We’re RAW.
At G-Star, we are obsessed with denim. Together we push to invent, explore and take craftsmanship to another level. Down to the smallest detail and with a strong belief that there is no limit to what denim can do.
To achieve this, we are always looking for hardcore thinkers and do-ers , who want to join us in creating the future of premium and purposeful denim.
Are you up for the challenge?
Are you the perfect fit for our team?

Then we would love to hear from you!

Here's what we'll do together:
As the Supply-Planning Manager, you are responsible for overseeing all product movements from the vendors to our G-Star warehouses across the world based on the expected demand. Furthermore, you will manage the data & pricing backbone of G-Star, to assure all master data is properly maintained.
The Supply-Chain team is responsible for the total global inflow of all products from material bookings until delivery of the final product into one of our G-Star stores worldwide. We are looking for that multitasker who can match the worlds of demand-and-supply, and is capable and eager to further built a customer-focused Supply-Chain department.

  • Together with the global purchasing, merchandise and controlled-allocation teams making sure that we deliver all new collections on-time and according to the demand.
  • In-depth analysis on lead-times, volumes and costing and making key decisions to assure smooth inbounds whilst setting and monitoring key-performance-indicators.

  • Manage team of supply-planners (2 FTE) and data & pricing (1 FTE) with their daily tasks and provide annual goals and targets to work towards.
  • You will be on top off the current and future topics and report directly into Head of Supply Chain. You will have the freedom to develop your own long-term agenda, and further develop the department towards full-customer focus.

Here's what you bring to the table:

  • Experience in (co)managing teams of 2-4FTEs
  • Strong operational skillset, with good understanding of supply-chain activities.
  • Ability to work with many local and international stakeholders, both internally and externally.
  • Data-driven, organized and analytical.
  • A solid understanding of optimizing processes, inventory flows and pricing mechanisms.
  • Strong personality and efficient performer under pressure.
  • Experience with SAP and PLM-systems is a plus.

Here’s what we bring to the table:
Beyond a competitive salary, working at G-Star brings many other perks and exciting opportunities: an awesome and diverse team that collaborates to change the game; a work environment that offers room for fun, inspiration and innovation; a clothing budget; a healthy, fresh and delicious lunch and even discounts in various fitness clubs and last but not least, a discount on a new bicycle.

What will happen next:

  • We will thoroughly review your CV.
  • We have a large expat community at G-Star, so please apply in English.
  • When we hopefully find what we are looking for, we will call you for a chat and if it’s a good fit, we’ll plan our first interview.
  • Because we’re very curious how you’d survive a mission impossible, we ask you to prepare a real-life business case in a follow-up interview.
  • Having an agile mindset is very important at G-Star, therefore we ask you to participate in an (online) Learning Agility Assessment.
  • When we’re ready to commit to each other, we’ll finalize the terms we’ve discussed and we’ll explain to you how to order your first pair of jeans from the G-Star employee store. Good luck!
