As our Junior Purchaser you will be supporting our Procurement Manager and Logistics Manager in their daily operations, and secure timely attention to purchase orders, as well as a smooth supply chain.

To that extent, a lot of your tasks will revolve around our purchasing orders and we expect you to take responsibility for timely deliveries across the purchasing activities for Procurement, Logistic and Product Quality.

To be successful in this position, you must be able to handle multiple tasks in a dynamic work environment. You effectively manage communication with several internal and external stakeholders. Keeping a great project flow is also second nature to you in all areas of your daily work tasks.

Our new colleague must also:

  • Be a dedicated person who is self-driven and thrives with responsibility
  • Have the ability to help and support across several departments

If only a few of the above mentioned apply to you, but you still think you are a great fit for this role, then please do not hesitate to apply anyways. Tell us why you are the right candidate for us and show us your drive.

What will you enjoy?

When joining Better Energy, you become part of a business that is driving the green energy transition in Denmark as well as internationally.

With your employment, you will enjoy a good lunch scheme, a private health insurance and an IT scheme. You will also enjoy the following:
