Junior Forecast Analyst
HelloFresh’s Business Intelligence team aims to steer the business through robust and insights-driven data analytics, in order to steer decision-making and overall, improve the business. This is a fantastic opportunity to grow YouFoodz, a leading HelloFresh brand focused on serving ready-to-eat meals across Australia.
We are looking for a passionate analyst who will own the Youfoodz forecast in Australia -- from high level budgeting, to determining the number of customer orders, to the number of carrots we need to order.

This individual will also have the opportunity to work on exciting forecast projects that support our entire HelloFresh ANZ group of brands -- HelloFresh Australia, HelloFresh New Zealand, and EveryPlate Australia, in addition to YouFoodz.
We are looking for a self-motivated and intellectually-curious individual, with a keen interest in using data analytics to understand and forecast customer behavior. An ideal candidate will thrive in a fast-paced environment and enjoys both diving deep into data to identify trends, and rolling up their sleeves to get things done. In addition to this, you will champion and role model HelloFresh’s DNA.
