Do you enjoy working in an agile and challenging environment with high focus on the customer? Do you want to drive changes and bring innovations in a multicultural environment? Do you embrace continuous improvements and enjoy working in teams? Are you pro-active, service minded and target oriented?
Well, then you should apply today. We at Volvo Group Trucks Purchasing are looking for a buyer in the Uptime & Adaptation (U&A) team to drive the portfolio of gear shifting systems, steering arms and “built to specifications” solutions…and we need you!
WHAT IS OUR OFFER TO YOU?
Volvo mission is to drive prosperity in the transport industry and one of the foundation stone is the customer success! Fulfilling customers’ demands rapidly and keep our promises by having their product up and running during its complete life cycle is exiting but might be also a true challenge. That requires for sure a change in mindset and to be innovative, capturing creative supply solutions on the market as well as driving it together with our preferred suppliers.
Typically, the business model for high volume production does not fit with the business we operate for service market parts. The challenge is then to structure and operate the business in the way which is efficient for the service market business and in that way, bring value to the end customers!
