What will you do?
As a Commercial Projectmanager Cosmetic Packaging you will operate within Fasten’s 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 you will 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.

Many aspects emerge when developing packaging: creativity, entrepreneurship, management and, above all, planning. After a short working period in which you are taught the intricacies of the trade by an experienced Commercial Projectmanager Cosmetic Packaging, you will become directly responsible for your own customers and projects.

What is your background?

Bachelor’s degree, preferably in Business Studies, International Business or Commercial Economy.

Good command of English and Dutch, preferably German or French.

Commercial experience in an international B2B environment, ideally gained in the beauty industry and/or in the (plastic) packaging industry

Very good collaboration skills in an international environment.

Excellent project management skills and experience.

Who are you?

You are an entrepreneur: you have a dynamic way that ensures the further development of your accounts.

You are structured and you are a good analyst: you will need this to identify matters in advance and to bring projects to a successful conclusion.

You are decisive and goal oriented: a setback does not throw you off balance and you keep the overview. You are patient and persistent and you finish what you start.

You are pragmatic, with perseverance and diligence.

You are a strong communicator and you can adapt yourself quickly to new and different situations and cultures, also in an international environment.

You are positive and optimistic: you are level headed, you see matters in perspective and you have a good sense of humor.

What's in it for you?

An inspiring job in a highly skilled international company.

Lots of opportunities to grow, both personally and professionally.

A competitive salary, based on experience and knowhow.

Of course, a great bunch of colleagues.
