Standaard AkzoNobel is recruiting a Manager Logistics in Arnhem

About the company
AkzoNobel is a leading global paints and coatings company and a major producer of specialty chemicals, with leading market positions and brands in countries around the world. We operate in a number of important market segments ranging from buildings and infrastructure to transport, industrial and consumer goods. We’re also the sector leader in sustainability and are number one in the renowned Dow Jones Sustainability Index. In practical terms, that means our sustainable solutions are in your lives, and those of your friends and family, every day. We’re the people that make it possible for you to do what you need to do.

Bring a determined and strategic approach to a high profile role within a leading global organization

AkzoNobel’s Industrial Chemicals (IC) business unit (BU) produces and markets high purity salt, chlorine, caustic lye, hydrochloric acid, chloromethanes and monochloroacetic acid (MCA). These products are essential to daily life and used in the manufacture of vehicles, glass, performance plastics, pharmaceuticals, feed and foodstuffs, textiles and disinfectants. IC has a global presence with plants and joint ventures in the Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, the USA, China and Japan.
IC is part of the business area Specialty Chemicals.

IC’s Logistics Department is part of the BU Sales Operation Department and interlinks with the business side (Sales and Marketing) and the operational side (plant and site logistics) in order to best serve our wide customer base.

Within this context, your mission in this role is to manage the Logistics Department and set out a long-term strategy in cooperation with Purchasing, Corporate Logistics and the businesses. This strategy will align with BU and AkzoNobel Global Logistics strategies, and establish IC as the preferred supplier for our customers. A key objective is to establish working relationships with external stakeholders such as local governments, customers, and other companies using the same modalities.

Is this a challenge that matches your ambitions as an innovative and strategic project- and change manager? Have you acquired deep knowledge and experience of multiple logistic modalities, especially those applying to the Chemical industry? Can you display strong internal and external stakeholder management skills?

Above all, can you make a real difference within our dynamic, multinational and multicultural business environment?

You also align the Logistics strategy within the Sales and Operations Department, set-up a strategy for managing key suppliers, and apply AkzoNobel’s rigorous Continuous Improvement culture.

Further, you plan and carry out operational review meetings with key Logistics Service Providers, and align all Logistics activities in line with the HSE strategy and legal requirements.
