We are looking for a very bright and driven addition to our Global Product Management (GPM) team where you will have a unique opportunity to make a difference and gain experience early in your career. We are looking for someone with the skills and interest in working in an international, fast-paced and dynamic environment and who has a genuine interest in the building materials industry.
If you are inspired by the above and are ready to deliver an extraordinary effort, then this commercial product specialist position in our blinds and shutters category team, one of the three global product categories within GPM, may be just what you are looking for.
Together with a dedicated team of 6 employees, you will provide commercial support to our regional product managers and our sales companies in order to ensure effective execution of our blinds and shutters strategy.
You will be the primary point of contact for our regional product managers regarding commercial questions related to product pricing, positioning and promotion. Your tasks will include ensuring the quality of local product marketing content, both online and in print, supporting in the development and execution of launch packages/activities and participating in various commercial analyses. Furthermore, you will also participate in cross-functional GPM commercial projects.
You will be based in Hørsholm (just north of Copenhagen) and being part of a global organisation, you can expect to travel approx. 30 days annually – both in Denmark and internationally.
You have recently graduated at the top 25% of your class, with a Master’s Degree in business, economics or the like.
You are hard working, practical, have a hands-on approach to business and are not afraid to take on new tasks or operate in new areas under changing conditions. You are comfortable dealing with complex tasks under high uncertainty and relatively high degree of ambiguity. You are able to switch tasks with short notice and can keep a cool head in the process. You are structured and analytical in your approach to problem solving, but are outgoing and have strong interpersonal skills.
As a person, you are a team player, possess great drive, and communicate and collaborate easily with people from different cultural backgrounds - both internally and externally.
It is important that you can navigate within a matrix organisation with many different stakeholders and that you can achieve results in this type of environment.
Last, but not least, you communicate fluently in English, both spoken and in writing.
In addition to operating at a highly professional level, our team is characterised by an informal tone and a healthy sense of humour. We work as one team to reach our ambitious results. We believe in empowering people, and we support this through sharing knowledge, delegating responsibility and investing in people who strive to make a difference.
The international environment in the VELUX Group is a great source of inspiration with a lot of good ideas and best practices from all across the world and the international setting is in our DNA.
The VELUX Group offers exciting challenges, great opportunities of influencing your own development with competent and dedicated colleagues where commitment, thoroughness and mutual respect are among the core values.
