[THE APPLICATION DEADLINE WAS ON 14th OCTOBER 2018]

As the Export Manager, you will be responsible for the export-related sales, product management and marketing duties.

You may be the person we are looking for, if you are an open-minded, active and result-driven team player, who takes on challenges in a solution-oriented and constructive manner, and you are not worried about taking responsibility. The genuine interest in the food industry, and particularly bakery products, is the starting point of your work.

The Export Manager is expected to have good organisation and decision-making skills, as well as a commercial and innovative way of thinking. The successful management of the duties requires applicable business training, experience in sales and sales work in exports. Familiarity in the food industry and experience in project work shall be considered an advantage in the work.

The job requires good verbal and written Finnish and English language skills. Language proficiency in Swedish and other languages shall be considered an advantage in the work. Skills in the use of modern communication tools and applications are important for completing the work duties.
