Supply Planner – Professional Products Division
At L’Oréal Professional Products Division (PPD), our 10 world-renowned brands create products for the finest salons. We are privileged to partner with hair care professionals worldwide, and we provide them with the latest innovation, newest technologies and best education in order to deliver outstanding professional service to discerning consumers.
Now we are looking for a driven and ambitious Supply Planner to manage the supply of our incredible brands Decleor and Carita.
