We are seeking an Occupancy Planner to join and help our team successfully manage the supply, capacity and demand of a building, campus or region portfolio of space for a specific client at the business unit level.
As an Occupancy Planner, you’ll be assisting with the development of migration plans and sequencing of group-level and individual moves as well as facilitate and/or resolve planning issues identified in customer planning meetings. You will ensure that planning is aligned with corporate guidelines, and that all scenarios maximize use of space. You will recommend, educate, and enforce space policies/standards, procedures and protocols and notify the client of customer requested exceptions. You will get familiar with space utilization methods and presenting utilization data to drive productive spaces.
You’ll need to have a great knowledge in Corporate Real Estate. In this role, you will prepare and update project status reports on actual seat demand versus projected seat demand at the building level, reporting out on the current supply and capacity, and forecast inventory changes as required. You’ll be charged with assembling, updating and reporting the top-down and bottoms-up seat count projections collected at the group-level for an annual planning horizon and work with the client to reconcile discrepancies from top-down projections, as well as track and report actual seat demand at the group level.
Key responsibilities include:
To be successful in this role, you should be able to ensure accurate reporting of information, and foster critical relationships between various individuals and organizations communication channels will exist with:
· Corporate Real Estate to review and resolve planning forecast requirements, concerns and issues;
· Business Unit leadership to collect headcount forecasts and resolve headcount forecast discrepancies between leadership's numbers and those collected at the group level;
· Corporate Finance group to gather top-down headcount and growth projections;
· Project management to review planning strategies that drive construction projects and support implementation of these projects;
· Move coordination and facility management teams to review and approve moves, develop migration plans and conduct facility audits;
· Other members of the occupancy planning team to ensure cross campus/portfolio strategy plans are developed
Every day is different, and in all these activities, we’d encourage you to show your ingenuity.
· A Bachelor's Degree in Real Estate, Finance, Architecture, Design, Construction Management, or related field is required
· 3 – 5 years of experience in corporate environment.

You’ll need to be dynamic and technologically savvy and utilize software to support planning solutions and communicate ideas clearly with planning team and lines of businesses. You will be successful if you have advanced skills in Microsoft Excel (pivot table, vlook-up, cell calculations), and AutoCAD (basic test-fits and square foot calculations). Proficiency in Microsoft Office suite and ability to consolidate data and floor plans into Power Point for presentations to client and lines of business is highly valued. You’ll be effective in your role by learning to ask the right questions to understand the underlying needs of our clients. You’ll discover how to be proactive and innovative with solutions for your stakeholders.
Excellent communication skills are important – both written and spoken – and we’ll expect you to work independently, multi-task, and manage your time to meet deadlines. You keep on top of things as you’ll often need to reorganize your time day to day, to deal with your team’s changing necessities and requests.
