This is an exciting and brand new role which will be offered full-time/permanent and will operate on a hybrid basis between our core brand homes sites across Glengoyne (Glasgow), Rosebank (Falkirk) and Edinburgh Gin (Edinburgh) and remote home working. The successful candidate must therefore have flexibility in their working arrangements and ideally live within a commutable distance to our sites across the Central Belt in Scotland. Candidates must also have current eligibility to live and work in the UK as sponsorship is not possible for this opportunity.

Our brand homes operational team are the public face of Ian Macleod Distillers and our core brands, bringing our world class processes and spirits to life, communicating the essence of our brands in a way that fundamentally delights consumers, inspiring long-term brand devotion.

As Resource Planning & Insight Manager your role will be to partner and fully support the Brand Homes Management team through your planning expertise, commercial acumen and analytical expertise. You will be a key component of the Brand Homes leadership team ensuring that tactical and strategic decisions are grounded in data-based findings, insights and recommendations to secure the best possible outcomes in relation to employee satisfaction, visitor delight and financial delivery.

You will play a key role in implementing new systems within the Brand Homes, including owning the day to day delivery and evolved development of our Time and Attendance workforce management system and a suite of Dynamics 365 CRM and financial management systems. It will be important that you utilise all of these systems to deliver reporting and actionable management information to colleagues.

You will execute a planning process which utilises business intelligence to ensure optimal timing of activities and staffing resources to meet visitor demands whilst managing staffing costs and the most effective deployment of the annualised hours budget across each year.

This is a truly unique role and one which is very operationally focussed in terms of scheduling and forecasting hours against visitor centre numbers and projections, with strong commercial insight and MI. It’s very much about tourism, visitor numbers, spend and scheduling support.
