Tom Peeters - Special Steel Junior Trader Latin America

My working day at Manuchar can be compared to working in every city of the world in one day: my first cup of coffee is accompanied by the daily business with China and Taiwan, at noon clients and suppliers from Africa and Europe start contacting me about their enquiries and pending orders and the afternoon is typically the time at which I contact our clients in Central and South America search for new opportunities and business development.
Every time zone is characterized by its own language and its own business culture. During business trips you need to adapt to the local customs and the working style of your clients: every client has its own trigger points. This situation creates a challenging and interesting environment to work in! Manuchar provides an endless range of opportunities to grow and excel in this international environment.

Sarah Vermeiren - Chemicals & Steel Trader Caribbean

Since the start of my career not one single day has been the same. Back to back steel trading, strategic supply chains in chemical distribution and problem-solving logistics, every day brings new opportunities and challenges.
During regular customer and supplier visits, I'm in contact with a wide variety of industries and businesses, going from steel processors to hardware stores, from detergent to paint producers, from multinationals to local companies.
Together with a great team of colleagues, all these versatile aspects of our business are for me the best ingredients for an interesting and challenging job.

File Administration team - for Chemicals West Africa

Although we have our own responsibilities, we constantly interact and learn from one another. We appreciate and respect each other and each other's work and help our colleagues if needed (backing-up during holidays, taking over work in case of overload, etc.). And this is only possible because we all know that there's no I in "TEAM". We are hard workers, but hey, we also like to have a laugh from time to time and even organize an after-work drink every now and then.

Mark Jacobs - Region Manager Africa

Working for Manuchar can be compared with a long, interesting journey. A journey where you get to learn a lot of new things, where you are continuously confronted with new challenges and especially where you get the chance to take initiative and grow in an organized way at a healthy speed.
After 1 year of training in administration, I received the opportunity to independently give administrative and commercial support to one of our senior traders. Soon I was asked to combine my administrative and supporting job with some telesales and market development in East Africa.
Later, I was given the opportunity to become junior trader, started traveling frequently and got involved in sourcing and logistics to grow to a more senior trader function.
And my story continued. Knowing the region in West Africa, I got the opportunity to establish and follow up on affiliates for Manuchar in Mauritania, Ivory Coast and Ghana and was based for 5 years in Ivory Coast with my family. I recently moved back to Antwerp and the experience I gained over the last 17 years created a new opportunity for me to become responsible for a whole region.
No more words are needed to show how great it is to work for a company that can offer a wide range of opportunities on the long term.

Tom Catthoor - Accountant Responsible

Manuchar's expansion of the last years has undeniably influenced my work scope and responsibilities. This is not surprising, if you realize that we have supported the Manuchar group to grow from a handful of companies with limited budgeting, reporting and consolidation requirements to a well-organized multinational where intensive, efficient communication between headquarters and its worldwide network of affiliates has become key. On the wave of this evolution, many of my responsibilities have become more complex or more extensive and therefore also more interesting of course. I keep my expertise up-to-date through regular trainings and I develop my capabilities by being part of projects like the implementation of our new ERP package. Thanks to the frequent interaction with my colleagues from our commercial departments, I stay connected with the latest developments in our group. Because for sure, there's more to come!

François Hertoghe - Logistics Manager Ivory Coast

My challenging and diversified experience at Manuchar began in 2008 with a training in file handling at our headquarters in Antwerp. After 10 months, I started traveling to West Africa and when I got the chance to assist an experienced colleague to start up a new affiliate in Ivory Coast I moved to Abidjan. With great support from all colleagues worldwide, I gained experience in commercial activities and got involved in the follow-up of steel transforming activities in Mauritania. Today I am responsible for the operations and logistics of our own products in Ivory Coast. Next to that, we are now also developing logistic services for third parties, such as the handling of cashew nuts.
It is a great feeling to experience all these activities in different environments, but always backed by the same support. At Manuchar we can count on each other in case of problems and we share successes together.
