International chemical company. The Global Procurement department is based in Amsterdam, the European Head Quarter. The company has multiple production sites within Europe, e.g. Spain, UK, Germany, Austria, France, Netherlands. The culture in the Amsterdam office can best be described as very international/intercultural, with a lot of freedom to manage your own tasks. English is the common language.
The global procurement logistics team consists of several category managers, logistic buyers and operational buyers. You will report to the global logistics procurement head and will work closely with the global category manager packaging.
Because you are an expert on packaging you will be the driving power to develop and standardize the main packaging portfolio. It concerns packaging that must comply with regulation for either food safety, dangerous goods or pharma products. Packaging for 2 to 1.000 kg, for powders, fluids, granulate, etc.
You develop new options, while finding new suppliers or developing the current suppliers. Of course you are always up-to-date and/or are exploring your knowledge of the market, its trends and its suppliers. You will qualify the suppliers and will be working very actively on your vendor management to ensure quality, cost reductions and levels of service. Several projects will come your way; one of these projects will be creating an interactive oversight of the global packaging solutions with full specifications. Next to all this you will be supporting all RFQ, RFP, RFI`s and manage the implementation via trial and validation programs.
