Key Account Manager Projects
Full Time
Alphen aan den Rijn, Netherlands

Create the relationships that create better experiences.

For us going to work everyday has an even greater purpose than putting the latest product or technology on the market. It’s about improving the everyday lives of millions. By staying humble and open for new ideas – we can push the boundaries for cooking, cleaning and wellbeing at home. But to keep doing so, we need more people who want to innovate and re-imagine what life at home can be.

For our office in Alphen a/d Rijn (the Netherlands), we are urgently looking for a professional and highly motivated Key Account Manager Projects (fulltime position – 40 hours on a weekly basis).

With strong brands, a unique heritage, and a reputation for taste, care and wellbeing that is second to none, sales here is not a hard sell. That doesn’t prevent us from striving to be better tomorrow than we are today, so we continue to innovate, to be even more competitive and build our business around our customers. Which makes this an exciting opportunity to join us at the forefront of the project development market where we’re shaping living for the better.

A day at work

You’ll work in partnership with your key customers - project developers within real estate, the leisure and the healthcare industry – by leading and spearheading the relationship with them. That involves collaborating with customers’ managers and colleagues across the business, to own and build a client relationship that delivers mutual success and continues to grow in order to meet the assigned objectives (revenue, volume, average selling price and margin). 

You will develop and monitor the annual budget and you will manage the forecasting process for sound inventory deployment and stock management. Free to leverage pricing, promotions, ambassador programmes, events and campaigns, you’ll hit targets your way, always with the customer experience front of mind.

• Self-starting - With lots of initiative, you always have something to do and thrive on being productive.
• Resilient - You seek out the opportunities and set about realizing them with a customer first mindset.
• Influential - You know your stuff and can articulate it well; building a case that is sound and people can buy into.
• Open-minded - For you, every challenge offers opportunity and potential. You just have to find it. 

Education & experience

• You have a solid working experience in a business- and project-oriented position with a successful track record, preferably in consumer durables or within the kitchen design market.
