i+solutions is looking for two energetic, pioneering and experienced team members.

A Global Sourcing & Procurement Manager (1 fte) and a Global Logistics and Supply Chain Manager (1 fte).

It’s an exciting time to join i+solutions as we embark upon a new phase in making our organization more robust and aligned with the needs of our clients. Our ultimate goal is to help our clients improve the health of their communities by building sustainable health systems. It is this ambition that drives us. We intend to increase our impact on health care at the patient level by helping our clients develop an innovative, effective and agile Supply Chain Management system.

In both roles, you will lead a team of supply chain
specialists in The Netherlands, either in the Global Sourcing & Procurement team or the Logistics team. Together with the team and other stakeholders you will steer the global supply chain (sourcing & procurement or logistics) of pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical commodities. You will report directly to the Director Innovation & Programs.

These roles are one of the key positions responsible for the growth for our organization and your first priority will be to define robust programs to meet the needs of our clients. Once programs are defined and aligned to the needs of our clients, you will manage the execution of the programs ensuring high-quality implementation.

You will need to connect the dots within and outside our organization to ensure high-quality implementation of projects and to build & maintain a network that is representative of i+solutions in the international arena.

You will lead, coach and develop either the Sourcing & Procurement team (about 18 FTE and 19 direct reports) or the Global Logistics & SCM team (about 11 FTE and 12 direct reports). You will grow talent pool and build robust succession plans. You will need to be a leader and role model to promote a culture of proactive engagement in realizing the goals of your team as well as our organisation.

What we are looking for:
• Master’s Degree or equivalent experience in Business Administration, Supply Chain Management, or SCM related field;
• 5-7 years of relevant experience, in Demand and Supply Chain Management, Sourcing, or in various business environments, ideally also on a managerial level;
• An inspiring, results oriented leader who is able to foster cross-border collaboration;
• An organized and effective project and people manager;
• Experience in working across borders and with multi-cultural teams;
• Excellent negotiation and communication skills.
