You contribute to the business development and have a high integrity when it comes to health and safety.
You approach problems in an analytical manner, systematically identify our customers’ needs and creatively find potential solutions. You enjoy working independently as much as in team and you have strong communicational skills, and are described by other people as constructive, results oriented and genuinely interested in continuous improvements.
