Reach your full potential as a (Junior) International Sales Manager

As (Junior) International Sales Manager at Anker Amsterdam Spirits (AAS), you will be responsible for expanding existing relationships and setting up new business for a number of markets in the EU. Travelling and visiting trade shows is an important part of the job and we encourage you to do so. This means a lot of change and dynamism. You never quite know in advance what a day will look like: never a dull moment.

You will work in the export department with a team consisting of 6 colleagues. At our office in Amsterdam, you will work intensively with all departments; purchasing, finance, marketing and sales in the Netherlands. You will work based on targets (individual and team level) by expanding your markets with existing relations & new customers and with sales (of our own brands). An important element is travelling; visiting customers (in various countries belonging to your portfolio) and trade fairs in order to proactively anticipate developments and create the favour factor.

This is you

You are proactive, strong in collaboration and show decisiveness. You are good at creating and maintaining an overview and follow up on outstanding actions. You are communicatively strong, work from self-confidence with pleasure, and know how to keep calm.

  • Have completed a commercial HBO / WO degree
  • Have a good command of the Dutch and English languages, both verbally and in writing
  • Good command of MS Office, especially Excel

We offer you

  • A competitive salary in line with your experience, plus an annual fixed Christmas bonus and a performance-related bonus

  • A travel allowance of up to 75 km one way if you work in the office or a home office allowance if you work remotely
  • A team of experienced colleagues with expertise in various fields who will be happy to show you the tricks of the trade
  • Advancement opportunities: at AAS, talent is seen and rewarded. On the other hand, you are in the lead to create and exploit your own opportunities: the step to bigger accounts is up to you!
  • An informal, open and friendly corporate culture; at Anker we like to party, we regularly go out to dinner or do something fun together. There is an informal and friendly atmosphere within the company. All departments are in the same office, which encourages mutual contact
