Working in one of our B2B commercial teams means operating in a diverse, multi-disciplinary team. Our colleagues work on strategic and tactical challenges with significant impact for our customers and for FrieslandCampina itself. With our strategic customers we follow the so-called diamond approach. The sales managers then acts as an orchestrator of partnerships in various disciplines and at various levels.
As commercial processes in B2B tend to be complex, we look for innovative thinkers with excellent influencing skills. Personal characteristics such as being a team player, pro-active, and results-oriented are essential to be successful in this environment. A commercial mindset, international outlook, and ability to both think strategically and ensure effective execution are other elements for success. There are plenty of opportunities for growth, within and across disciplines, and also across operating companies or on corporate level.
