What will you do?
In this role, you will be responsible for the execution of day-to-day procurement activities across the category. The primary focus is to lead and deliver on planned activities but also to tackle ad-hoc and unplanned activities to ensure the maximum possible value for Volvo Cars. You will also be expected to help, guide, and support your category team colleagues when needed. You will support and implement supplier strategies, including leading cost activities, and creating and maintaining commercial relationships with suppliers and stakeholders. You will work proactively with key stakeholders to understand your product/function, its market, delivery base, and potential innovation, to find ways to increase the value of Volvo Cars, including cost, quality, and sustainability.
Do you fit the profile?
You have a degree in Business, Engineering, or equivalent combined with a few years of experience from commercial and/or engineering work including commercial negotiations and legal knowledge. You have strong business acumen combined with high integrity and can prioritize your own work and always deliver on time. You are a natural negotiator and skilled at stakeholder management since supplier relations are a key aspect of the job. Displays & Comfort Functions are considered a global commodity, so excellent communication skills (written and oral) in English are a requirement and additional languages are advantageous. You need to be courageous and dare to question the status quo and work proactively and collaboratively to build a better understanding and work for common solutions.
Competence and experience are important, but personality and passion are key! The mobility industry is changing rapidly, and the competitive environment and our company’s strategy might change fast. Therefore, we are not only valuing your previous experience and competencies, but also your personality and your passion to develop and embrace unknown future challenges. Most important is that you share our values, truly believe in and are motivated by our purpose, and have an honest ambition to join a dynamic team that is deeply committed to transforming and progressing the consumer experience in the mobility industry at a global scale.
