Lastly, you will establish and maintain great collaboration with our sales organisations and other important stakeholders.

A strong and ambitious leader with a passion for dairy products
You have Dairy or FMCG food manufacturing experience from leading a dairy or similar scale and complexity. Cheese production knowledge and insight will be an advantage. You have acquired in-depth understanding of business optimization and efficiency methodologies and have a proven track record as a Senior Site Director or similar. Clearly, you must have the desire and drive to create change and set the direction for a dairy on both the strategic and the tactical level. In all that you do, you address your employees on the level.

You have established yourself as a strong leader with professional pride. You approach situations with an open mind-set as well as determination and clear priorities. You have excellent communication and commercial skills with the ability to create long-term relations both internally and externally. Your employees respect you for your insight, for your passion, and that you are a true ambassador for our products.
