Over deze vacature

In this role you will work with area managers, directors and executive leadership team and commercial excellence specialists. You will be the first point of contact for pricing initiatives. Typical activities (but not restricted to) are: market analysis, pricing tool management and improvements, implementation, various weekly updates, pricing process and compliance, price adjustment mechanisms and ad hoc requests from commercial teams. Are you looking for a hands-on experience in an entrepreneurial and international setting that gives you opportunities to connect to the wider commercial decision making of local sales managers? This job is exactly what you need.


There is a new tender and the commercial team is keen on getting the business but how do we make sure we get market value? Through a market analysis and talking to product experts and production plants checking some BOM, you determine an optimal price band for the product. Now it’s time to connect with the commercial team and deal support. In the meantime, you get complaints from account managers and customer service representatives from Germany that the pricing tool takes too much time to fill in and some cost assumptions are challenged, causing issues in order handling. What has changed? In order to make a full diagnostic, you arrange your travel to the sales region for the upcoming week. And as we’re approaching the new fiscal year, finance and plant managers are reviewing their standard costing exercise. You are already excited to dig into budget analysis and macro-economic analysis of each country! After few weeks, eventually you receive positive feedbacks concerning the tender results as well as yet another request concerning price adjustment mechanism. Actually you want to review all price adjustment mechanism globally and check performance. Every day can be as exciting as this one at Greif!
