Our IT Centre EMEA counts 3 departments: IT Planning (PLAN), IT Development (BUILD) and IT Infrastructure/Operations (RUN). Within our IT Development department, we have 2 competence centres: one in Madrid and one in Oostkamp.
You will become part of IT Development in Oostkamp.

The IT Development department in Belgium consists of 20 internal colleagues strengthened with external consultants and an offshore team. The group is young and dynamic with a good team spirit and open communication structure. We implement innovative IT solutions for our 12000+ Daikin colleagues all over Europe & Middle East.



We are looking for an enthusiastic (senior) IT Functional Analyst and Project Manager to structure, improve and promote our Supply Chain Management & Planning (SCP) processes in our EMEA region.


After an intensive introduction and training period, your main tasks will be:

  • Leading different (international) projects within your area of expertise and cross-module; this with focus on standardization, uniformization and innovation.
    In doing so, you take our “project management methodology” into account to deliver high-quality IT solutions towards business. This also includes the presence of clear documentation and a proper hand-over to our IT Operations Team (RUN).

  • You will coordinate, analyse & implement improvement requests in your area of expertise in close cooperation with your business peers, internal IT colleagues and our offshore team. This with a critical, though constructive mindset taking best practices into account. Although we hand-over live projects to our RUN team, assistance in 3rd line IT support is sometimes required.

  • You will follow and explore the future roadmap on IT solutions within the SCM domain. This includes studying, planning and driving innovation (Eg. S/4HANA, SAS, AI,…) and bring our strategy into reality.

    • G-ATP for Available-To-Promise and backorder processing

At the moment, we are busy with a Supply Chain Planning roadmap to replace SAP APO with SAP IBP and S/4HANA advanced ATP.


We see you as a main driver to standardize and improve our SCM processes within an EMEA context.
