Offre d'emploi : (Jr) Key Account Manager - FMCG - Hot Beverages
The client is looking for a (Jr) Key Account Manager to join his team in Belgium.
The company is undergoing a transformation. With its dynamic brands, its products appreciated by consumers and supported by a solid international group, the company has strong development ambitions for the future.
Because the performance of the company is basically the sum of the performance of the employees who compose it, we put our People at the heart of our plans and our concerns because we are convinced that our people must be the first source of competitive advantage for our company.
We believe that defining the best direction, defining the best plans and executing them perfectly on a daily basis require the best employees, motivated by a strong corporate culture, an efficient organization, in an environment that values personal development and performance, and where everyone understands the consequences of what they do on their environment and why they are there.
Our ambition is therefore to create an environment where everyone excels in their role, collaborates effectively with their colleagues, flourishes professionally in their role and develops technically and personally.
Our business plan revolves around two components: trust & pleasure, for our employees, for our consumers, for our customers and for our shareholders.
For employees, instilling confidence in them involves simple things: giving them access to information, allowing them to enjoy real autonomy in their actions, making them responsible for their choices and letting them organize themselves freely in their work.
The pleasure of our teams goes through multiple opportunities to learn and progress, allowing them to flourish in a pleasant, inspiring and challenging work environment, financially stimulating in order to see them proud to surpass themselves, together, as a team.
We believe in the strength of an assumed culture, without compromise, at the service of the development of our teams and our objectives.
