You will be building up a sustainable contractor pipeline; identifying new suppliers, equipment, trends and end customer demands which should result in a list of qualified suppliers that we are ready to work with.

Developing long-term relations with our key suppliers - leading to innovative contract models, following and creating new market trends, lessons learned and continuous improvement are additional responsibilities in this role. In case things go wrong in our execution you are the one knowing the subcontractor from an NKT perspective taking all our dealings into account; tenders, ongoing projects, future opportunities to find the most beneficial outcome for NKT as a whole.

You probably hold a master´s degree in business, engineering, economics or similar. If not – you have relevant working experience.

With our market being global, international travel will be part of your daily job.
