What you can expect

  • You take responsibility for the strategic direction of the “subcontractor” product group assigned to you and develop innovative and tailor-made sourcing strategies, which you plan and implement in close cooperation with operational purchasing as well as the other specialist and interface departments.

  • You establish standards and assess suppliers and their performance characteristics in order to ensure and continuously develop successful and goal-oriented collaboration in the long term.
