Variety – Challenge – International – Fast Switching – Passion
You are the entrepreneurial type of person that likes to spot and grab opportunities. You are always full of ideas and initiatives. Helping beauty brands in making them more successfully than they already are appeals you. Working for a very innovative and highly competitive packaging company that is on the rise makes you extra enthusiastic. As our account manager you will operate within our cosmetic packaging framework, that’s for sure. But you’ll also experience there is a lot (really a lot!) of space within for your ideas to really make a difference for your (potential) customers. This could be your chance to be part of, and to contribute to, one of the most fast-growing cosmetic packaging companies in the world!
Well to start with, as an Account Manager Cosmetic Packaging you’ll have a very varied job; One minute you’re presenting new innovations to a high-end customer and the next you’ll be responding to the trends in the mass market. So, besides variety, challenge is guaranteed.
You pioneer unique concepts and products from (international) cosmetics brands, retailers and private label manufacturers. You will be working with existing clients as well as prospecting for new business. You draw up quotes in response to visits or requests. If the offer becomes an order, you are the responsible person who will manage, with the support of several team members, the project from A to Z. This means that you draw up the project planning, line up suppliers and together with the design department you determine what is best for the customer. Of course, you keep the customer informed of all steps. You regularly switch with your colleagues in China so that the agreements in the field of purchasing and production of the product are fulfilled.
