posted on: 03/08/2021 -

The job

To strengthen our presence in the wood market in Germany, we are looking for a local Wood Purchaser.

  • You work closely with the Belgian sales team, but act as the first point of contact for the forest owners, local authorities, and sawmills, from whom we would like to purchase wood.
  • You establish contacts and agree prices with them.
  • You are responsible for quality control, measuring, preparing the packing lists, and arranging the loads.

Your profile

  • A degree in Wood Science and Technology or equal by experience. In addition, you are proficient in Word and Excel.
  • You manage your tasks independently, but you consult and discuss them with your direct colleagues as well.
  • You have a commercial mindset with strong communicative abilities enabling you to establish long-term relationships with the customers.
  • You have strong organizational skills and a hands-on mentality.
  • You are fluent in German and have a good base of English. Knowledge of any other language is a plus.
  • You don’t mind being on the road (especially Nordrhein-Westfalen, Rheindland-Pfalz, Saarland and Baden-Württemberg) and being in the woods very often. You also enjoy traveling to Belgium once a month to meet your colleagues at our Head Quarters.
