Ready to step into an international pharmaceutical company to join us caring for the world and make it a place without disease? Sounds challenging, right? It certainly is, but lots of small steps make big moves. Customer Logistics Services (CLS) of the European Distribution Network (EDN) team contributes to this goal by managing the operational distribution processes of Janssen pharma products. Passionate about distribution? Eager to learn more of our supply chain processes and play a role in it? Maybe you'll be our new Supply Chain Specialist!

Having a process-based approach and being able to analyse situations and data are important competences. Linked to this, project management skills and a strong interest in the lean way of thinking are a big plus.

* Coordinate repack, return and sampling activities within the DCs and make sure all is executed on time and compliant.
* Provide periodic management information on our KPIs and initiate improvement initiatives to impact these results.
* Initiate and/or participate in projects within our department or cross-departmental.

* Master's Degree required, preferably in logistics or business management or equivalent.

* Structured and accurate. Apply high standards of ethics, quality compliance and accountability and have good communication skills.

* Stress-resistant, problem-solving, analytical and have a process-based approach.
* Put the customer first, venturous and tackle problems proactively.
