You always think forward and know which actions are needed to get things done. As part of an ambitious team, you won’t have to do this alone. Teamwork makes the dream work.

Reach your full potential as an Assistant Trader

As an assistant trader, you work for big international customers at unique locations. You are in control, and you coordinate the whole process. As you link logistics and Purchase, you maintain the overview. You process orders, make quotations and maintain an overview of the logistics process. In addition, you contact intern departments and extern customers daily. You think along in offering alternative products to our customers, and you support the Traders in sourcing goods within the assortment. Before leaving work, you make sure all the goods are double-checked. Afterwards, you contact the customer about the status and arrange the correct documentation. You process everything and send it to the customer later. Because of your organization skilled, you reach every deadline.

You are constantly prepared, and you think forward. You identify a problem, and you think forward. If a container is not filled yet, you think about how to manage this. You know exactly which actions are needed to handle a request. That’s how you build your schedule. Since you deal with many different projects, you know how to set priorities. You maintain the overview, and you recognize every customer and their request. In addition, you share your overview with your colleagues so that they can take over at any time.

This makes you happy

People describe you as a control freak. You are in control of planning, arranging, and organizing and are good at it. Multitasking is no problem for you at all. You work hard, and you know how to follow orders at a fast pace. Hard work within a team gives you energy. Despite the hectic, you always keep your head cool. In other words, you always handle your deadlines.

With your critical eye, you think of how to realize better and more efficient processes. If goods are stored in different warehouses worldwide, you wonder how to bring them into one container for the customer. Also, you are dealing with customers within, as without the EU. This means you are working with different delivery times. You are eager enough to figure this all out and ensure the customer about the delivery. Together with your team, you prepare the container for a customer’s delivery. You know which actions are needed, and because of your social skills, you know how to manage this together. 

You are a team player and a fast learner. You prefer to work result-oriented. Also, you are organizationally skilled and accurate in administrative components. You are a real go-getter.
