Your new perspectives, insights and ideas are the cornerstones of our success and we encourage you to think out of the box and structure your workflow with a high level of freedom. You consider yourself an expert in managing complex projects, ensuring that the products are ready for manufacturing and on time for launch. The upstream stakeholders are among others R&D, IT and Master Data and the downstream stakeholders being distribution, hubs and sister companies. You have a wide interface into our organization which is why you should feel at ease with working with many stakeholders across Marketing, R&D and Operations.
As your stakeholders are spread globally, a certain amount of travelling (20-25 days/year) is necessary.
