  • Project work, regionally and globally.
  • Management of the critical process for ordering and delivery of excise tax stamps.
  • Work closely with 3rd party warehouse provider and support in any issues with Track & Trace.

Just as important, the qualitative expectations are that you contribute to a strong team-spirit, are curious and want to influence the scope and content of the role, and that you are able to collaborate across various levels and functions.

The Profile

Ideally, you have some experience with financial planning, combined with relevant forecasting and demand planning experience. It is an advantage with experience from FMCG, but other industries with the full value chain is also applicable. You hold relevant academic credentials, have strong Excel skills and are fluent in Danish and English. Also, you demonstrate strong system skills, and it is favorable with some experience from working in SAP.

A strong and distinct personality is just as important. We hope that you are a curious individual, with interest in learning and development, and who dares to step into deep water, take calculated risks and make decisions in pressured situations.
