After training under close supervision for a period of approximately one year, you will be responsible for your own projects (around 15). You will work in a team to realize the best strategically advantageous DMF. To compile the DMF you will use the knowledge and research data as obtained by multiple internal departments as well as from external suppliers. Next to that your tasks will include all relevant negotiations and correspondence with the competent authorities.
