Are you up for the challenge to ensure a smooth and efficient procurement process, providing the best deals and create and foster long-term relationships with our suppliers?

As "Procurement and Assurances Specialist", you are part of the finance department. You will be directly reporting to our CFO. You are the first point-of-contact for the business, and you will help them when they would like to supply the office (equipment, furniture, IT tools/licenses). If anyone has claims and insurance issues, you will be their help (you will arrange the company insurance of Dept). 

You will be designing and implementing purchasing processes, suggesting the best way to roll this out globally - building and enhancing what has been done so far. You will benchmark and negotiate with suppliers to obtain the best price and conditions for current purchasing decisions - providing optimum quality at value for money for our business departments. It will be your task to build strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders. Your responsibility to ensure all contractual documentation is up-to-date and complete while being in charge of contract renewals. Of course, our legal colleague can assist you when you have legal questions. In this role, you get the opportunity to play an active part in the further development of the procurement and assurances function. 

We are a young company and the best minds work every day for a wide range of customers, such as KLM, Bugaboo, Etos,, Oxxio and Philips. Yes, we are eager to bring on board the most talented experts in the game, but we are also looking for a perfect Dept-fit. Someone who is eager to learn and strives towards a better world, takes the stage, is a futurist at heart, and someone who is down to participate in curling activities once in a while. Ultimately, we are looking for a unique individual who is able to strengthen our collective. We strongly support diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
