Do you want to be a part of a creative work environment of a company in growth? Do you have the ability to manage a complex supplier base and product categories? And have you proven your skills in a previous position? If you can answer yes to these questions, this career opportunity might be perfect for you. The opportunities for personal development in this position are endless…

Nordic tradition and heritage

&tradition is a Danish design company with the basic principle that tradition should be closely tied to innovation. The company’s unique portfolio of furniture and lighting solutions spans from the 1930s to today and shows an impressive catalogue of designs by internationally renowned designers. To strengthen their supply chain organisation, &tradition is looking for an experienced and highly motivated Category Manager.

As a Supply Chain Category Manager, you will be responsible for the entire supply chain for selected product categories, and your key tasks will be:

  • Team Manager of a group of highly skilled purchasers.
  • Ensure high performance from suppliers and maintain close relations with them.
  • Analyse, report, and act on supplier- and assortment performance.
  • Ensure a smooth and timely flow of information to the sales team about product availability.
  • Collaborate closely with Product Development and suppliers during the development of new products.

This position will be situated at the company’s office in Copenhagen. You will be part of the Purchasing & Category Management team and refer directly to the Supply Chain & Product Development Director. Travelling is estimated to 20 days per year.

Your structure makes everyday life easier for the entire organisation

With extensive knowledge of the principles of supply chain management and purchasing, you will take full responsibility of the supplier base for selected product categories. Your structured mind-set with solid supply chain management experience combined with your excellent analytical skills, form your strong foundation.

Your work style is characterised by being outgoing, dynamic and by taking initiative. You thrive with deadlines and never miss them, due to your strong communication and negotiation skills. Your approach builds strong relationships, making you a natural team leader for the Purchasing & Category Management team.

&tradition hopes that you have experience from the design industry and a strong market knowledge, but this is not a prerequisite. However, it is vital that you are familiar with supply chain management from a similar position. Most importantly, you must look forward to and have the energy for further development. To be successful in this position, you must be fluent in written and oral English and hopefully fluent in Danish as well.
