With approx. 200 employees based across EMEIA this team works with the Sales function to provide elite business and financial support.

As an Enterprise Forecasting Analyst you will be part of a large Demand Forecasting & Analytics team within Sales Finance. You will independently lead, analyse and construct the quarterly forecast for the EMEIA Enterprise business, which is important to the continued growth of Apple.
