You are a champion when it comes to communication and collaboration and you will work closely with your team colleagues, product managers, project managers and suppliers.
To succeed in this role, we believe that you have a relevant post-secondary education and that you have several years of relevant procurement experience at an international company. There you have gained the knowledge on how it is to work with big suppliers, you have made a few mistakes that you have learned from and you are now secure enough in yourself to challenge the Duni Group supplier base to secure attractive and competitive agreements.
