Our expectations are that you bring in a strong theoretical background (properly Cand. Merc. or HD), several years’ experience in the food, ingredients or like industry and a proven track record of working with strategic sourcing.

You are a natural at building relations (internal and with suppliers) and you take clear ownership and make things happen!

As you will be part of both new exiting R&D projects and take full ownership of your own supplier portfolio, it is imperative that you are a strong negotiator, can develop supply agreements, are structured and have a keen business focus.

To succeed in the role, you are experienced with:

  • establishing and negotiating supply agreements with direct material suppliers

Sounds interesting?
