International Trading Company

vacancy Dutch Italian Trade Operations Executive Utrecht The Netherlands Milan Ravenna ItalyWe are an international trading company active in the trade and distribution of palm oil and part of a larger group. We trade with and deliver to customers all over the world, but from our Dutch, Spanish and Italian offices we focus mainly on the European continent.

With a young team of people, we have in recent years acquired a leading position in Europe and we continue to grow fast. In total 7 people work at our office in The Netherlands and in all European offices we have 14 people working.

Our ambition is high. In Europe, we are among the biggest traders in terms of tonnage shipped in palm oil. We continue to grow because we see opportunities and seize them (which is the quality of our team). All of our palm oil has sustainability certificates and we are committed to even further ‘sustain’ our palm oil from seed to final product on delivery. This is not always an easy task given the major interests at stake, but we believe that there is no way back.

For expansion of our European operations we are looking for a Dutch Italian Trade Operations Executive who will be based near Utrecht (The Netherlands)  or Milan or Ravenna (Italy) with a main focus on our customers in Italy.

Position Dutch Italian Trade Operations Executive / Italy – The Netherlands

In your role as Dutch Italian Trade Operations Executive your focus is at all matters related to the transport of palm oil from European ports to the local customers in Italy. You do this in close cooperation with experienced colleagues (international) operations. You are based near Utrecht, The Netherlands (or Milan or Ravenna, Italy might also be possible). You travel frequently between these cities, but you will also visit sometimes our operations in Spain.

In your daily job, you are the one who organizes and controls everything related to the distribution of our oil. As you already have some experience in a Trade Operations Executive role, the work will be known to you:

  • Manage the logistical arrangements pertaining to the delivery of goods to customers in Italy;
  • Oversee on a daily basis all matters pertaining to the inventory (loading, post-loading etc.);
  • Ensure all post-loading documents (customs, certificate of analysis etc.) are in place;
  • Act as Italian liaison with shipper, customs, handling agents and port authorities;
  • Perform month end inventories reconciliation and produce weekly reports of open contracts for submission to Credit team;
  • Ensure timely collection of funds from customers;
  • Process necessary payments in relation to the trades (freight charges, duties etc.);
  • Perform customer facing role with view to enhance and maintain relationships with customers, surveyors, fiscal agents and port agents etc.

In your job you have a great deal of independence and you are an entrepreneur. Your entrepreneurship has to do with the fact that you play a crucial role in the whole distribution process. You are the spider in the web, you know what is going on and are able to address the issues assertive.

You play with the availability of the volumes in storage tanks by extraditing smartly. And once you have perfectly charged and delivered the goods within the stipulated time, you try to seduce the customer to pay just a few days before payment date. This assertiveness is appreciated and helps us to be successful.

Further you work and think actively in our team. Together we are strong, we achieve exceptional results and we can penetrate the market further.

Profile Dutch Italian Trade Operations Executive / Italy – The Netherlands

Ideally you have 0+ to 4 years of (relevant) experience and you are able to nearly fulfil this role independently. Your experience is preferably in working with palm oil, but if you have a different experience and you think you can become successful in the role, we look forward to receiving your application.

You have at least an education in Logistics & Economics (or equivalent) at bachelor level and are familiar with SAP Materials Management and Sales & Distribution.

You speak your languages, where English and Italian is a must. Preferably living in the Utrecht region or the willingness to move within a year. Should you live in Italy near or in Milan or Ravenna, please apply also as we would like to discuss possibilities.

Frequently travel abroad should fit your personal situation.

We offer

A position within a relatively small and young team. Although we are no start-up, we have similarities: we are growing fast, sometimes unstructured (but managed to lead in the right direction), have a high ambition and your input is more than appreciated; particularly in the area of Trade Operations: how are we able to do it smarter / better, with less effort, but in perfect control.
