Here, you can be sure to influence the products, ways of working and projects in a company known for having the industry’s highest levels of quality, innovation and food safety.  

Work across functions and handle your own product portfolio

You join the Customer team in our Global QEHS department (QEHS, Quality, Environment, Health & Safety) as part of the Supply Chain organisation as a QEHS officer. We start each day discussing current requests and reviewing and delegating new ones. Like the rest of us, you will become responsible for a defined range of AFI products in relation to QEHS matters and act as the link between customers, sales and production. Thus, you work across functions to provide qualified service to all stakeholders as you e.g.:

  • Be the microbiological expert within the Customer team in specification parameters and test methods
  • Comment and review customer questionnaires as well as purchase and product specifications
  • Do quality alignment and troubleshooting across production sites

A quality mindset and great collaboration skills

To excel in this position, you are ready to act as a liaison between customers, our supply chain and sales organisation and the rest of AFI. Through your microbiological knowledge you help the team and the organisation with setting the direction for decision making.

Through positive engagement, you ensure proactive collaboration and communication, thus enabling our product portfolio through numerous simultaneous tasks. But you are also a specialist, and we need you to have the eye for detail and analytical strain that goes with this as well as the IT skills to work in SAP.
