Over deze vacature

Are you challenged by a supply chain over 7 tiers deep? Are you thrilled by managing strategic product transfers or mitigating unexpected disruptions? Is change management part of you DNA? And do you enjoy managing stakeholders at senior and executive level? Then this might be the job for you.

The Supplier intervention manager leads cross functional project teams responsible for managing business critical changes in ASMLs supply chain. This can be mitigating a disruption (e.g. caused by flooding, fire, pandemic, material scarcity) or implementing product transfers (e.g., in-, out- or second sourcing). Focus is to secure ASML’s material needs. Activities of the multidisciplinary team include solution design, risk assessment, product or process re-design, release of new suppliers, phase in/phase out planning and stakeholder alignment & communication.

One of Sourcing & Supply Chain (S&SC) key responsibilities is material availability for ASML’s factories and Service Business. In today’s complex multi-tier supply chains, this is only possible by addressing potential bottlenecks, supply risks and disruptions before they impact our customers. S&SC manages its supply chains up to seven tiers deep to ensure ASML’s supply keeps pace with technological developments and can adapt to changing business conditions and external threats. Successful Intervention Management requires co-location at ASML suppliers’ as such you can be expected to spend 60-80% of your time at suppliers’ premises during an intervention.


The Supplier intervention manager is responsible for:

  • Leading multidisciplinary technical orientated project team(s)
  • Alignment with internal and external stakeholders
  • Creating the oversight of initiatives, workstreams, people, time, and resources necessary to keep the teams moving forward
  • Providing analysis and solution options to Steering Committee regarding high impact decisions 
  • Communicating initiatives, workstreams and process, and connecting the dots to resolve challenges
  • Specifically for disruptions: build and lead the daily operation of solution team & triage all incoming requests, determine priority and the proper course of action
